Superman: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Director McG is no longer attached to the next installment of Warner Bros. Pictures' Superman. A Warners spokesperson confirmed that the studio and the director have amicably parted ways. The primary reason given was the inability of the two parties to agree over a budget. Casting also was an issue. Part of the conflict between the director and the studio was the shooting location. McG favored a New York shoot, while the studio favored Australia.
