Disappointed by the box-office performance of his latest film Sucker Punch, Warner Brothers executives have quietly moved to replace Zack Snyder as the director of the new remake of Superman, which will star Amy Adams as Lois Lane. Insiders at the the studio report that a deal is close to finalization which will bring Jean-Luc Godard aboard as director of the film. Superman would be the first major Hollywood assignment for the New Wave legend, who is reported to be thrilled by the prospect.
“I have worked outside the mainstream for too long,” Godard says. “Now I am ready to cash in. My whole career in cinema has been a prelude to this. I am very excited about meeting Amy Adams and using CGI to place her in thrilling situations on screen.”
