September 25, 2010: Directors on Nolan's Alleged Short List Respond

Superman Movie News Following yesterday's rumor of a list of potential film directors being considered to direct the next Superman movie by Chris Nolan, two of the directors on that alleged list have now responded publicly. First up, Duncan Jones ("Moon", "Source Code") tweeted: "About Superman... I'm going to say something really cheesy; Can't talk about it, but an honor to be on the list. Interesting times!"

Then, director Matt Reeves ("Cloverfield"; "Let Me In") relayed mostly surprise during an interview at JoBlo: The first Reeves said he heard of his attachment to SUPERMAN was when a fan came up to him at Fantastic Fest and told him about it. "I was surprised," he told us in an interview that will air next week on the AITH Podcast. "I really have no idea if any of that is true. It's certainly an amazing project, but I would be surprised..."

As an aside, it's been reported that AICN.com's Harry Knowles posted a comment indicating he has information regarding another name not on the list being seriously considered. According to Knowles, "I wouldn't place money that it'll be any of those names from what I have heard off the record. Sigh."
