Rumored Silver Surfer Director Won't Work With FOX

The creativity killers are at it again! Acclaimed "Dark City" director, Alex Proyas, won't be doing a Silver Surfer movie mainly because he hates Fox Studio's meddling executives.

At one time, FOX was the hero of the comic book movie community. What is going on FOX? You're quickly becoming the villain! This from MTV...


While at Comic-Con last month, acclaimed director Alex Proyas blew the lid off rumors that he was going to be directing a “Silver Surfer” spin-off, claiming the news of his involvement was nothing more than idle internet chatter.

There may be more to it than that, he told MTV News. Although he wouldn’t go so far as to say there was ever an official offer, why would he never even consider a “Silver Surfer” movie?

“Because it’s a Fox picture,” the “Dark City” helmer said. “And I’m determined never to work with them ever again because of my experience on ‘I,Robot.’”

That’s bad news for fans of the first family of crimefighting and their various spin-off characters (like Surfer) since, as Chris Evans told MTV first last March, a "Fantastic Four 3" is probably never going to happen.

Of course, nobody really liked “Fantastic Four 2,” especially the subplot with the Surfer, Proyas argued.

“It’s like the origin of Silver Surfer was in that movie, and I’m going, ‘This is such a f–king great story, why throw it away?’” Proyas wondered. “I think they messed it up.”

So with Surfer out of the way (and, for that matter, the F4 or the X-Men, both Fox properties) is there a comic book hero or villain Proyas would like to adapt?

“You know, there aren’t that many left,” he sighed. “Silver Surfer would have been something I would have loved to have done. He’s one of the last cool ones left, really.”
