Superman Returns

May 1, 2007: Jon Peters Talks Superman Movie Sequel

HollywoodReporter.com interviewed Jon Peters about his career so far, and during the interview asked him about the status of the up-coming sequel to "Superman Returns". Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    Q: What stage is the next installment of "Superman" in?

    Peters: Right now, Bryan Singer is working on the story, and hopefully, that will be a script by the end of the year. And hopefully, we'll be in preproduction by, say, January or February of next year. "Superman Returns" was an amazing effort. You're talking about a story that's been made before; you're talking about the fact that we had to re-explore his youth, his origin. And now, the second movie allows us to go do things that people haven't seen before. Bryan is the best director I've ever worked with. It's very easy to produce or be with someone who's a brilliant, brilliant person. I equate my relationship with Bryan to the relationship I had with Barbra Streisand. Barbra was so gifted that it was easy to be able to adjust a little bit here or there. With Bryan, it's the same thing. He's a great person, and it's amazing cause he's such a sweet guy. He's almost like one of my kids, in a way.

    Q: "Superman Returns" must have been a daunting project for a director to take on.

    Peters: (Singer) comes up with things that blow my mind. What he did with "Superman" -- and I worked on that, obviously, through various different directors over 12 years -- is that he came up with a take that brought heart to it. It created a love story; it created a dynamic with the little boy -- things he saw that a lot of us didn't see. I saw a lot of the action. I saw the otherworldly stuff. But I didn't see what he saw, which allows you to get to the otherworldly things.
