Yes, the beloved geek filmmaker (Slither) revealed via Twitter that he’s cast heavy metal rocker/horror director Rob Zombie as the voice of God in his upcoming superhero send-up Super. The film stars Rainn Wilson as a man who’s wife falls into the clutches of a drug dealer; in an effort to rescue her, he becomes the (sure-to-be comically inept) superhero, The Crimson Bolt. The film also stars Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, and previous Gunn collaborators Gregg Henry, Michael Rooker and Captain Mal Reynolds himself, Nathan Fillion playing a character called The Holy Avenger.
