Nolan Seeks Director for SUPERMAN

Last Friday I mentioned that there still wasn't anything solid to report on the development of the big screen Superman reboot that Chris Nolan has been shepherding.  While there's still nothing solid to report as yet, we do have some indications of who producer Nolan and screenwriter David Goyer are potentially zeroing in on to helm the project.

As Mike Fleming at Deadline reveals, they've begun meeting with a handful of directors (including, but not limited to, Tony Scott and Watchmen's Zack Snyder), with a decision likely coming soon on who will take the reins for the Christmas 2012 release.  I can't say I'm blown away by any of the choices listed thus far, but then I'm not entirely sure who I'd want to direct the movie aside from Nolan himself.

And speaking of Superman flicks, in that same post I also mentioned the upcoming All-Star Superman animated feature that's due out next spring, and here's the trailer for the project courtesy of MTV:





Hmm.  Not bad.
