Mark Millar Eyes The Man Of Steel

Seems someone is getting Frank Miller syndrome, Mark Millar (No Relation) is eyeing up to reinvent Superman for the 21st century (you mean this) while talking to the Daily Record he re expressed his interest into re making Superman for a 2011 and claimed he has a producer and director lined up saying:
Since I was a kid I've always wanted to reinvent Superman for the 21st century."I've been planning this my entire life. I've got my director and producer set up, and it'll be 2011. This is how far ahead you have to think."The Superman brand is toxic after that last movie lost $200 million, but in 2011 we're hoping to restart it."Sadly I can't say who the director is, but we may make it official by Christmas."But fingers crossed it could work out, that would be my lifetime's dream.
Also adding more weight talking on his messages board saying
That Superman news is interesting, isn't it? In the interests of clarity (because I'm sure this will be picked up somewhere) a very well known American action director heard about my love of Superman, approached my and asked me to team up with he and his producer to make a pitch for this. We've been talking for several weeks now and, if this is going to happen, we'll know by Christmas. He has huge pull at WB so fingers crossed. But this is nothing more than a huge US name pulling me into his fold and making me part of a package.
Well not too sure he told Bryan Singer about this as he seems to be moving ahead with a sequel to Superman Returns. Superman was in development hell and he looked never to fly on the sliver screen so you have to give Singer credit for getting him out, plus this is the man who made X-men 2 a far superior film to its predecessor I would not count out Singer to make the Man Of Steel incredible.
