Superman shut down?

01.28.2003

While BATMAN heats up across the lot at Warner Bros, SUPERMAN seems to have cooled off considerably - in fact to a standstill. The Last Son of Krypton reports that pre-production on the film has been shut down indefinitely because there is "no director, cast or usable script; therefore they can't make any progress." Rumors of Brett Ratner's departure have been swirling for weeks and Michael Bay seemed to be the frontrunner to replace him. But now, LSOK's report says Bay has officially passed saying he couldn't leave BAD BOYS 2 early to start filming and WB seems to have given up on getting him because his cost was too high. So what now? Ratner seems to have moved on to RUSH HOUR 3 while his departure and Bay's passing seems to have sent both Joel Silver and Josh Hartnett (the rumored frontrunner for the Caped Crusader) walking as well. Now a search has begun for a "major director" to replace Ratner with Tarsem (THE CELL), Antoine Fuqua (TRAINING DAY) and Dominic Sena (SWORDFISH) being rumored candidates. One thing that has remained the same is writer JJ Abrams who continues to rewrite the script. We'll keep a close eye on this and hope yet another comic movie at the WB doesn't fall through the cracks...
