Wachowski's to make Superman trilogy?
File this one under big rumour for now, but could it be the Wachowski brothers are taking on a Superman trilogy?
The Superman reboot has been slow going at best. Is this the way forward?
The sequel to Superman Returns was going nowhere. And then they confirmed that they weren't going for a sequel, and that a reboot of the franchise was the plan. We also heard from Mark Millar, who had a vision to make a trilogy of films.
He stated the Wachowski Brothers had been approached to re-boot the franchise as a trilogy and they are currently reviewing their options as its like being asked to take the final play in a superbowl final. Says if they do agree, he will likely either succumb to providing second unit support on the movie or will champion the directorship of Plastic Man - He started to giggle as he stated its like a young child for the Brothers and they wont give that up easily.
To go along with this, apparently Bryan Singer has turned down the Superman reboot. And he will move onto Logan's Run instead. The Wachowski's are definitely no stranger to the world of comic books, either as writers or adapters. Could they make a great Superman trilogy?
