The Wachowski Brothers Possibly Approached to Direct 'Superman' Reboot


With 'Plastic Man' film project reportedly being delayed indefinitely, filmmakers Larry and Andy Wachowski are allegedly offered to re-boot the 'Superman' franchise as a trilogy.

An interesting tidbit about "Superman" reboot and the Wachowski Brothers has been thrown in. According to a source at Ain't It Cool News, the writing/directing duo known for their work in "The Matrix" trilogy have been approached to reboot "Superman" franchise as a trilogy and they are "currently reviewing their options".

The tipster noted that James McTeigue, the director of the brothers' "V for Vendetta" film has broken the news during a television interview in Berlin. Allegedly, the helmer claimed that a shakeup at Warner Bros. has delayed the Wachowskis' live-action "Plastic Man" and opened a discussion for the two to possibly direct the reboot.

In addition to the Wachowskis' news, the scooper also revealed that "Superman Returns" director Bryan Singer has declined to direct another "Superman" movie since he wants to move on with Joel Silver-produced "Logan's Run". Singer's alleged decision has been said to leave Warner Bros. "with no choice but to take a fresh creative direction" on the man of steel reboot project.

Previously, it has been reported that comic book writer and creator Mark Millar has planned on a trilogy for the "Superman" reboot itself. He mentioned that the project will be an 8-hour Superman story divided into three films and released one after the other consecutively. On the story, it will follow the entire life of Kal-El from his birth to the last man left on Earth. It is still unclear whether "Superman" reboot will take the title of the scrapped sequel, "Superman: The Man of Steel".
