Superman makes Five Dollars a Day

Nigel Cole’s latest is raising Cain


Dean Cain looks to have scored one of his bigger parts in more recent years. His last major film role was opposite Denzel Washington in 2003′s “Out of Time”.

The former “Lois & Clark” star has joined the cast of Nigel Cole’s ”Five Dollars a Day”, starring Christopher Walken and Allesandro Nivola.

Sharon Stone, Amanda Peet and Peter Coyote have also been added.

Walken plays Nat, a grifter father who prides himself on living like a king on five dollars a day. He enlists the companionship of his son Flynn (Nivola) for a cross-country odyssey that proves to be quite humorous and poignant. Along the way Nat plans a sting on his old partner, Bert Kruger (Coyote), a wealthy guy who stole Nat’s wife many years ago. Sharon Stone also stars as Nat’s old girlfriend Dolores.

Production began September 10th on the film.

2008 looks like it could be Cain’s year – he’s also guest-starring on the next season of “Smallville”.
