The Following's Susan Heyward will be playing Det. Pilgrim in Sony PlayStation's live-action Powers series...

The casting for Powers, a combination of crime thriller and superhero fantasy based on the comic book series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, is gradually coming together.

While the actor playing male lead Det. Christian Walker is yet to be announced, The Following and Poltergeist remake actress Susan Heyward (below) has been nabbed to play his colleague Det. Deena Pilgrim, a role previously taken by Lucy Punch in the now-defunct FX adaptation.

Walker and Pilgrim are homicide detectives in a world that superpowers have made a very dangerous place. The live-action adaptation will be Sony PlayStation TV's debut series. 

The first two episode of Powers are to be directed by Hard Candy and Hannibal's David Slade, with scripts by writer and novelist, Charlie Huston. Max Fowler and Adam Godley also star.
