Superman Probably Shooting In Vancouver Next Summer
Ever since we learned that Zack Snyder would be directing the newest Superman movie in early October, there's been very little concrete news on the project. Even the report from November that says Snyder and producer Christopher Nolan are looking for a relatively unknown 30-year-old actor has yet to be confirmed, and the rumor that Hans Zimmer would provide the score turned out to be wrong as well.
And yet, production still seems to be moving forward with an eye on starting next summer, and it looks like it'll all be happening in the Pacific Northwest. Following in the footsteps of Tron: Legacy, Rise of the Apes and countless other blockbusters, the Superman reboot will be shooting in Vancouver, at least according to Peter Leitch, the chair of the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of British Columbia (via Canada's The Globe and Mail). Leitch didn't actually mention the project by name, just that "Zack Snyder's next feature's coming here," but it's not that hard to put together the pieces. Snyder also shot Sucker Punch in the Canadian province, and they're understandably excited to have him coming back with even more money to play with.
I wouldn't count on hearing anything new about Superman until after the New Year-- everyone's going on vacation, just like you wish you could-- but come January the rumor mill should kick back up in full force. Enjoy this break while it lasts, people!
