Singer Quits Superman Reboot, Wachowski's In?

AICN has received word from one of their reliable sources stating that Bryan Singer has turned down the offer to (again) reboot the Superman film franchise and has walked away from the film to make the long planned Logan's Run leaving Warner Bros. to approach the Wachowski brothers to direct a rebooted Superman trilogy.
James McTeigue confirmed that Plastic Man was the next project in the pipeline for the Wachowski's and he had been signed on to provide Second Unit support. Says the movie has been delayed indefinitely due to a major shake up of projects at WB.

Bryan Singer has refused to undertake a re-boot of the Superman franchise and has left the Executives at WB with no choice but to take a fresh creative direction.

He stated the Wachowski Brothers had been approached to re-boot the franchise as a trilogy and they are currently reviewing their options as it's like being asked to take the final play in a superbowl final. Says if they do agree, he will likely either succumb to providing second unit support on the movie or will champion the directorship of Plastic Man - He started to giggle as he stated it's like a young child for the Brothers and they wont give that up easily.

Says, the very thought of the brothers making a Superman movie is unbelievable as they have grown up in the world of comic books and they would be ideal for the project.

Stated that Bryan Singer is looking to move on to Logan's Run a movie to be produced by Joel Silver.
