A while back, we told you that a series based on Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming‘s comic Powers was in the works over at FX. And then … nothing else. But now there’s news! Charles S. Dutton has been cast as Captain Cross, “the head of a homicide police department where detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim investigate crimes involving those with superpowers.” So far, this is the only official casting news, but Kyle Chandler (of the soon-to-be-late Friday Night LIghts) has been in talks to play Christian Walker. That is still rumory at this point.
The pilot was written by Charles H. Eglee (The Walking Dead, Dexter), who will also executive produce. Michael Dinner (who has worked on Sons of Anarchy and Justified) will direct.
