It may be a low-budget affair, but the $15 million film Bus 657 is attracting quite a cast. Deadline is reporting that, aside from all ready nabbing Robert De Niro, the cast will now also include Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen) and Kate Bosworth (Superman Returns). The film, which is set to start filming next month, will center on a heist and the subsequent hostage situation that ensues after it.
Morgan plays a desperate man with a sick daughter and seemingly no way to pay for her necessary treatment. When a greedy co-worker played by Dave Bautista (Guardians of The Galaxy) suggests that they rob a casino as a way to get the necessary cash, it sets a dangerous plan in motion that eventually includes the two men capturing a bus full of innocent people. De Niro plays the casino owner, and Bosworth is his estranged daughter. Last, but not least, Gina Carano »

As long as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice continues to film exteriors in Detroit, bystanders with cell phone cameras will be there to capture at least some of the action.

Check them out below, then read on for more details about who may have caused the destruction seen in previous set photos.
Warning: Spoiler Alert!
Earlier this week, a set video and numerous photos showed one of Ben Affleck's stand-ins rehearsing a scene where he saves a young girl from being crushed by a collapsing building, which was shot in the Corktown area of Detroit.

Director Zack Snyder is currently filming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" in Detroit, where the props department was moving a bunch of paintings. One of those paintings is of an older man, who may be Thomas Wayne, the father of Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). While we are just guessing that that's Thomas Wayne, there are plenty of clues to support that. The painting looks to be of some rich founder of a major company and the person strongly resembles actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who appeared in Snyder's "Watchmen." So did the director bring back Morgan to play Batman's father? Seems that way. Take a look at the painting below and let us know what you think. Photo: (click to enlarge) »
