NEWS: Singer's Next Project Is...?

There has been little news to report this weekend, but there is one story that I think has gone under reported...

EW reports...

After the success of Taken and Gran Torino, Hollywood has been on a vigilante kick. And right now, Bryan Singer (along with studio execs all over town) has been seriously considering getting his revenge on with The Prisoners, a much-sought-after thriller script to which Mark Wahlberg is attached to star as a Boston dad who takes the law into his own hands when his young daughter is kidnapped. The screenplay, which has been compared to The Silence of the Lambs and Seven, has been buzzed about as a calling card for its unknown writer, Aaron Guzikowski, and as a rare project targeted at adult audiences but with real commercial potential. When asked whether The Prisoners will be his next movie, Singer told EW: "I don't know yet. But I'm definitely intrigued. It's a great script. And I'd love to work with Mark."

Besides the horribly cliche frame of Silence of the Lambs and Se7en, the big news may not have to do with what he is doing, but what he ISN'T instead.

About 3 months ago, the working title for the Superman Returns sequel was released via the Warner Brothers/Legendary Pictures website. Superman Unleashed was called a sequel, and it was assumed that Singer would come back. However, along with Joel Silver's Logan's Run and Technolody vs. Horse, two films he's also allegedly attatched to, it looks like Singer may not end up getting to it.

So here's the deal. Who SHOULD take the helm of the Superman franchise? Should it be rebooted or just have a sequel? What do you think of the franchise/Superman Returns?

Go see something good!
