Superman Sequel and Mayor of Castro Street in 2009?
Superman director Bryan Singer met with Spacey in New York while the latter was appearing on Broadway in Eugene O'Neill's recently wrapped "Moon for the Misbegotten."There's been some back and forth on whether Bryan Singer directing The Mayor of Castro Street is truth or memorex.
Singer was about to pitch his "Man of Steel" sequel to Warner Bros.; "Superman Returns" scripter Michael Dougherty is now writing the screenplay.
After Singer completes "Valkyrie" and "The Mayor of Castro Street," he plans to start production on "Man of Steel" next year for a 2009 release.
Variety seems to think he's doing it. And that he's gonna bang it out in between Valkyrie and Man of Steel... while keeping the latter's Summer (or Fall) 2009 release date. Which is just insane--No one works that fast. (OK, Spielberg does.)
I'd rather see Castro Street first, even if Kevin Spacey does inevitably end up playing assassin Dan White... and even if it does mean delaying Man of Steel another year, to 2010. Superheroes can wait. Castro Street is way more important, and Singer is exactly the right director to make it. I hope he does.
