Kal-El: Genesis of Superman?

"...And the feel that the production team are going for in terms of look is somewhere between a 30's Gangster epic and anyone of the last four Star Tek movies."
SUPERHERO HYPE! recently scored some interesting, if not true, information about new developments on the set of Superman 5 or Superman: Last Son of Krypton or Kal-El: Genesis of Superman or whatever Warner Brothers is calling it these days:

"As set building begins at Burbank, a few things to report from here at the Warners lot about Director Joseph McGinty Nichol's forthcoming Superman movie for producer Jon Peters. Firstly JJ Abrams third draft script is being heavily operated on by writing partners S.S. Wilson and Brent Maddock, mutual friends of McG and Jon Peters. The working title (which could change), is Kal-El : Genesis of Superman The plan is to take the screenplay into a gritty, Daredevil teritory with the Superman character with alot of the Star Trek inspired influences of Abrams scripts still in place. Secondly, and honestly, i know alot of these rumours fly around (no pun), Brendan Fraser is back in the running to play the Man of Steel, and has been working closely, before anything has been signed, with Wilson, Maddock and McG, to fashion a script around his intended portrayal of Superman. If Fraser signs on, he will get $25million to play Superman, but Warners are still considering a cheaper, unknown actor whose wage wont cut a wedge out of the films budget. Required viewing for the entire production team, are episodes of the Max Fleischer cartoon wich are being handed out by Warners to give an idea of the feel of the movie. And the feel that the production team are going for in terms of look is somewhere between a 30's Gangster epic and anyone of the last four Star Trek movies."
