Default Re: You're The Producer Of The Superman Reboot

More than Jor-el, for sure. Hanks doesn't pass me as the scientist type, really.Therefore, he is a much better fit for my depiction of Pa Kent and how he is portrayed in my script.

My Jor-el would be played by JOHNNY DEPP and he would be very different from Donner's and Abram's version. More in tune with all the eras of the comics, especially Man of Steel with bio-suit and all. The way I portay KRYPTON in my script is that it is TOTALLY different from Earth. An opposite of Smallville. The would be no clone thing, Zod is in there, Braniac too. I tried to mix everything, pre-crisis and post-crisis into one original take. Mine.

From my post it sounds that is going to be a very intimate and boring movie but thats just one side of it and I felt that they never got Smallville right in any movie or TV portrayal. We don't see the citzens, the places Clark hangs out, we don't see simple things like that. Not the way i've written.

That being said, the whole movie is epic in scale, with wars, aliens, robots, lots of fun and nice action sequences.

Hope to finish my script by mid June.

And as a spoiler, I will end my Superman producer storyline with the announcement of several actors who will audition for the role, and then I will leave you hanging. And for the purposes of this thread, the person who I will refer to as William Aries happens to be myself. Side note, William Aries has been an alias I have used since 4th grade. My middle name is William, and I'm an Aries. Give me a break, I was in 4th grade and it stuck. Anyway.......

MAY 19TH, 2009.

"Out of left field, exciting news broke today from Warner Brothers studio's. Writer/Producer Ronald D. Moore has been brought onboard the Superman franchise alongside William Aries, and together the two will reboot legendary superhero with an origin film focusing on the first appearences and adventures of the Man of Steel. Moore has previously reboot and retold the acclaimed Battlestar Galactica, and has also written and produced for Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Roswell, and Carnivale. Some still that despite the well deserved attention recieved by the J.J. Abrams reboot of that particular franchise, Moore was the greatest writer to come through, and his screenplay for Star Trek: First Contact helped that movie become one of Treks finest big screen adaptions. Joining Moore will be relative unknown William Aries, who is also attached to a big screen adaption of fellow DC comic book hero "The Flash", and what he calls two long overdue in-depth movies centered around World War 1 and the Korean War. It is believed that Moore and Aries will reach out and attempt to bring comic book and television writer Jeph Loeb on board to help with script duties.

We are going to start from scratch and do a retelling of Superman's origin, said Moore, who was followed up by Aries noting that it was time to bring Superman into the 21st century and leave behind the iconic Christopher Reeve Superman films once and for all. The Chris Reeve/Richard Donner film was iconic and important in the history of not only comic book films, but films of the fantasy and sci-fi genres, said Aries, but there are different variations and ways to tell a story about Superman, and as the old saying goes, no film is perfect. Since the Christopher Reeve era of Superman, there have been three television shows that have brought the Kryptonian survivor on to the small screen, and the underwhelming Superman Returns hit theaters in 2006. But, the new Superman creative team feels that all of these attempts have not done the character justice and have all simply missed the target.

As far as the storyline for this new chapter in the saga of Superman, a basic premise has been revealed. First and foremost, the villian. The sole villian of this film will be Braniac, a character many comic book fanboys have waited years to see on the big screen. And while there are several different comic book versions of th character, this Braniac will be rooted in Kryptonian origin. Going this route with Braniac, it just easily lends itself to an origin story were the focus is Superman,this allows for the focus to remain more so on Superman instead of branching off mid-story and doing yet another rushed Lex Luthor storyline, said Moore. The film will open on Krypton, and Braniac's part in the planets demise will be highlighted alongside the desperation of Superman's biological parents, Jor-El and Lara, to save there only son. Once on Earth, non-linear scenes focusing on the childhood of young Clark Kent, mixed with scenes of an early twenties Kent, will feature several key moments in the young man's life that will help make the choice to become Superman. In essence, the Clark Kent you will see in this film will be, at heart, a human being. And this human being just happens to have the powers of a God, something not many people can claim. Being an idealist, Clark will simply want to help, to make the world a better place, and in his mind, if the people of this world see a man with the powers of a God that is willing to help and not set on world control and domination, that can inspire. The story will highlight how Superman makes the world a better place. But it's not exactly cheers for big blue right out of the gate, like it was for the Chris Reeve Superman. How the hell would you feel if one day you turned on the news and some guy in a red cape showed up with the strength of 10,00 men and complete invulnerability, asked Aries. You would be scared to death. That is right, at first, the world will be afraid of Superman. His debut will be seen as something to good to be true, because in responce to his claims of wanting to help, the world will raise it's eyebrow and say, "bullshi*t", anyone with those abilities could only want to rule. But there will be one key person who believes in Superman from the get go, Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane, who will act as Superman's own personal publicist to get his message out. And then Braniac shows up, and suffice to say, feces hits the fan. Braniac's appearence will make the world believe that a true alien invasion has come, and one of Braniac's abilities in this film is shape-shifting, he can take on the look of anyone that he wants, Superman included. Although he has settled on the face of a person with whom he considers his father, someone close to Superman. But don't worry comic book fans, Moore and Aries have promised that Braniac will also be seen in his full on robotic appearence. And Lex Luthor fans, don't fret. LexCorp will be seen and mentioned several times during the course of the film, and two scenes during the film, one near the end, will set up a large portion of the already pre-planned sequel storyline.

