IESB.net spoke with producer Lauren Shuler Donner about her various upcoming projects, including Wolverine, Constantine, X-Men, Cirque Du Freak and Magneto. Here is an excerpt:
IESB: Whats the superhero update?
LSD: Well, we're going to do Wolverine, I hope in the fall and we're out to a director, now, we have a good script. And I think we're going to do Young Magneto, we have a really great script, we have a director that is interested and he'll do a rewrite on the script. But, it's young Magneto and it's a young Xavier. Not "kid young," but you know, when Magneto got through the Holocaust and when he, Erik Lehnsherr, became "Magneto."
IESB: There's been talk and we recently asked Hugh about this, regarding Bryan Singer saying he had been offered to direct Wolverine, but I guess there is a schedule conflict regarding Man of Steel, is there still a possibility Bryan could still do Wolverine?
LSD: I would love it. We would love nothing more than to have Bryan do Wolverine, but Bryan is developing the sequel to Superman so I don't know, it depends on scheduling, but nothing would please all of us more.
IESB: Hugh also said that he was going to do Baz's [Lurhman] film, and then he wants four months to really bulk up and get in as best shape as possible. He was thinking January or February of 08...
LSD: Yes, I know, he is thinking that, we're thinking Fall. Sorry Hugh! [laughter]
