The Superman Home Page reports:
This is not confirmed, but various sources and information shared between myself and the guys running www.Superman-V.com lead us to believe that M. Night Shyamalan is writing and directing this new Superman movie.
I am a big fan of M Night Shyamalan (Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs) but I am curious as to what got him thinking of taking on this genre. On the other hand, M Night fanatics report that he is a HUGE Superman fan and even has a 2ft statue of Supes in his office. He is also writing an introduction for Alex Ross’s upcoming “Mythology” book. Who knew?
Superhero Hype is also stating the most recent rumours that they are stuffing Brendan Fraser in the tights of steel. I am still an advocate that Nicholas Cage would have made a perfect Superman. I personally can’t see Fraser fitting the part. Although Brendan does have a few cartoon icons to his list of characters (George of the Jungle, Dudley DoRight) and he does have that large physique and solid jaw, can we really take him seriously as Big Blue?
