Superman Returns Scribes Not Doing Man of Steel


Duo Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris have opted not to get back in writing for the "Superman Returns" follow-up, "Superman: The Man of Steel."

Though it may have the same leading star and director, "Superman: The Man of Steel" definitely won't get the writers of its predecessor, "Superman Returns", in it.

Report coming from Variety has just revealed that duo Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris have sadly decided not to reprise their writing duties for the project that would reunite them with helmer Bryan Singer. Following their departure, Warner Bros. Pictures reportedly is now taking pitches for the project from other writers amidst its current effort to find the proper cast for "Justice League of America."

In the meantime, Warner Bros. also confirms that pic will indeed be a sequel in its denial to words out there saying the studio would start anew on the DC Comics' beloved superhero character, just like Marvel Studios does with "The Incredible Hulk." The flick is said to pump up the action quotient as Singer promised last year at San Diego Comic-Con with Brandon Routh likely to wear the "S" on his chest again.

As for Dougherty and Harris, the twosome are said to pursue more directing gigs next in their career. The former is learned to have recently finished filming his full-length feature directorial debut "Trick 'r Treat" while the latter one is preparing to helm Daniel Craig starrer "I, Lucifer" which he also penned.
