Superman Movie: 'Still very uncertain'.

"I think they want to be very respectful of the crown jewel of, you know, all their franchises".- McG on the current status of the new Superman movie. scored some provocative comments from Director McG regarding what's going on with a new Superman movie.

"During a press conference for the upcoming Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle DVD, director McG gave an update on the new Superman movie in development at Warner Bros.

"I'm a big fan of 'Superman,' and you know, I'm discussing it with Warner Brothers, but it's still very uncertain," he said. "It's a big project and they're being very cautious, and I'm being very cautious and it's yet to be seen if it's in the cards."

McG also addressed the issue of why Superman has had so many false starts. "I think they want to be very respectful of the crown jewel of, you know, all their franchises," he added about the studio. "It's a great character. And I think everybody who would ever be a part of that type of picture wants to get it done properly. So I don't think they're in any rush to make that picture, and I think their focus is on doing it right."

[Editors comment: Yeah, right. They're being real "respectful" of the character when they ask Nicholas Cage to play the role or when they hire Tim Burton (great director, but wrong choice) to adapt, or allow Jon Peters to push merchanside pitches to the screenwriters. If they really want to do this film right, a great first step would be to remove any trace of McG from it.]

Asked what he will be working on next, McG said, "Well I mean I'm circling a couple pictures, and I'm very much considering directing live theater, because I want to improve as a director and become a better and better storyteller, and I'm thinking about going to London to direct theater."

"No matter what I do I promise you that the next project will have a very, very purposeful photographic palette".
