March 24, 2002: J.J. Abrams Talks New Superman MovieEdward Gross from ComicFlicks has conducted an interview with J.J. Abrams, the screenwriter who has signed on to write the script for a new Superman movie. Here's an excerpt from the interview...
Although J.J. Abrams (creator of the television series FELICITY and ALIAS, and screenwriter of such films as ARMAGEDDON) is the latest in a long list of writers whose names have been attached to the theatrical revival of Superman, things bode well for this version - to be directed by McG - to actually take flight.
QUESTION: From what I've gathered from people I've spoken to in the past, producer Jon Peters isn't much of a fan of the Superman costume or the image of Superman flying. This, of course, begs the question: why bother making a Superman movie?
ABRAMS: It's safe to say that if Superman doesn't fly, it would be a disappointment. I do think that we're approaching this in a very fresh way, but there are certain things that people have come to realize are important. You have to have the costume and you want to do a Superman movie that will be so satisfying. I'm so sick of going to big blockbuster movies and leaving feeling like I died a little bit, like, "Oh my God, how disappointing was that?" What's so exciting for us is that we're approaching this thing knowing and feeling the kind of movie that as kids we used to see. I feel that we're going to try as hard as we can to make this a satisfying experience.
