EXCLUSIVE: Barry Sonnenfeld In Talks With Warner Bros. To Helm A Comic Book Movie
Barry Sonnenfeld has helmed all three instalments of the Men in Black franchise (the third is released this Friday) and in a brief excerpt from from my interview with the director, he reveals that he's in talks with Warner Bros. to helm a comic book movie.
Last week, I got the chance to put my questions to Men in Black 3 director Barry Sonnenfeld. While there has already been talk of a fourth instalment, it sounds as if he may have a very different project to tackle before that happens. When asked about what he thinks of the recent trend of successful superhero movies and whether there are any characters in particular he'd like to bring to the big screen, the filmmaker revealed the following.
"You know, I'm talking to Warner Bros. about doing a franchise based on a comic that hasn't been around since the 60s. But it's too early to talk about it. But possibly, yes."
So, nothing concrete just yet, but this is very interesting indeed. While it's seemingly not a a big name DC superhero, the adaptation is obviously a character that the studio holds the rights to, so whether or not it's some sort of obscure superhero remains unknown. Any ideas? Stay tuned to CBM this week for the rest of my interview with Barry Sonnenfeld in which he discusses Men in Black 3 in great detail and also comments on the chances of the rumoured fourth movie mentioned above.
