THE SINGER AND THE MAN OF STEEL
Nanaimo-born singer-songwriter Allison Crowe has confirmed that she will appear in the upcoming Superman summer blockbuster Man of Steel. “I will never, ever forget it,” Crowe said in a statement about her experience on the film. “Honestly, I can think back to it now and still freak out, in the best way ever.” Crowe is unable to say more about her involvement due to a signed confidentiality agreement.
But according to comicbooknews.com, which cites a leaked production call sheet, Crowe filmed her scenes (as a singer in a bar) at Nanaimo’s Cassidy Inn Pub back in October. The film from Watchmen director Zack Snyder is due June 14, and stars Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner and Amy Adams. Crowe is reporting that she will attend the red-carpet première in New York in June. Talk about perfect timing: Crowe — who has lived in Corner Brook, N.L., since 2006 — has a new album, Newfoundland Vinyl, due June 25.
