Brad Bird considered for 'Mission: Impossible IV'

That's stupid.

Brad Bird should be directing Superman. They should be begging him to do Superman.

Nolan is doing Superman. And there's more to Brad Bird than superheroes, Incredible fanboyism aside.

That said, I dunno, never liked the Mission Impossible franchise. I'd rather Brad Bird take up something I cared about.

No, no -- if Brad gets it, there's at least "hope" that Danny Elfman might be the composer! His score for the first film is one of his best! He was actually hired to do the sequel, but I have no idea what happened there with the replacement.

You are absolutely right. I've been saying it for some time. Of course none of you are execs at Warner Brothers so what good are any of you? ;)

No shit. But he has a style and touch appropriate to what Superman has been missing, more than any other top tier director right now. Heck, his touch on The Simpsons can translate to why he'd be good with Superman. I resent the impression that my opinion has anything to do with "Incredibles fanboyism," when I haven't seen that picture in years.

And Nolan is producing Superman.

So was the earlier talk post Trek XI of Abrams being involved just at a producer level or has any involvement with him faded out and I missed that news?

Giacchino has scored both Brad Bird movies, Abrams movies, and the last Mission Impossible. My money would be on him returning for 4.

It's a general comment. One superhero picture and some people seem to think Pixar and/or Brad Bird should do every superhero product under the sun.

I dunno, I think it'd be sort of hard to top the Incredibles at any rate.

Isn't the other Nolan directing Superman?

I'd rather see the next Superman or Fantastic Four movie done in CG animation than live action anyway - and something stylized, not the kind of "performance capture" realism of Avatar. Byrd would be perfect for that.

Re: Brad Bird considered for 'Mission: Impossible IV'
 
^ By stylized do you mean something like Monster House?

Well, Timm said at some point that the original design of his Batman animated series was somewhat inspired by the old Fleischer cartoon series. For Superman I'd like to see them draw on old comic book and animation styes, poster art of the 30s and 40s and Deco design. It ought to be a period story - late thirties, early WW II. Except with, you know, cool aliens and giant robots.

That sounds wonderful. Kind of a Dave Stevens sort of thing.

Get the team from Sky Captain to do the Art Direction

That's nothing but internet speculation. No director has even been discussed.

Dave Stevens is good.

I thought of mentioning that - I'm a big fan of Sky Captain. I know that even people inclined to like such things have a thousand reasons that it "just fell short," but I love it.
