Superman flies Down Under

The Superman movies are set to fly again with the first of three prequels to be shot in Australia.
Hollywood insiders yesterday said Warner Bros were in final negotiations to split filming of the fifth movie between Sydney and Los Angeles.

The only hurdle that remains for the studio is in finding an actor to play the super hero, last portrayed by Christopher Reeve.

Filming is set to start later this year at Fox Studios on the movie that will focus on the origin of the super hero and his early years.

At the same time, Warner Bros will be shooting a new instalment in the Batman movies, to be released around the same time as the Superman movie, early in 2004.
