Chris Columbus Left Sub-Mariner

November 14, 2005 08:57:17 GMT

If Variety has previously reported that Chris Columbus is about to direct a movie based on the Marvel Comics character Prince Namor, entitled "Sub-Mariner," the director himself recently revealed that he probably wouldn't do that. Why? Columbus won't explain, but according to him, he's now doesn't know what he will do next, and he probably won't even think about it until after he's done promoting his new film.

Moreover, he also says that it would be too difficult to move his whole family back to England in order to direct another chapter of the "Harry Potter" franchise, as much as he enjoys the fifth and sixth books. Well, hope someone would willingly take Columbus' part to direct the action adventure drama genre.
