ReUnited Artists

The Cruise/Wagner UA have greenlit their sophomore effort, and it looks like a doozy. As yet untitled, the film is a World War 2 thriller with a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie - and is to be directed by Brian Singer. Round up The Usual Suspects indeed.

Apparently, Singer and McQuarrie went directly to Cruise and Wagner who stumped up the bucks without missing a heartbeat. Wise.

Of course, this stalls Singer's Harvey Milk biopic
The Mayor of Castro Street, as well as his Superman Returns sequel - perhaps even killing it outright. Only time will tell, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Warners appoint a different director to Superman now.

Football Wives pilot is well underway, however, and should air later this year.

Good luck to Singer and all that, but anyone taking on the Superman II gig should lay off the whole Americana angle, and just go for the gonzo Sci-Fi headrush. And first thing they should do is invite Grant Morrison, Elliott S! Maggin, and Mark Millar out for a nice meal and a brainstorming session.
