Alicia Malone is a Film Reporter, TV Host, Producer, Writer, Editor, and all around movie geek. She developed her taste for film at a young age, spending many a heady Friday night pajama-clad at the video store, picking out her 7 films for 7 days for $7. Bargain! While at school she created a Film Club, electing herself President. Eventually the School Principal asked her not to get up in assembly to talk about movies anymore.

The Superman reboot ”Man of Steel” is now in the stables, ready to run.

According to Deadline, a search has begun to find the new Man of Steel – and by the sounds of it, director Zack Snyder and producer Christopher Nolan aren’t against the idea of casting an unknown in the role. Having said that, ”The Social Network”’s Armie Hammer, ”The Vampire Diaries”‘ Ian Somerhalder, and ”True Blood”’s Joe Manganiello remain in contention.

Says the website, “Insiders tell us the studio is open to creating a star as it reboots the Superman franchise: specifically, that the actor will either be a discovery or on TV but likely someone who isn’t well known yet. And he’ll be in the age range of 28-to-32. The studio expects to look at hundreds of young actors before making a decision. Agents who are readying candidates note that hiring an established series regular might not even be possible. The film will likely begin production around next June, and that shooting schedule could wreak havoc with fall prime time schedules.”

A helluva lot of actors auditioned and consequently screen-tested for the role of Superman in ”Superman Returns” – Jim Caviezel, Matthew Bomer, Christopher Showerman, Mike O’Hearn, Paul Walker, Ashton Kutcher, David Boreanaz – before Bryan Singer decided on Brandon Routh, so chances are we will be waiting quite a while before we find out who got the job. In the meantime, let the rumours fly!
