New Superman Movie to Shoot in Vancouver?

While this is not confirmed, The Globe and Mail is reporting that the Zack Snyder-directed Superman movie will be filmed in Vancouver:

“[Zack Snyder’s] next feature’s coming here,” said Peter Leitch, chair of the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of BC and president of North Shore Studios and Mammoth Studios.

Leitch would not name Superman: Man of Steel as the film in question, but a source has confirmed that the next film in the Superman franchise will be shot in Vancouver next year, with production likely beginning in the summer.

Warner Bros. Pictures is planning a December 2012 release for the film, for which no cast has been announced yet. David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan wrote the script.
