Superman coming to Vancouver? It's up in the air


VANCOUVER — Superman may be flying into Vancouver next summer. Then again, he may not.
A media report surfaced Friday that the latest film about the Man of Steel will be shot here. This is a spin off the fact that the movie will be directed by Zack Snyder, who has worked here before.
But Susan Croome of the B.C. Film Commission says it hasn’t been nailed down just yet.

“I haven’t had any confirmation that Superman is green-lit for Vancouver in 2011,” said Croome, just back in town after some meetings in Los Angeles.
“We do know that Zack Snyder had a really great experience here on The Watchmen and Sucker Punch, and we’re hopeful the experience he had in the past will lead to new productions.”

Peter Leitch of Mammoth and North Shore Studios said he couldn’t confirm Superman, either.

“It’s difficult to talk about movies like that specifically, because we never know 100-per-cent if they’re coming here,” said Leitch, who is also chair of the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of B.C.

“We’re pretty comfortable that Zack Snyder’s [next] movie is coming here, but there are factors in all these productions which delay them, or for whatever reason they change their mind and do something differently...until they’re on the ground here and working and we know they’re here, there’s no certainty. It gets a little bit awkward when we talk about specific projects like that.”

Whether Superman comes here or not, 2011 is looking promising for the B.C. film industry. Stars like Tom Cruise, Liam Neeson and Kate Beckinsale are all slated to be working in town in the new year.

Cruise is here for the latest Mission Impossible movie, Aries. Neeson will be shooting The Grey, a thriller from Ridley and Tony Scott’s production company. Beckinsale will be here for Underworld 4.

An Alvin and The Chipmunks movie, Chipmunked, will also be shooting here, along with the sci-fi movie Apollo 18, a Weinstein company vehicle.

It’s directed by Gonzalez Lopez-Gallego, and is rumoured to be based on “found footage” of a secret outer space mission where astronauts encountered space aliens.

“The big studio facilities here are all really busy,” said Leitch. “In fact we’re turning away work.”

The latest installment of the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn, has been filming in New Orleans and Rio de Janeiro, but will return to the Lower Mainland for shooting in late February.

The film is apparently being split into two parts, one to be released in November 2011, one to be released in November 2012.

Smallville Shocker! Star Guilty in 'Hillbilly Heroin'-Trafficking Ring

Sam Jones III just went from Smallville to guilty town.
The actor, best known as Clark Kent's former buddy on the long-running Superman series, today pleaded guilty in Los Angeles federal court to conspiracy to sell more than 10,000 oxycodone pills.

So how did he go from small-screen good guy to a drug trafficker?

Jones, 27, was busted at his Canoga Park, Calif., home last year for allegedly trying to sling the painkiller otherwise known as "hillbilly heroin."

Today, he pleaded guilty as a coconspirator in the drug ring, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

The feds arrested him after determining he was the "Hollywood connection" involved in the ring's illegal purchasing and distributing the drugs.

Jones faces up to 20 years in federal prison. His sentencing is set for June 22nd.

Jones was arrested by the DEA back in October at his home in L.A. after meeting with an undercover agent who was posing as an Oxycodone supplier. Jones was part of a group planning to purchase and distribute 10,000 Oxycodone pills.

The DEA seized 586 pounds of marijuana and 10,000 fake Oxycodone tablets, which the defendants believed were real. Jones has been described as the group's "Hollywood connection".

He posted $100,000 in property and $20,000 cash.

Superman Start Date. Where and when the Man of Steel will shoot.

A new Superman movie is finally close to actually happening, with word coming today on when and where director Zack Snyderplans on shooting the film. The Globe and Mail has the news that the production appears to be headed to Vancouver in the summer of 2011.

"[Zack Snyder's] next feature's coming here," said Peter Leitch, chair of the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of British Columbia and president of North Shore Studios and Mammoth Studios.

Leitch would not specifically name the Man of Steel project as the film in question, though obviously that's what Snyder is doing next -- and a source for the paper confirms the news.

By the way, Superman Returns was shot in Australia and the original Christopher Reeve film was shot in England, New York City and Alberta, Canada (for the Smallville scenes) And do we remember boys, and girls what show shoots in Vancouver which wraps production on it's 10th and final season before next summer? That's right SMALLVILLE!!!

Does this mean anything when it comes to us getting Tom Welling in the role? Perhaps or perhaps not. Only time will tell but it sure is shaping up in his favor. Storyline is about a Superman who's struggling with being Superman, and he's in his "early days" in the suit, and also that they are going for a 32 to mid 30's actor. Tom Welling fits all those bills to a T.... Or an \S/ :)

Either way the fans have spoken time, and time again on who we want to see in the role, and Tom Welling is that person, and with the show wrapping production for good next Summer would fit perfect because they could use all the sets which are already in place which would save the production millions!!! Not like how Singerman Returns had to spend millions on building a new farm setting, and the entire cities of Metropolis, and Smallville.

