Quick Update: Movie Deals in place

  • It's time to put the rumors to rest.  Zack Synder (300, Watchmen) has been selected, by Christopher Nolan no less, to direct the new Superman reboot.  Nolan will be producing the film and David S. Goyer is writing the script.  Yeah, they're doing this again, so soon after Superman Returns a mere 4 years ago.  Will our thirst for superhero movies never end?  So now that director has been selected, Who's Superman?  Brandon Routh, please do not be standing by the phone.  I like the idea of Jon Hamm as EW suggests but I think he'll be busy with Mad Men.  However, back when Brett Ratner was supposed to direct Superman Returns, his first choice was Matt Bomer (White Collar).  It could still work.  
  • Bourne will be back.  Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton), who, incidentally, wrote the previous two scripts in the Bourne saga, is back to direct the fourth movie titled Bourne Legacy.  No word on whether Matt Damon will return as Bourne.  Could he be tempted back or will he be too busy with his current projects? (Side note: Just checked Gilroy's IMDB page and am shocked, shocked I say, to discover that he wrote and directed The Cutting Edge! How did I not know this?)
  • Right, where were we?  In the trend of books turned into movies, here's a new one.  These books haven't even been published yet but Summit Entertainment, looking ahead to life after the Twilight series, has grabbed the rights of Julie Cross' unpublished trilogy, Tempest, about a teenager who time-travels into the past, two years before his girlfriend is murdered.
