September 27, 2010: Could Darren Aronofsky Direct Superman Movie?

Superman Movie News The LA Times reports that another name can be added to the list of those supposedly being courted by Christopher Nolan for the role of director for the new Superman movie... Darren Aronofsky.

    As he intensifies his search for a director on the Warner Bros. reboot, Christopher Nolan, who's godfathering the new Superman and producing the David Goyer script, has had discussions with Aronofsky about the job, sources say.

    He and Nolan have had similar roots, if vastly different trajectories. Both gained acclaim for low-budget indies that told fractured stories (Nolan with "Following" and Aronofsky with "Pi") and have continued to maintain an auteur vision even as they worked with bigger stars. If Warner Bros. and financier Legendary are going to give Nolan a significant degree of creative freedom, it makes sense to go with someone who knows how to make the most of that.
