It's been a couple of weeks since the news broke that Christopher Nolan had been tasked by Warner Bros with overseeing their latest reboot of Superman, as well as the third Batman movie. But the British director has kept silent on the matter - until now.
The LA Times sat down with Nolan and tried to prise as much Superman and Batman information out of him as they possibly could. Which, true to form for the tight-lipped director, wasn't very much. But it's a start.
On his attraction to the Superman project, Nolan confesses that his interest in the project - which he will produce - was sparked when David S. Goyer pitched a blue-sky idea while they were brainstorming the next Batman movie. 'He basically told me, 'I have this thought about how you would approach Superman,' Nolan tells the LA Times. 'I immediately got it, loved it and thought: that is a way of approaching the story I've never seen before that makes it incredibly exciting. I wanted to get Emma [Thomas, Nolan's wife and fellow producer] and I involved in shepherding the project right away and getting it to the studio and getting it going in an exciting way.'
Of course, Nolan won't divulge details of the movie, which Goyer is currently writing for an as-yet unconfirmed director. But he sounds charged by the possibilities inherent in the Man Of Steel's story. 'It's very exciting, we have a fantastic story,' he adds. 'And we feel we can do it right. We know the milieu, if you will, we know the genre and how to get it done right.'
