May 18, 2006: Why Ratner's Superman Movie Failed

IF Magazine has published an interview with X-Men: The Last Stand director Brett Ratner, and asked him why he feels his attempt at making a new Superman movie did not succeed...

    "My version of it which was with J.J. was so expensive, because we were shooting on a planet," explains Ratner. "We were shooting a civil war on Krypton so to build the planet was a little expensive especially for Warner Bros. and with an unknown actor. So I just couldn't see myself as doing 'Tom Cruise as Superman.' I just thought that it had to be unknown the same way Christopher Reeve was an unknown."
