September 12, 2002: McG Talks Superman MovieCinescape caught up with McG to discuss the up-coming "Superman" film which he has signed on to Direct. What follows is an excerpt from the interview...
"SUPERMAN is looking good," McG says. "I have seen a draft of the script, which I could not possibly be more enthusiastic about. That is ideally the next picture - right after CHARLIE'S ANGELS 2 to go right into SUPERMAN."
This talk comes after weeks of rumors McG has departed the project. So after so many years of development, which ranged from scripts killing Superman off to ones hinting they're sequels to the Christopher Reeve series of the late 1970s and early 1980s, what's the current incarnation?
"It's a genesis story and it tells the story of Superman from day one - Krypton, Smallville - all the way through, the whole nine yards," McG told us. "[ALIAS writer/creator] J.J. Abrams is a fantastic talent and I'm delighted to be partnered with him on that... Right now, my energy is going into the one Superman genesis story, because no one has seen it since the [Richard] Donner pictures in the '70s, and that was sort of in a pre-ILM world. I want to have the opportunity to introduce a Superman that takes advantage of the visual effects that we have at our disposal at this time."
