There has just been a FLURRY of news regarding Zack Snyder‘s upcoming reboot of the Superman franchise, entitled Superman: Man of Steel.
Earlier today, we reported that actress Amy Adams scored the role of Superman/Clark Kent’s love interest, Lois Lane, in the upcoming movie (can read all about it here). I think Adams is an inspired, if unconventional, choice for the part.
But that is not the only news that has come out regarding Snyder’s new project. And this delves into the nitty-grittiness of the production, which I’m sure the production company is not happy about.
Firstly, the film is scheduled to start shooting in Chicago in August, and will shoot for two or three months with production in the suburban are known as Plano substituting for the Kent’s rural home of Smallville, and will shoot under the code name “Autumn Frost.” The plan is to shoot the outside scenes in Chicago, and the inside scenes in Vancouver, British Columbia.
But, now that the code name is known, it will be much more difficult to avoid unwanted publicity for the production.
Also revealed was the film’s budget of $175 million, which hopefully will be enough to make a great Superman movie (unlike the last one).
The movie also stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Diane Lane as his mother, Martha Kent, and Kevin Costner as his father, Jonathan.
