New Superhero movie for Michael Mann


Another Superhero movie anyone? Ok, how about one directed by Michael Mann ("The Insider")? Hmm…yeah that got your interest. According to Variety, Artisan Pictures has set Mann to direct "Tonight, He Comes", a drama that was scripted by Vincent Ngo and will be produced by Akiva Goldsman. Filming will start sometime in 2004. The project is about a tortured superhero who crash-lands in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, and tries to revitalize himself by romancing an alluring housewife — causing chaos in the city. "I’ve always felt it was one of the best unmade scripts," said Goldsman, who’ll produce under his Weed Road banner. "Anytime I’ve spoken to someone in a position of power, I’ve asked them to buy it." "The character starts out potent and effective, and when the will to do what he’s supposed to do wanes, he finds himself in this existential crisis," added the studio’s Richard Saperstein.
