From what I understand, Singer is a multi tasker and works on several projects at once. Note that the article still refers to him as developing the SR sequel. Will the sequel get pushed back a bit? Probably. But doing another project in between isn't out of the ordinary. Look at Christopher Nolan, making The Prestige between BB and The Dark Knight. Or Steven Spielberg, a guy who can make a release for two films in a single year.

If you can't attack SR without attacking Bryan Singer's sexuality, then just keep your thoughts to yourself.

I don't think it's delayed one bit. It's quite conceiveable for Singer to work on both projects at the same time....Flawless just had a great example with Nolan work on the Prestige and right into The Dark Knight.

Singer's probably got a team working exclusively on the Returns sequel while he works on his new thriller. Remember, Singer was also busy executive producing House while very deep into production on Returns.

Everyone relax....

Also, Singer was also working on Logan's Run during Returns production. Clearly, the guy loves to multi-task....

It's not that big a deal. More than likely, this new film of his, he's been working on for a while now....
It took Singer two years to make Superman Returns. Why would he make the sequel in less than a year? His new movie just got greenlit. By the time it is cast and sets are build, etc, he won't start shooting till late 2007.

And, comparing Singer to Nolan is nonsense. You can't compare directing a Batman movie to directing a Superman movie. Nolan can make TDK in a year. Singer can't make Superman that quickly. Especially with all the CGI shots and s--t.

Logan's Run is in development hell. So, why even bother bringing it up.

Because, he was still working on it while shooting Returns. It's relevant to this discussion. It just clearly shows that Singer, like alot of directors, like to multi-task on a number of projects at one time.

This news does not state that he is off the sequel...especially with Routh saying he's talked to Singer about what's going on with the sequel recently.

Again, everyone relax....

Ok, lets say the SR sequel is delayed. If WB was so gung ho about a Supes sequel why would they allow it to be delayed so that Singer can make a film for another studio?

Batman Begins had about the same amount of production time as Superman Returns. There's only about 6-8 months of actual filming. The rest goes towards pre-production and post-production.

My thinking is that Singer just wants to do a non-superhero film before diving in headfirst for SR2. Think about it. He's been working on nothing but comic book movies for seven years. X-men, X2, worked on X3 before dropping out and finally SR. His last non-superhero movie was Apt Pupil and that was a while ago.

Again, he's not off it. He'll be working on a number of projects while shooting this new film....and more than likely one of them will be the Returns sequel.

Yeah I say Delay Superman and do the JLA movie! As for Singer getting replaced? I'm thinking yeah. With SR underperforming I said this and I hope so. As for who to replace Singer? I don't know yet, but i hope he doesn't come back.

It took Singer two years to find actors to play Superman, Lex, Lois, Perry, Jimmy, Ma, Richard and Jason, design sets, costumes, wigs, NKI all that stuff's out of the way.

Not really, If Singer starts filming at the end of 07 he can finish at the beggining of 09. Besides, if it's anything like Suspects, it will be a pretty small film.

Calling Kevin Spacey is exactly the same as caling Bale. He was pretty much the favourite from the start.

False Alarm

Quote:
False Statement in Variety Report on Singer's Next Film

Variety reports that United Artists has green-lit Bryan Singer's next movie, in which he will team up once again with "The Usual Suspects" screenwriter Chris McQuarrie. The report also claims that the World War II film will "delay Warner Bros.' hope of mounting a sequel to Superman Returns in the near future."
The Superman Homepage has found out that this claim is false, with Warner Bros. and Bryan Singer reportedly on track to start filming the sequel to "Superman Returns" around March of 2008 as previously planned.

Hmmm...interesting. It's not like Variety is 100% accurate; it wouldn't be the first time they've been given false information.

How do you know? The Variety article says shooting will commence in the summer, not the fall.

Chris Nolan was hired as director of Batman Begins in the spring of 2003. The film was released in June of 2005. Two years. More than that, actually. So your point?

And btw, Singer was developing Logan's Run concurrently with developing Superman Returns and directing and producing the pilot episode of House. The dude can multitask. Let him do his job.

It's not false, it was a logic speculation
But it's not true. The speculations will end soon. I expect an official announcement about the sequel at the ShoWest or at least during the summer.

IMO we'll know very soon the truth. If they want to do the sequel in the 2009 they have to announce it now.

Hopefully not! Just because you didn't like SR doesn't mean others are as like minded as you. I thought SR was awesome, can't wait for the sequel!

I hated Superman Returns but to say you want the sequel cancelled is silly. I want a sequel really bad because I am hoping Singer finally makes his OWN Superman movie and not a piece of **** Superdad Donner homage. Come on Singer you know what to do just ****ing do it.

Thank god this news is false, this is my most anticipated movie at the moment and we already have to wait over 2 years for this, waiting longer for some other movie would have severly pissed me off.

Anyway Mcquarrie is a director now isnt he? The Way Of The Gun was excellent and i'd be surprised if he just went back to writing.

Well, the fact that the sequel is delayed is false apparently , but the Singer/Mc Quarrie thriller is going ahead (i liked too the Way of the gun . but it was not a hit if i remember well . Plus maybe liked mc Quarrie wanted to write anew .. and i say that he is right to do it again! lol

Seriously good news all around now when one think about it: Singer Superman sequel , a new thriller from the team of Usual Suspect

There seems to be a lot of confusion over this,i'll wait till WB actually makes a statement one way or another.
