Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky is the latest name being mentioned as a contender to direct the upcoming Superman reboot, according to The Los Angeles Times.
Darren Aronofsky could direct Superman for Warner Bros.
We reported last week that directors Zack Snyder, Tony Scott, Matt Reeves, Jonathan Liebesman and Duncan Jones were at the top of Warner Bros.' wish list of directors. Producers Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas are overseeing the project for the studio, and our earlier report indicated that the decision on a director will happen in the next few weeks.
The Los Angeles Times also noted that Darren Aronofsky has a history of turning down high-profile studio project so he can hang onto more creative control. However, with Christopher Nolan (who started with a similar indie background) producing, this project could be a good fit for both Darren Aronofsky and the Man of Steel.
We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further news regarding Superman as soon as it becomes available.
Man of Steel was released June 14th, 2013 and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Russell Crowe, Antje Traue, Harry Lennix, Richard Schiff. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.
