McG talks about Superman
During a press conference for the upcoming Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle DVD, director McG gave an update on the new Superman movie in development at Warner Bros.
"I'm a big fan of 'Superman,' and you know, I'm discussing it with Warner Brothers, but it's still very uncertain," he said. "It's a big project and they're being very cautious, and I'm being very cautious and it's yet to be seen if it's in the cards."
McG also addressed the issue of why Superman has had so many false starts. "I think they want to be very respectful of the crown jewel of, you know, all their franchises," he added about the studio. "It's a great character. And I think everybody who would ever be a part of that type of picture wants to get it done properly. So I don't think they're in any rush to make that picture, and I think their focus is on doing it right."
Asked what he will be working on next, McG said, "Well I mean I'm circling a couple pictures, and I'm very much considering directing live theater, because I want to improve as a director and become a better and better storyteller, and I'm thinking about going to London to direct theater."
"No matter what I do I promise you that the next project will have a very, very purposeful photographic palette".
