The Movie That Cannot Be Made gets another sucker -- er, Singer.
Bryan Singer, director of "X-Men," "X2," and "The Usual Suspects," has signed up to direct the long, longtime in the works "Superman" movie.
The good news: The movie will finally have a good director. Singer has made some great films, and not just ones starting with "X" -- "Usual Suspects" and "Apt Pupil" are fantastic.
The bad news: Singer's next jobs, "X-Men 3" and "Logan's Run," will be pushed back or handed to other people.
The worse news: If Singer is still going to do those movies, he'll wait until he finishes "Superman," which at this rate, could be 2567.
The other good news: It's back to square one with the Super-movie: No dubious casting (yet), no insipid script by "Alias" guy J.J. Abrams.
And the curse continues! Warner remains desperate to make a movie with DC's top guy, despite fumble-itis on an unheard-of scale.
The previous director backed out because they didn't want to film in New York. Huh?!
But they remain awash with excitement, since "Catwoman" is out -- it's been in the works for FOURTEEN YEARS.
And I'm done. No more nickel-and-diming on this silly story from me. I'll believe that this thing might actually get done when I see footage of a dude in the suit.
