After the tyrade I tossed on Zack Snyder this weekend with my review of Sucker Punch it makes me feel good to talk about something more positive. Namely the upcoming Superman Man of Steel which Snyder is directing. The film according to ChicagoBusiness.com is going to be filming in two locations one being near chicago and the other in Canada.
According to the site Warner Brothers recently started hiring staff to work on a project code-named Autumn Frost in Plano Chicago. According to union and film industry sources the film Autumn Frost is in fact Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.
They will spend 10 weeks prepping and 10 weeks shooting. The outdoor shots will be shot in Chicago but for the indoor shots they will be moving to Vancouver Canada to shoot. The Mayor of Plano Robert Hausler has confirmed Warner Brothers is shooting a major motion picture in his city but did not confirm that it was Superman Man of Steel.
I am really looking forward to the upcoming Superman Man of Steel because Zack Snyder intends to make it his own and not rely on the groundwork laid out by the previous films. His movie will be its own stand alone film and although it will be steeped in the comics it will not necessarily take much from them.
The other major item for Superman is the fact that Christopher Nolan and David Goyer are both involved in the project and frankly combining these two heavyweights who brought us The Dark Knight Rises with Zack Snyder on a Superman project, to me its just heaven!
