Caviezel won’t be Superman. Thus sayeth the director.

Ain’t It Cool News has an interview with Bryan Singer about Superman, X-3, and Logan’s Run. Singer himself says that Jim Caviezel will NOT be Superman.

Capone: Is there any truth to the reports that you have a deadline to lock in the main cast or Warner Bros. will step in a do it for you?

Singer: No, that’s absurd. I read that too and think it’s just bizarre about James Caviezel, who’s a wonderful actor. But, no, I’m committed to casting an unknown.

Capone: So asking you what that unknown might be would be pointless, because we probably would not have heard of this person, right?

Singer: Right.

    You know, the kind of reason that just warms the heart.

    They offered “lots of money”.
