Check out this very, very interesting rumor. AICN was sent in a scoop from a reader who had seen an interview with V for Vendetta director James McTeigue on a Berlin telvision station, and the director revealed that the Wachowski brothers’ next project, Plastic Man (of which he was scheduled to do some 2nd-unit shooting) has been put on hold at Warner Bros.
The bigger news, however, has to do with what the scooper has to say about the Superman franchise:
Bryan Singer has refused to undertake a re-boot of the Superman franchise and has left the Executives at WB with no choice but to takea fresh creative direction.
He stated the Wachowski Brothers had been approached to re-boot the franchise as a trilogy and they are currently reviewing their options as its like being asked to take the final play in a superbowl final. Says if they do agree, he will likely either succumb to providing second unit support on the movie or will champion the directorship of Plastic Man – He started to giggle as he stated its like a young child for the Brothers and they wont give that up easily.
