News Superman Production Details?

‘Robert’ alerted us that has posted some possible details on the Superman production. Here’s a clip…

No start date has been set but they are looking to begin pre-production in 3 months. The majority of shooting will be done in Sydney (doubling for Metropolis) and the Fox Studios. Expect work to be done in the US as well, we’ve already seen location shots for a possible Smallville shoot in Washington. Fenway Park may also host a scene from the film. Also, no costume design has been finalised yet, so plenty of time to avoid another Catwoman!

January 2005 is looking like a strong possibility for the start of principal photography; with pre-production taking place throughout 2004. The script is currently undergoing re-writes by McG and JJ Abrams (who talked to Sci Fi Wire about the movie recently).

Despite what the AFC say, McG is attached to Superman. WB just haven’t gone through official channels yet to confirm it. I think it’s safe to assume he will direct this movie. Directors usually sign on to a project when it moves from development to pre-production. Every insider S-V talks to refers to it as “McG’s Superman”. Robert asked his reps if he’d dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s yet, “No comment at this point”. He went on to say, “I’m sure they’ll be an announcement soon.”
