OVERLORD Duo Rejoin For Superhero Thriller, THE HEAVY

Borys Kit over at The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive update officially announcing James Avery and J.J. Abrams for what’s been described as none other than a subversive take on the superhero genre. The Heavy is the name and sounds like an original, inviting concept on which Abrams will produce with Avery at the helm.

News of the film comes following last week’s festive appeal to attendees during Paramount’s panel at CinemaCon in Vegas for the Son Of A Gun director’s latest period WWII horror sci-fi, Overlord. That film, penned by Billy Ray and Mark L. Smith and telling of American paratroopers on D-Day who discover Nazis’ hidden experiments with the undead, opens on October 26.
