Girls star Adam Driver is on fire! He's got an exciting slate of features coming up. He's rumored to be the frontrunner for Warner Bros' Batman vs. Superman's Nightwing, and The Wrap reports he's now signed on to Jeff Nichols' follow-up to the critically praised Mud, called Midnight Special. On this Warner Bros. property, Driver joins a cast that includes Kirsten Dunst, Joel Edgerton, and Nichols' go-to leading man Michael Shannon. Written and directed by Nichols, Midnight Special is described as a sci-fi drama that follows a father and his eight-year-old son forced to run when the former discovers the latter possesses special powers. What powers this son wields are being kept under wraps for now, along with what role Dunst, Driver, and Edgerton will play. We know Shannon will front the feature as the fleeing father, but no report has been made who will play his boy. »
