New York-born filmmaker Peter Berg has been confirmed to be the director of "Tonight, He Comes."
Finally, everything turns out as expected. Director Peter Berg has ultimately reached a deal to helm "Tonight, He Comes" after previously being reported to be in negotiations to take the duty few days ago.
Officially becoming the fourth director to handle the project after Michael Mann, Jonathan Mostow, and Gabriele Muccino, Berg is set to lead the production as it begins in May with an eye for a summer 2008 release. Mann, James Lassiter, and Akiva Goldsman all are seating as producers.
Featuring Will Smith as the lead, "Tonight" centers on a superhero who causes waves in a small town as he falls for an alluring housewife and is intended to contain many visual effects as any superhero movie but a storyline that is less predictable.
