The Chicago area will have a starring role in a ''Superman'' movie remake.

There are new faces for the new big screen adventure. British actor Henry Cavill is the lead in "Superman: Man of Steel."

The role of Lois Lane will be played by Amy Adams. Director Zack Snyder says Adams has all the qualities to play the feisty reporter -- humor, grit and beauty.

Crain's Chicago Business reports that filming will take place in the Chicago area starting in August and will be centered in far west suburban Plano.
