In the wake of his success on "300", more and more directing stints are coming for Zack Snyder from Warner Bros. Pictures.

After that of "Watchmen", the Green Bay, Wisconsin born filmmaker now is reportedly attached to both direct and produce "The Illustrated Man", a remake of the studio's 1969 feature of the same name starring Rod Steiger in the title role. Based on Ray Bradbury's collection of short stories published in 1951, the original concerns a man almost completely covered in tattoos who is looking for the woman drawing all the intricate designs which each turns out to hide a futuristic story.

While names to star have not yet been revealed, it is learned that "Watchmen" scribe Alex Tze will once again get together with Snyder to pen the project's screenplay. Meanwhile, Snyder's wife Deborah Snyder is on board to produce alongside Denise Di Novi and Frank Darabont with Wesley Coller and Alison Greenspan both executive producing.
