Warner have officially chosen their Director for their Superman reboot/Yawn. Zack Snyder [300/ Watchmen/ Legend of the Guardians/ Sucker Punch] Snyder had previously turned down the franchise but given that he is one of the Studios most high profile Genre Directors the turn around is understandable.
Snyder will direct from a script currently being penned by David S. Goyer [Batman Begins] based on a story conceived by Goyer and Christopher Nolan. Nolan, who took the Batman franchise to new heights and impressed audiences with Inception, is producing the film with his wife and partner Emma Thomas. Charles Roven [The Dark Knight] will also produce with Deborah Snyder, Zack’s wife and producing partner. Warner Bros. and DC Comics is targeting the film for a holiday 2012 release. Legendary Pictures’ Thomas Tull will executive produce. Snyder has stated:
“I can’t say why they came to me other than the fact that they know I have a fondness for the character and a real desire to understand him and present him to a new audience,” Synder said. “The challenge is huge but you know with Chris and Emma and Debbie I have a lot of people I can rely on. And Chris and David have given this the shape with a great story. It is a hard character to crack.
