" A new breaking story seems to indicate that director Christopher Nolan is at the forefront of yet another superhero franchise at Warner Bros. Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting that Warner Bros. has brought on Christopher Nolan as a "mentor" a new Superman film.
It was said that Nolan's strong ties to the studio were among the top reasons they brought him on board, and they want Nolan to, "ensure The Man Of Steel gets off the ground after a 3 1/2-year hiatus." It was also reported that this new film would not be a sequel to the 2006 film Superman Returns and will be a brand new take on the character. However, it was said that both Superman Returns director Bryan Singer and star Brandon Routh were not totally out of the running concerning the reboot.
We were told that "Bryan or Brandon are not completely out of it yet. But Warner Bros doesn't have a handle yet on it, either. [Producer] Jon Peters is trying to make something happen since he stands to benefit financially. But they [the studio] need to hear a great story that makes sense." Another insider explained to us, "We know what we don't want to do. But we don't know what we want to do. We learned a lot from the last movie, and we want to get it right this time."
