Hey Warner Bros.—ever consider hiring JJ Abrams? You ought to know that he’s still asking for that Superman gig!
The Star Trek director and Lost co-creator had written a script for the caped crusader way back before his career took off. Despite his vast success with his Star Trek reboot, Abrams is still longing for a shot at revitalizing the Superman franchise. He recently opened up about his relationship with the superhero:
“Writing that script was a long process. It was a very passionate character for me. As a kid growing up it meant a lot to me. It would be wonderful and fun to see that brought back. I don’t know what Warners is thinking or what their plan is. It would be a blast… No one has talked to me about it. Obviously I’m sure Warner Brothers has a plan for what they want to do.”
Did you hear that, higher-ups?
Not only are Abrams fans supporting this collaboration, but apparently so is fellow filmmaker, Kevin Smith—check out the video after the jump.

“Lost” creator JJ Abrams has released footage from the new Star Trek prequel in London. Actors include Chris Pine as Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Mr. Spock and Simon Pegg (“Shaun of the Dead”) as Scotty, who considers himself a “fully paid up geek.” There are also four segments that feature Leonard Nimoy as the elder Spock, including one in which he delivers the line, “Live long and prosper.” Expect the film to have a May 8, 2009 release in both the UK and the U.S (even though the trailer says Christmas.)
