Bryan Singer’s Excalibur Is No More

Posted on 17 October 2011 by Christian

The X-Men director’s planned remake of John Boorman’s take on Arthurian legend has been shelved. Singer speaks to SFX all about it and reveals that plans for his Battlestar Galactica movie are still on.

As you may or may not know, Bryan Singer was developing a take on the Excalibur legend which was said to be a loose remake of the 1981 John Boorman movie of the same name. That film is considered a classic by many and while I am a fan of it there is no doubt that it has not aged well. So I was looking forward to seeing a new version of the story. Unfortunately it won’t be happening, at least not in the foreseeable future and not with Warner Bros and not with Bryan Singer at the helm. The director spoke to SFX at their annual Sitges Film Festival..

Bryan Singer Praises Superman Reboot & Zack Snyder’s Directorship!

Posted on 08 November 2010 by Christian

Bryan Singer, director of Superman’s last return, shares his opinion on Warner Bros. doing the reboot, for the The Man of Steel with Zack Snyder on board to direct.

While casting rumors have begun, according to The Geek Files, Bryan Singer, director of the iconic hero’s last movie appearance in Superman Returns, recently shared his “honest” thoughts on Warner Bros. rebooting The Man of Steel. And with certainty of more reboots to come, in his own way, Singer also praises the forthcoming film’s director, Zack Snyder.

“At the time I left, it would be more odd than it is now. Because it’s been four years, my brain is so occupied. I’m sort of like a tennis ball – I bounced from the X-Men to Superman and back to X-Men so I’ve been in that world a while, and then I’m doing [Jack the Giant Killer] at Warner Bros, which is where I did Superman, so I’m with the same people.”

“So now [the reboot] makes sense. It’s a movie I would want to see, I think Zack’s so talented and I applaud Warner and Legendary for choosing somebody who’s a filmmaker and not necessarily just a shooter. It’s Superman, it’s gonna be made over and over in one form or another, and I’m sure Zack won’t be the last person to touch it either, so in a way it’s not in my mind any more. It would have been two and a half years ago.”

While True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello seems to be the most accurate ‘Clark Kent’ contender, the Chris Nolan-produced Man Of Steel reboot is still steered for a Winter release, apparently focusing on the hero’s early days.

Bryan Singer Wants Aaron Johnson To Kill Giants!

Posted on 06 October 2010 by Christian

Could Aaron Johnson bring the same intensity to Jack as he did to Kick Ass?

Of course he could. It is a totally different movie but why not. At least that’s what the fans will think. Maybe not the ‘ComicBookMovie Fan’ but the ‘Normal Movie Goer Fan’. What’s the difference you may ask? Well, that’s an entirely different article in its self. Back on task.

Deadline is reporting that Bryan Singer is ‘sweet’ on Aaron Johnson (WEIRD). Rumor has it that Andrew Garfield is up for the role as well.

Bryan Singer had to turn down ‘X-Men: First Class’ due to his commitment with ‘Jack the Giant Killer’.

Hey, I didn’t want the first comment to be ‘This isn’t even a Comic Book J-Man, oh my goodness this site is losing it’s integrity, waaaa waaaaa waaaaaa’, so there, see I fixed all that already:)
