Just an hour ago I participated in a press conference with producer Joel Silver for his new movie “Whiteout”. While Joel has a ton of projects in development on his IMDB page, he talked about a new one today. When he was asked about his thoughts on 3D and would he want to make any of his movies in the format he said, “I’m developing a picture now that I’d like to do…I’ll hopefully do Swamp Thing, which is a movie we’ve had for a long time. We think that would be great to do in 3D. There are a couple of projects I’m thinking about (for the format) but not everything.”

When the press conference ended, I managed to get another question in and I asked him if there was any truth to the Wachowski Brothers being involved in “Superman”. It’s after the jump:

Joel: I don’t think so.

Do you know what they might do next?

Joel: I really don’t know. They’re working on something.

You mentioned Swamp Thing in the press conference…

Joel: Maybe going to do it. I like it.

While I had all of 20 seconds with Joel as he was walking to another room to do more press, I’m extremely happy that he at least told me the Wachowski’s are working on something. Could it be they’re on “Superman” and Joel didn’t want to tell me….maybe. But he’s been involved with everything the brothers have done and I can usually read someone and he wasn’t smiling when he gave me the answer to my “Superman” question….I say that because sometimes I’ll get an answer but the person saying it will look at me and smile as they say it. Meaning I can’t say anything but there is more to the story. That wasn’t the case today.

Of course the big news is “Swamp Thing”. While I’m no expert on the character or the “Swamp Thing” universe, I’m sure many people out there are extremely excited to hear the property is moving forward. More as I get it.
