August 19, 2002: JJ Abrams Superman Script... Really Good!Coming Attractions are reporting that they know the real reason behind the postponement of the "Batman vs Superman" movie...
According to an informer to the Coming Attractions website, JJ Abrams handed in his 200 page script for a new Superman movie to Warner Bros., and they were so blown away by his treatment, that they want to fast track the movie ahead of anything else.
The only problem it appears is the unavailability of direct McG to start any time soon, as he is still working on "Charlie's Angels 2" and Abrams is reportedly set on having McG direct his script as they were in on the ideas together. Warner Bros. is looking to McG to give his blessing on allowing another director to take on the movie ASAP, and have the following directors on their wish list... David Fincher, director of Panic Room, Fight Club and Seven. Michael Mann, director of The Insider, Manhunter and Ali. Rob Bowman, director of The X-Files: Fight the Future and Reign of Fire. And, Steven Soderbergh, director of Erin Brockovich, Traffic, Ocean's 11 and Solaris.
None of the above rumors have been confirmed, and only time will tell as to what truths there are in any of this... It does beg the question though, if it is true... How good can the script really be?
