SCOOP: Talk of a new SUPERGIRL movie

A scooper tells us what they've heard, and with who

Now that we know Warner Bros. is making some forward movement on their new Man of Steel movie (with X-MEN director Bryan Singer leading the charge), could someone at the studio be thinking of dusting off the Maid of Steel and giving her another chance to fly on the silver screen?

According to our latest scooper, it's an idea that's just started to be tossed around at Warners. We are keeping the identity of our source and their job position confidential, but it's how they came to learn of this idea for a new SUPERGIRL movie.

Here's what they had to say to us:

"Akiva Goldsman was going to write the film, after writing a favorable treatment, but has decided against it, he'll produce only. Melissa George, who was on ABC's ALIAS, is someone they're discussing for the lead. Whoever signs will be signing a two-picture deal.

"They're talking 2006, but since things are only now progressing, I suspect a little later."

Our source also cautioned us that it's just talk at this point, and whatever happens to Singer's SUPERMAN film will undoubtedly take priority first. Even though Bryan Singer is moving towards shooting the new SUPERMAN movie sometime next year, a best case scenario would mean that the picture probably wouldn't be in theaters until, at the very least, the summer of 2006. Even if reception to the new SUPERMAN movie is positive, it could still be a year or two before a greenlight is given to a SUPERGIRL movie.

[Our thanks to 'Striped Kryptonite' for sending this one to us.]

I remember the first one with the very attractive Helen Slater in the role. Wasn't much cop though.

Oooooooh I'd love to see Melissa George as Supergirl... I was totally in love with her when she was Angel in Home and Away, I thought she was the most attractive girl I ever did see :lol:

I loved the Supergirl movie when I was a kid. I remember the first time I saw it when I was 5 and I tried jumping off a wall in my yard cause I thought I'd be able to fly :lol: I think I convinced myself I was Supergirl cause I had the blonde hair and everything... so sad :lol: I remember seeing it again a couple of years ago and it's a crap movie but when you're young you don't really notice how shit things are.

Anyway, I would have thought that Melissa would be too old to be Supergirl by the time it gets made so... My vote goes for Scarlett Johansson :kiss:

How about Britney as Supergirl!

I loved Faye Dunaway as the baddie in the original movie. She reprised that Mommie Dearest role.

Supergirl was a great movie :D.

God I loved Helen Slater when I was a kid.

How times have changed - I was watching 'The Secret of my Success' the other day and I don't know what I was thinking !!!

Still, Faye Dunaway :drool: - even if she was about 600 when she was in the film.

I liked it when Faye Dunaway, as the Evil Selena, says "I will settle for nothing less than world domination" when looking for that Omegatron. I said something like that to Walter Wanger once when I was drunk at the Brown Derby but luckily no one heard me.
