Warner Bros. Seeking Super Scribes

Dougherty and Harris opt out of Superman Returns sequel.

Aspiring screenwriters with an abiding love for the colors red and blue — not to mention the letter “S” — may want to consider sending recent examples of their work to the Warner Bros. offices.

Despite earlier rumors to the contrary, it turns out that Superman Returns screenwriters Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris will not be writing the sequel — Variety is reporting that the duo has opted not to return for the follow-up. From the article:

Industry chatter claimed the studio would start fresh with a new take on the Man of Steel, as if the previous pic never happened.

Reasons mentioned were the introduction of Superman’s son with Lois Lane, as well as the film’s less-than-expected domestic haul of $200 million and another $191 million overseas.

But WB denies such plans and said next pic would be a sequel with Brandon Routh likely to wear the “S” on his chest again. Legendary Pictures is co-developing and co-financing the project.

The Variety report says Dougherty and Harris are concentrating on directing now — Warner Bros.’ recently-wrapped Trick ‘R Treat will mark Dougherty’s feature debut, while Harris is writing and directing I, Lucifer.
