Variety reports that Bryan Singer will reteam with his The Usual Suspects screenwriter Chris McQuarrie on an original thriller for United Artists toppers Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner. The movie is expected to push the Superman Returns follow-up back:
The film will delay Warner Bros.’ hope of mounting a sequel to “Superman Returns” in the near future. Singer’s Bad Hat Harry banner has an overall deal at WB, where he is developing several films that include that sequel and the Harvey Milk biopic “The Mayor of Castro Street.” He also is directing “Football Wives,” a series pilot for ABC and ABC TV Studio. The new project begins production this summer.