One of the criticsm's of Brayn Singer during the production of Superman Returns was that the movie was based off of Superman: The Movie and thats it, that none of the other source material was even skimmed over, outside of one Action Comics cover. Aries wants to assure fans that won't be the case this time around. There are several different forms of Superman media that will aide us in the creation of this movie. A quick rundown includes the min-series Superman: Birthright which was written by Mark Waid, who has joined Aries on the "Flash" feature film project. Also, Superman: The Animated Series, Superman For All Seasons, John Byrne's Man of Steel, and All-Star Superman will all be drawn from for this film.

As far as picking a Director goes, well, were looking into several different scenario's, said Aries. It all kind of depends on who will really mesh with our vision and direction. There is really not much to comment on when it comes to a Director at this time. One thing is for sure, the budget for this film will be nowehre near that of Superman Returns reported $260 million. One of the most important points about this film is that we want it to be both critically acclaimed and financially successful, we want to do a character film and do it the right way, and after the drag that was Superman Returns, we feel that some movie goers might be afraid to return to theaters for this film. Hopefully, we can garner Dark Knight and Star Trek like buzz for this film, said Aries, but we are also prepared to go the Batman Begins route, and rebuild through a quality movie that returns credibility to the Superman franchise and firmly re-establishes the character. That is our main goal, re-establishing the character through a quality film. Another criticsm of the Bryan Singer made Superman Returns was a simple lack of action. And while this Superman reboot will be a character film first, the inclusion of a villian like Braniac will provide the chance to see Superman throw a punch or two. We have some cool, intense, and emotional action scenes in mind, not only for fight scenes between Superman and Braniac, but of Superman's heroic deeds around the world. And I think what will make the Superman vs. Braniac fight fun will be the fact that Braniac for one has all Kryptonian knowledge stored in his databanks, and has traveled the galaxy learning about and then destroying worlds, so there is bound to be some alien kung-fu tricks that Braniac has picked up along the way. And then there is Superman, who has never really worried about, or been in for that matter, a true fight. Why would Clark Kent take a karate or boxing class, asked Moore. So I think it will be interesting to watch Superman try and "tussle" with a technically sound an opponent thats technically sound in hand to hand combat.

In casting news, while little has been talked about, one thing is certain. Brandon Routh will not be reprise his role from Superman Returns, says Aries. When asked why, Aries simply responded, Routh cannot act. Look, Brandon Routh seems like a nice guy, he does have an uncanny resemblence to Christopher Reeve, and he does have some fan support, but we need an real actor for what we want to accomplish with the character, and there really isn't any faith in Brandon's acting ability. Aries also noted that a Chris Reeve clone will not be sought after and that he would prefer to move away from that look to allow a new actor to establish his own identity as the character. Aries and Moore both said that have a list of credentials that a certain actor must have to nab the role, and that unknown, known, or semi-known, the best man for the part would be cast. With the other roles, there is internal debate on a casting approach. Should we stack up on big names with instant face recognition, try and secure a cast of critically acclaimed actors, or find nice niche actors and actresses who fill there roles with the perfection were seeking, asked Aries. We will see soon. One rumor that has already spread implies that both Aries and Moore want to meet with actress Evangiline Lilly, who stars on the hit ABC show "Lost", for the role of Lois Lane. While some would ask, who doesn't want to play an iconic character like Lois Lane in a big screen blockbuster, Lilly seems to not have a taste for the hollywood limelight, and despite her beauty and obvious acting ability, has even made mention of not acting anymore once Lost is finished with it's sixth and final season. It seems that Aries and Moore will try and persuade Lilly into changing her tune and joining the project as report Lane. There is also a reported deal in place with Jason Isaacs to portray Lex Luthor, but not in this origin film. Rather, Isaacs would play Lex Luthor in the pre-planned sequel, or even multiple sequels. However, it is worth noting that Aries mentioned how perfect Jaquin Phoenix would be for the Luthor character if he gets his career back on track.

