Superman Returns Sequel Starting Late 2007?

May 16, 2006

In an article published by Variety, the trade magazine mentions that Superman Returns director Bryan Singer might not want to take on both the sequel and a remake of "Logan's Run."

Bryan Singer may not direct the remake of "Logan's Run" after all.

Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver want to start lensing the sci-fi pic this fall, which would mean Singer might end up shooting two tentpoles -- "Logan's" and a "Superman Returns" sequel -- back-to-back.

No one begrudges Singer for seeking a break from big-budget projects, although the filmmaker probably won't make an official decision either way about "Logan's Run" until "Superman Returns" bows in July.

Assuming Singer's take on the Caped Crusader is a crowd-pleaser, Warners plans to start shooting the sequel in the later part of 2007, with Singer again at the helm.

Even if he doesn't direct "Logan's Run," Singer is still likely to play some sort of role and perhaps take a producer's credit. Silver has been developing the project for some time now, with input from Singer.

There's been buzz that "V For Vendetta" director James McTeigue might step in and helm "Logan's Run," but at this point it's just rumor.

If they start shooting the sequel next year, maybe it'll be released sometime in 2008 instead of 2009.
"Caped Crusader"? I didn't know Singer was making a Batman movie! lol

No , i still think that the sequel will be released in 2009.
The article clearly says that shooting will start late 2007. If they've gonna release the movie 2008 , ithat would results in a cramped shooting schedule and a even tighter post. prod. schedule.
No way that's gonna happen ;)

I think that WB have had a relative rough time with superman returns , in terms of making it.
I still think that the schedule itslf was extremely tight and with the VFX delivered at the last moment ( which probably explains why there are so few trailers and only now marketing is really beginning with tv spots and such ).
For the sequel , WB and Singer want to take their time . To have a more relaxed shooting and a more relaxed post. prod. Shooting in late 2007 and then afterwards working a year long on the VFX , music, score, sound etc.
In 2008 as we all know, will be BB2 premiere.

I know only one thing, SR2 will be released only in 2009.

So Singer is going to direct sequels? GREAT!
We don't even know if there will be a SR2 yet the first has to do well before anything is greenlighted.
