Numerous people wrote in (thanks Scott and “Garth Ranzz”) what the trades (like Hollywood Reporter and Moviehole reports that Warner Brothers president and chief operating officer Alan Horn met “X-Men” director Bryan Singer over dinner to talk about stepping in. “Our scooper claims that Singer has not said yes … but is considering it. How such a move will affect Singer’s other projects currently in the works — including ‘X-Men 3’ and ‘Logan’s Run’ — remains to be seen. Superman is slated to begin filming this fall in Australia.”
Speaking of Singer’s schedule, according to Superhero Hype, Alan Cummings was on the talk show The Graham Norton Effect, where he said he’ll be back in Vancouver during spring of 2005 to film the mutant-themed sequel. Co-star Rebecca Romijn-Stamos backed this up when she spoke to the Daily Telegraph, saying “I know because I signed on for a third, beginning in May, is what I heard.”
Interested in Sharon Stone’s character in the Halle Berry-fueled feline flick? The veteran actress spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the part. “Laura is a supermodel who possesses the ability to do great martial arts, great fighting and has jujitsu-like skills,” Sharon says tongue-in-cheek, “because you know, naturally, she would know all those things and be a great fighter with superhuman strength.”
Also, Comics Continuum has tons of photos from the movie, and a new quote from Berry about the character. “She’s who every woman wants to be and every man would like to be with,” Berry said. “In many ways cats embody the true psyche of women — cats are very elusive, and you have to work to gain their trust and their respect. It’s not something that’s given very freely. I’ve heard it said that dogs have masters, but cats have servants. And it’s true!”
CBR head honcho Jonah Weiland poked around at the Internet Movie Database page for the Frank Miller adaptation, and found Zack Snyder (“Dawn of the Dead”) was attached as director. This should be taken with a grain of salt, as IMDB also originally listed ex-hobbit Sean Astin as the director for “Fantastic Four.”
How about Joker: Year One? Moviehole interviewed actor Lachy Hulme, who says his name is being tossed around for a young Joker in the “Batman Begins” sequel. “I got the heads up from my LA manager that WB have been kicking my pitiful name around for the Joker role in the ‘Begins’ sequel. It is a role that I would desperately love, but it’s way too early for internet rumours to be flying,” he says.
Meanwhile, Superhero Hype has a report from a Chicago casting call, with photos.
