§ Tremendous, tremendous excitement on the movie rumor circuit tonight, as the Wachowskis seem to be back in play! And maybe on…SUPERMAN!
Whoa, whoa, let’s just take a second to soak all of this in. A source wrote in to Ain’t It Cool News saying that he was watching a TV show in Germany where V for Vendetta and Ninja Assassin director James McTeigue was being interviewed. McTeigue said that due to the shake up of projects at Warner Brothers (i.e. they put all DC Comics movies on hold until they could figure out a new strategy), the Wachowskis were off of their latest superhero project called Plastic Man. Instead, they were approached by WB execs to reboot the Superman franchise as a trilogy and they’re currently weighing their options before making a decision.
More in the link on Plastic Man, Supes, and so on. Personally, having been one of the SPEED RACER lovers out there, I think a Wachowski take on PLASTIC MAN would have been fun as hell, but maybe they can put the “super” back in Superman.
§ Meanwhile, John Malkovich has joined the cast of JONAH HEX:
Malkovich will play Turnbull, a wealthy Southern plantation owner whose son is killed by Union soldiers during the Civil War.
