Brandon Routh will play a part-native American in new movie Crooked Arrows.

The ex-Superman must be feeling the pressure’s off after Henry Cavill took over suit responsibilities, having signed up for a rare leading role.

Directed by Steve Rash ( Can’t Buy Me Love ), Crooked Arrows is sees a native American high school lacrosse team joining the prep school league.

Routh’s character is the son of the tribe’s leader, who becomes coach to the team in the face of overwhelming competition.

It’s standard sports movie stuff, then, with a culture clash twist.

Filming kicks off in Boston next month.
