Spidey will have some good company in the indie 99 HomesTHR reports that Michael Shannon has signed on to star opposite Andrew Garfield in writer/director Ramin Bahrani’s (Man Push Cart) indie, which centers on a desperate man (Garfield) who, after losing his house to foreclosure, goes to work for the same real estate broker that took his home.  He soon finds himself evicting homeowners left and right, and gets caught up in helping the broker embezzle money from the government, leading to a rather a heavy conscience.  In an excellent bit of casting, Shannon will be playing the broker.

Shannon is also attached to reteam with Taking Shelter director Jeff Nichols on the sci-fi film Midnight Special, but it’s unknown whether that or 99 Homes will go first.  He can currently be seen on the fourth season of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.