Well, thats all we have on this new Superman film for now, stay tuned.
JUNE 11TH, 2009 -

It is being reported that EDWARD ZWICK has been tapped to direct the new Superman film being written by Battlestar Galactica mastermind Ronald D. Moore, comic book and television writer Jeph Loeb, and newcomer William Aries. Zwick has directed Glory, Legends of the Fall, Blood Diamond, The Last Samurai, Defiance, and Courage Under Fire. More will come later.





In reality, I do think Ed Zwick would be a great choice for Director. I've always felt Zwick is one of the most underrated Directors in Hollywood, and all of his films feature excellent performances, passion, emotion, attention to detail, and send a social message of some kind. I think Zwick could portray Superman as a champion, and not just through scenes with Superman, but more so with Clark Kent. And Zwick is good with action scenes, which is key. I understand he has his detractors, but come on, Glory speaks for itself. Blood Diamond and Legends of the Fall were awesome, and despite it's historical inaccuracy, Defiance was a helluva flick. As a History undergrad, if I can overlook the historical in accuracy, others should. The Last Samurai needed some work, but was still enjoyable, same with Courage Under Fire. I just think the scripts needed more work in those cases, and with the kind of source material that could be set in front of Zwick, I don't think that problem would be had.

Plus, historical accuracy wouldn't really be an issue with Superman, just accuracy to the source material, and there's still a lot of wiggle room there.

Zwick has been on my fanboy list for some time. I was debating about who to go with for my post, and then I watched Blood Diamond and Defiance back to back. And I figured I'd run with it, I've never really came out and mentioned Zwick as a favorite of mine. If the script was great, the movie would be great. And Zwick is the kind of director would could bring in your Russell Crowe/Daniel Craig/Leo DiCaprio/Denzel Washington type actors which I think the next Superman needs a bit off.

Or, Superman needs Peter Jackson......

Yea hopefully who ever takes over the reign of superman for wb next time around can be a choice we can all get behind and they can get the right talent on board for the film. With the right director it could make it easier for big name folks for example willing to get on board.

The kind of Director we get will tell us alot about the actors that will be cast. With a guy like Zwick, or Peter Jackson for that matter, you know we would be getting actors who are both known and bring quality to a movie and there particular role. In other words, some serious credibility.

WB announces Superman is "Up in the Sky"
A spokesperson for WB has announced that a new take on the Superman franchise. Tentatively titled Superman: Up in the Sky. It is currently in scripting stages by Gabriel Ramirez, who made a pitch to the WB earlier this year. The spokesperson says the executives where so impressed they immediately put Ramirez with a team of writers so the film could be out the gate by 2012. No more details where revealed, even whether the movie is a reboot or a sequel, but that a full reveal was coming in November.
Hey, as long as I'm daydreaming, I might as well put myself in there, huh?

Could Blomkamp direct "Superman"?
The rumor mill is churning! The fine folks at IESB report that the new Superman film could be directed by none other than South African director Neil Blomkamp. Fresh off his newest film, District 9, Blomkamp has definitively proven to have a vision for storytelling.

Also making the rounds are rumors that the movie's plot is an all new origin story featuring multiple villains, included some rather obscure ones. Stay tuned.
Ain't no Kamp like the Blomkamp! This guy's gonna be huge someday!

Blomkamp confirmed as director for new Superman film, leads announced.
WB has dropped a bombshell on is unsuspecting journalists. They today confirmed the rumors that Neil Blomkamp(District 9) is directing the film "Superman: Up in the Sky", with Peter Jackson producing.They also revealed the new face for The Man of Steel. None other than G.I. Joe's Channing Tatum. Also joining in are Rosario Dawson as Lois Lane and Steward Head as Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, respectively.

The film is set to start filming next summer, and we are told it'll be an origin story where a freshman Superman starts his career by facing Lex Luthor, a high tech mafia, and a cabal of villains all intent on taking Superman down.
In my mind it works out, anyway

Meet the Rogues Gallery of Superman: Up in the Sky
My sources inside WB have it on good word what villains will be a thorn on Superman's side come next 2011 . But Don't let them know you heard it from me!

We already know Lex Luthor is in, but my sources say the film will also have Livewire, Manchester Black, Silver Banshee, and The Parasite, as well as Crime boss Bruno Manheim . Click on each name for more information.

I am kind of worried. Though. We don't want the movie to become encumbered with characters, like X3: The Last Stand. What do you think?
Putting on a group of smaller villains. They are essentially superpowered henchmen in the film.

Dawson talks S.U.I.T.S.

