Singer's Diary

Reading Variety, it looks to me like Brian Singer's next couple of years worth of moviemaking are already shaping up quite nicely.

We know Superman's coming back, and there was already some news of The Mayor of Castro Street, his proposed Harvey Milk biopic. Now it looks like Milk will come before Kal-El, but neither of them before Singer has finished producing Mike Dougherty's Trick'r Treat. According to the Variety piece, Singer is both 'fiercely loyal to those close to him', and somewhat hands on as a producer, and will be on Dougherty's set 24/7.

That's at least 6/7 more than Dougherty, and most likely 24/1 on Sundays (if you catch my drift).

If you don't know about Harvey Milk and 'The White Night Riots', then don't forget, Wikipedia is your friend. Here's a brief excerpt of the Harvey Milk entry as it stands:

Harvey Bernard Milk (May 22, 1930November 27, 1978) an American politician and gay rights activist, was the first openly gay city supervisor of San Francisco, California. He and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated in 1978. His assassin, Dan White, was sentenced to only seven years in prison. Outrage over the verdict led to widespread rioting in San Francisco by enraged homosexuals and others. Milk is seen by some to be a martyr to the LGBT community.
