Director of Superman Returns signs development deal with ABC

Bryan SingerAccording to the UK site Digital Spy, Bryan Singer, director of the summer blockbuster Superman Returns, has signed a development deal with ABC. In the reported seven-figure deal, Singer will develop three pilot scripts for the network; the network is gauaranteeing Singer that at least one of them will end up being produced with him as the showrunner.

This isn't Singer's first TV venture; he was involved as an executive producer and director for House. Let's hope whatever pilot comes out of this deal is closer to the House aesthetic (and maybe that of Singer's first hit feature, The Usual Suspects) than the comic-book genre he's been involved with lately. We already have Heroes and Smallville; that's plenty for me.

Blockbuster? Surely you jest. Otherwise, I'm going to declare *Ishtar* - in revisionist fashion - to have been a blockbuster.

And keep him far away from *Smallville* please...for its own good!

I actually hope he IS making some sort of Superhero TV pilot. If he can make a show half as good as "Smallville" or the not-picked-up "Aquaman" counterpart, I'd be happy.