The Bloggers at Cinematical have a long interview with Rosario Dawson. Luckily for us, they remembered to ask about Superman: Up in the Sky. Can we get some quick quoted up in here?

"It's a really great story. Like the kind of story that you aren't used to seeing in movies today, with clear cut heroes and some really bad bad guys n there."

While many fans may have fallen of their chairs when they heard Rosario was playing Lois Lane, they should not expect the changes to be cosmetic only.

"I can confirm right now that at Lois Lane and Superman are a team. She's not just, you know, "Superman. Save Me!"(laughs). She's a hard ass journalist, kind of jaded by the big city and she helps Superman as much as he helps her. I had a lot of fun."
In my filmverse Lois should be more than some damsel in distress and love interest like in the last film. But to take that further she and Superman should be a team, with Lois investigating the cases and helping solve the problems.

Filming Begins on Superman: U.I.T.S.
Principal photography just begun on the new take on the Superman franchise. While a select few may be unhappy about that, the rest of the blogosphere is pretty damned hyped about it.

Superman: Up in the Sky stars Channing Tatum as Superman, Rosario Dawson as Lois Lane, Steward Head as Lex Luthor, James Gandolphini as Bruno Manheim,Sam Neil as Johnathan Kent, Camryn Manheim as Martha Kent, Laurence Fishbourne as John Henry Irons, John Oliver as Manchester Black, Tilda Swinton as Silver Banshee, Dennis Leary as The Parasite and Kevin McKidd as Jor El. Slated for release May 20, 2013, the film will retell Superman's Origin and his first arrival in Metropolis.

Jim Uhls to pen Superman reboot

October 21, 2009. After Batman, James Bond and Star Trek, Superman is the next big Hollywood franchise to get the reboot treatment. And for that, Warner Bros. have tapped Fight Club writer Jim Uhls to pen the screenplay for the upcoming comic book movie.

Uhls recently wrote the script for another comic book adaptation, the Johnny Depp starring vehicle Rex Mundi.

No director is attached to the project yet.
Well. He wrote frikkin' Fight Club!

I actually prefer Byrne's design for Krypton. Not the history but the design wich is very similar to the Kandor one Excel posted. I don't like the Naboo thing for Krypton. Krypton's way of life should be very different from Earth.



My Jor-el would be played by JOHNNY DEPP.

Ship would look like this:



Another idea for Krypton:

Default Re: You're The Producer Of The Superman Reboot

I would want to start from the basic template created by STAS/JL/JLU (my personal favorite - though I haven't read any comic books).

- Clark as "who I am" and Superman as "what I can do" (though I'd still want to see Clark as the unassuming mild-mannered everyman type to contrast with the Superman confidence)
- Lois as a spunky, sassy, & experienced reporter
- Perry as a gruff yet easygoing EIC
- Jimmy as a generally mild-mannered "kid" hoping for a break
- Luthor as the owner of LexCorp (and possibly genius/scientist) who sees Superman as his enemy because he's a variable in the city that Luthor feels he controls
- Pa and Ma Kent as Midwestern-type "everyparents"
- possible villains for a 1st movie: Metallo, Parasite, Bizarro, or Brainiac

I'd want to keep budget realistic with a higher percentage going to practical & visual effects and a lower percentage going to the cast, so as few A-listers as possible. Highest profile actors going to roles: Lois, Perry, Luthor, or Pa & Ma Kent.

Director: unknown, but someone who knows how to balance adventure/action with some drama/suspense and a little comedy. Not that I'm specifically for these directors but these movies have the type of atmosphere I'd target: The Mummy, The Mask of Zorro, TMNT, The Incredibles.

Composer: wouldn't be too hard to fill this role. John Williams' score is legendary but we don't need Williams himself to continue the legacy, and STAS proved to me an alternate theme can be just as (or even more) effective, so no big names needed either. I'm not very familiar with composers, the only name that comes to mind right away is James Newton-Howard who can pull off almost anything.

Cinematography: in terms of a "look" to the movie, bright colors to inspire hope and prosperity. No obviously hued or tinted look like other comic-book movies TDK, X-Men, etc. Palette closest to maybe something around Iron Man or Fantastic Four (Spider-Man felt too bright).

Costumes: the Superman suit itself should be a contemporary design - still traditional, but with sleek lines and accented with higher color contrast, like the STAS suit. All other clothing should look "next-century" to make the movie look a little bit post-modern but not too far it's unrelatable. Metropolis should look like the "city of tomorrow" and the people in it should look like the "people of tomorrow." No throwbacks to previous eras like the 30s or 50s.

