Q. Do you think you'll still be casting an unknown for the role?
A: It's possible. That's what I'd like to do. People want to see a character, not a movie star.
Q. What's your take on the script that was floating around the net?
A. Oh god. Yeah, that wasn't even a draft. It was ridiculous. Some old script - someone with too much time on his or her hands. I mean I agree with some stuff, I mean some of it spilt over into my script, but Lex Luthor is NOT going to be an Alien and we ARE blowing up Krypton. It keeps the law that people know but it goes a step further. I can do the fuck I want. I mean I have DC Comics and all the creators of the cartoon behind me. Some people aren't going to like it, that's inevitable. Thing is, I know it'll be a boring movie If I just remake Dick Donner's film, because it's already done. I mean I haven't changed it much at all - I just added some new shit, so how can anyone be mad at me. And we're talking about the trilogy - it's full on. Conference calls with the studio and Jon Peters and...
Q. So are you basically remaking the first one or are you starting afresh?
A. It's a re-inventor but it's based on the story, "The Death of Superman". It's going to have the old mythology, but it's not going to be camp, it's going to be a bit more psychological. More traumatic and it's going to be darker.
