It’s not going to happen.
Superstar comic book writer Mark Millar has made a case that he’ll reboot the Superman film franchise for free.
It’s 8.58am right now, my guys at CAA get into the office in about seven hours and my call will be waiting for them to talk about this. I want to revamp Superman like Hillary wants thin ankles. Revamping this franchise is what I as given fingers for and so, invited or not, I’m putting my plan together now. I’ve been asked to work on half a dozen screenplays lately, but this is the only one I have ever truly wanted.
As most here know, I have literally hundreds of pages of notes and sketches just waiting for this opportunity. This would be my dream gig and, as a fan, I know exactly what this project needs to work. This has to be Superman for the 21st Century, keeping everything we adore, but starting from scratch and making the kids love it as much as the 30-somethings. I would honestly write this thing for free.
Anyway, my treatment is being polished as we type. Wish me luck. I want to do that Superman movie we all want to see.
Give the man a typewriter. Millar knows comics, and he wants the job, and he’s got the right idea with “making the kids love it as much as the 30-somethings.”
Come on, Warner Bros.
Listen to reason.
The time to move on without Bryan Singer is now.
If Mark Millar will write it for free, I’ll pay you to let me write it.
Because I’ve got an idea that’ll knock your socks off.
But you’d probably better let Mark Millar do it.