Metropolis: same design as in STAS. A true "city of tomorrow" with advanced technology, ongoing scientific research & technological developments. A city that might conceivably create dangers like aggressive robots or exo-suits. Clean-looking streets, but beneath the surface, there are organized crime rings instead of individual thugs looking for a casual mugging.

Clark/Superman: Henry Cavill or equivalent. Minimum 6'1" height, broad-shouldered, intense eyes, square chin. Mid or late 20s. No "soft" facial features. Frame that can hide behind a business suit. Open a nationwide casting call for unknowns.

Lois: Average-height woman (minimum height 5'4"), slender-to-average figure. Charismatic, spunky, sense of humor, but also fiercely independent and intensely curious. Also very intelligent. Types: Elizabeth Banks, Erica Durance, Teri Hatcher (as in her Lois & Clark days). Another nationwide casting call. Screentest chemistry with Clark/Superman actor. If no chemistry, find next candidate.

Perry: older man with "wisdom beyond his years". Gruff but with a heart of gold who wants his staff to be on-time and on-call. (No casting ideas come to mind.)

Jimmy: college-age kid, possibly with ruddy good looks and a likeable quality. Generally mild-mannered with a propensity to use humor to get self through situations. Height between 5'8" and 6'.

Luthor: self-confident businessman type with a business conglomerate to his name, LexCorp. Imposing, manipulative figure with a sense of pride and arrogance. A man willing to do whatever it takes to win the edge in business. Character actor required for this role (no names come to mind).

Pa & Ma Kent: All-American Midwest-style Dennis Quaid type with Laura Dern type. 'Nuff said. (whoever originally came up with them is brilliant!)

Villain: strong character able to take Superman on in a hand-to-hand fight. Property damage to ensue in fight, and villain must pose credible threat to Superman's life. Physically-fit character actor required for role. (I would prefer Metallo or Parasite for a 1st movie.)

Jor-El & Lara: Greek god-style characters and must have physical features to match. Must physically resemble the Superman actor. Jim Caviezel type with Lena Headey type.

Basic plot of story: an established Superman has been keeping Metropolis crime-free during the day, but unknown to him, sinister forces plan his destruction by night (possibly by Luthor). Superman begins to find evidence of a plot against him, and must use his Clark persona to investigate further. Lois also discovers the story and tries to out-scoop Clark. Later, he must become Superman to find and defeat the villain. (With sub-plots of someone not Lois in danger and the city being threatened.)

I dont like the birthing matrix thing. I prefer that Kal-el be around 1 yr old or so before he's sent to Earth. The B.M. is kinda creepy.
Everything else is great tho.

Maybe not a Birthing Matrix but somehow of a induced sleep in the water with minerals and all.

I love the look of Metropolis. Not entirely sure about the look of Krypton, seems a tad inconsistent, but I did enjoy the Italian inspired architecture from Star Wars as a potential look for Krypton. Would definitely be different.

Default Part 1: Reboot Announcement

Reboot Announcement:
Quote:
DC COMICS WRITER TO PEN 'SUPERMAN' REBOOT - 6/1/09 HOLLYWOOD, CA

Warner Brothers Studios announced formally today that it will be taking a new direction with what it plans to be a triumphant return of one of it's most iconic franchises and most well known character. Warner Bros. Pictures Group President Jeff Robinov stated that the new film will be written by Geoff Johns, critically acclaimed writer for DC Comics and one of the hottest writers in the comic world today. His most recent work was the Green Lantern and Flash series which rejuvenated the characters of Hal Jordan and Barry Allen and successfully brought them back into the spotlight in the DC Universe. "Geoff's storytelling ability is unlike anyone else in the comic book world today," said Robinov. "He has this innate ability to take classic story from the Silver Age of the 50s and 60s and modernize them for audiences of all ages. We thought who better to write a comic book movie than a comic book writer. Johns is currently hard at work on the story which will be an epic tale. "It has to be big because it doesn't get any bigger than Superman!" Johns said, knowing the task at hand was going to be his biggest to date. He is currently working on a new origin story which is meant to be the definitive story for Superman in the DC Universe entitled "Superman: Secret Origin." Will elements of the book find it's way into the movie? "I can't say anything yet, but it's going to be a unique experience for the viewers and the characters themselves as I'm going to try and give audiences both a Superman they've never seen before but also one they have been longing to see." Johns will not be alone in this project as artist Alex Ross has been personally requested by Johns to assist him in the project to help him design the world that he is creating. Johns thought Alex's realistic work and art style could "help bring the characters to life so that they can easily translate to the screen but still have a bigger than life feel to them." So far script details are very top secret but the project itself is certainly up, up, and away. More details will come as this exclusive story develops.
