What happens when the man who used to be Superman and the man who used to be a reaper of souls are working security at a genetics lab? You are only a click away because that is exactly what happens in the short film ‘Cost of Living’ starring Brandon Routh (Chuck, Scott Pilgrim and Chuck) and Bret Harrison (Reaper, The Loop, V, Breaking In).
Here’s an added bonus, the voice of the Alpha team leader is none other than Michael Rosenbaum, Smallville’s Lex Luthor and Harrison’s Co-Star on the soon to be returning FOX series ‘Breaking In’.
Here’s the film’s synopsis:
Brandon Routh (Superman Returns, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World) and Bret Harrison (Reaper) play (respectively) Silas and Jerry, a pair of working stiffs employed by a scientific facility that often loses control of its “experiments” and thus must be put down violently. During one crisis our heroes are dispatched on a suicide mission into the darkest and most dangerous bowels of the building, and as Silas and Jerry stare certain death in its off-camera face they discuss their futures, including a possible transfer to a facility that doesn’t have so many monster problems.
