Wachowskis Up For "Superman" Trilogy?

AICN has posted the surprising rumor (but from an apparently reliable source) that "The Matrix" helmers the Wachowski Brothers have been approached to re-boot the "Superman" franchise as a trilogy.

The comment comes from regular Wachowski collaborator James McTeigue ("V for Vendetta," "Ninja Assassin") on a German TV show special on RTL1 that dealt with the films being released in the coming year.

The scoop adds that "Superman Returns" director Bryan Singer has refused to be involved in the reboot and may fall back on his long-planned "Logan's Run" remake, but the Wachowski are still just considering the offer.

The pair have "Plastic Man" in development with McTeigue serving as second unit helmer, should they take on the Superman job then it's likely McTeigue will be upped to full on director of "Plastic Man".
