A source within Warner Brothers is saying that Jonathan Nolan, brother of ‘The Dark Knight’ director Christopher Nolan, will direct the 3D reboot of ‘Superman’. The source also revealed that Zachary Levi (Chuck) had auditioned for the role of Superman.
Recent rumours had Chris Columbus directing, but a different report has ended those rumors. Christopher Nolan has been attached to the project since February, when it was announced he would produce with Jonathan co-writing the film along with ‘The Dark Knight’s’ David Goyer. If true, this would be Jonathan Nolan’s first time in the director’s seat.