After that movie flopped the studio wants to make money from this next project, and want to save money on the production as much as possible while still giving the fans the best movie possible.
Keep your fingers crossed...

True Blood‘s Manganiello may play Superman

As first reported by Jamie and Peter over at TMTTrue Blood” Lycanthrope Joe Maganiello was pursuing the main role in Zack Snyder’s new “Superman”. While not my top choice (Tom Welling is my number 1 choice) he has the frame, the dark complexion, the looks, the size.

But anyway, just how interested would Warner Bros and Snyder be in casting this relative unknown as the new Man of Steel? Had they even heard his cries to be considered? They did last time with BJ and that failed big time... It would make more sense to cast Tom Welling who's the same age, size, and is widely known, and accepted as this generations Superman.

Makes no sense to cast anyone but Tom Welling honestly but we will wait, and see how this casting pans out. It was reported earlier that Manganiello appeared on a panel at EyeCon this weekend and confirmed there had been “talks” of some sort between he and the Super-crew.
Manganiello was quick to update his Twitter account with clarification – he isn’t actually in “negotiations” but there’s ‘something’ going on. , “Just to be clear… as of today, I am not ‘negotiating’ to play SuperMan …but keep your fingers crossed and thanks for the wishful thinking!”
In other words, the actor has met with Snyder and Warner Bros about playing the role. That likely also means that so have a dozen or more other young bucks, including Brandon Routh (who played the role in “Superman Returns”), Tom Welling (who plays Clark Kent on “Smallville”), Scott Porter (who played Jason Street on “Friday Night Light”), and – maybe? – Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”).
Manganiello is great as Alcide on “True Blood”, and he fit the part of Flash Thompson perfectly in the “Spider-Manmovies, but is he Superman?

I see there’s a swell of support for Manganiello on the internet (though a couple have pointed out that the guy’s “big nose” might cost him the job) but there’s just as many campaigning to have Routh reinstated.

But neither compare to the fans pushing for Tom Welling to be given the role on the big screen as he's won every major poll ever put out with him on it, and even won a poll!

As well as this Soda Heads poll which ends on Jan 1st Tom Welling is clearly the fan favorite.

Here’s a fan-made Manganiello as Superman pic :

Will Batman Make an Appearance in the Superman Movie?

A British newspaper, and Snyder talk more about him getting the job, working with Chris Nolan, Batman vs. Superman, it's association to past movies and the rumoured $175 million budget...

Here are the main excerpts from The Daily Telegraph interview which was posted online earlier today. For the whole thing, where the director talks more about his new movie Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, be sure to follow the link at the bottom of this page.

You’re directing the next Superman movie: that’s quite a gig. How do you feel about taking on the superhero that everyone loves?

It’s very exciting. Do I feel responsible? Look, as a fan, I want to make it awesome, so in that way I feel responsible. There’s an amazing film in there to be had, and I’m excited to get at it.

You’re working with Christopher Nolan, director of the last two Batman films. Is there a conflict of interest there? Batman vs Superman?

He is a generous and amazing talent and as a producer super-supportive even in just the few weeks we’ve been talking about it.

What can you say about it at this stage?

Nothing. It’s very early in the process and it’s going to be famously guarded. So there’s very little to be said other than I’m a huge fan and I’m excited to get started on this.

It’s going to be a reboot of the franchise...

In the sense that it doesn’t really owe anything to what’s happened before cinematically.

And apparently you’re getting $175 million to play with...

I have no idea. Nobody has said anything to me about that, but I’ll quote that at them. It’s a good place to start in the negotiations.

What's most interesting about this interview is the fact that Snyder says, "we’ve been talking about it" when asked about Superman vs. Batman. Is he talking specifically about the two teaming up on the big screen or just about The Man of Steel in general? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!

Who should play Superman?

Ok I know my top choice is Tom Welling, and I HATED Singerman Returns.

I know people who know Brandon Routh, and know he's a very nice guy, and all that jazz but guess what? The movies he's done have all sucked, and his version of a water down Reeve Superman was horrific.

I never want to see him in another Superman movie as long as I live, and will boycott the movie if he's indeed hired for the role.

So that's how I feel about Brandon Routh, and his version of Singer...Superman.

Tom Welling is my top choice because he simply embodies the character like no actor I have ever seen since Chris Reeve.

He is this generations Superman, and after 10 seasons of playing Clark Kent on Smallville it's time the fans who stayed loyal, and love the show are rewarded with a big screen send off where we get to see our generations Superman actually take flight, and in a movie directed by Zack Snyder, and produced by Chris Nolan.

How can we go wrong if we the fans are given that trio of Nolan/Snyder/Welling? That is pure boxoffice gold folks.

I know I will see this movie 10 times in theaters myself... Anyway now you guys pick who would you like to see in the movie?

Tom Welling or Brandon Routh?
