Bryan Singer To Direct 'Superman Returns 2'

bryan singerBryan Singer is to return to direct the sequel to Superman Returns, according to Variety.

Movie will be intended for release in summer 2009, although the studio stressed that there's not even a script or budget yet.

Sequel is apparently at the very beginning of the development process and, as with any other project, there are any number of factors that must be addressed before it is greenlit.

Critically, "Superman Returns" was disparaged for lacking in action. Singer has said he would address this concern in the follow-up.

In terms of casting, Warners has an option on "Superman Returns" star Brandon Routh.
