Michael Shannon has been paying his acting dues for over two decades, but it could be argued that his career changed dramatically when he stole every scene he was in when appearing alongside Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio in "Revolutionary Road" in 2008.

Shannon has had a big year indeed, playing Superman's nemesis General Zod in "Man of Steel", starring in the acclaimed indie flick "The Iceman", and having a small but potent role in Jeff Nichols' "Mud". Now news has hit that Shannon is set to join Andrew Garfield in a new project called "99 Homes".

Working from his own screenplay, Ramin Bahrani ("Strangers") is directing the picture, which centers on a young man (Garfield) who finds himself in deep economic debt and his house is foreclosed on. Trying to get his life back together, he takes a job with a real estate broker (Shannon), who ends up being the same man who snatched his house from under him. The plot continues to thicken as the broker "entices him into schemes to embezzle money from the government."

Happy Shannon is keeping it close to home, ditching Superman to work with Spider-Man this round. I've loved the choices both Shannon and Garfield have been making for their careers to date, and I look forward to seeing the two act alongside each other.

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
