Breakups are never easy, but the latest split between Warner Bros and Legendary has resulted in Legendary trading Zack Snyder's Man of Steel 2 for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar.
Yep, according to a source at The Wrap, the production company that backed this summer's Man of Steel has decided to bow out of the sequel and has instead chosen to join forces with Paramount and Warner Bros to co-produce Christopher Nolan's upcoming sci-fier, Interstellar.
Now all of this came from a recent "Hollywood divorce" type split between Warner Bros and Legendary Entertainment, who have been co-producing together for about 8 years. THR is reporting that during the split Warner's CEO, Kevin Tsujihara, wanted to keep all of the DC properties with Warner, and would in exchange give Legendary stake in Nolan's Interstellar as a compromise. And while this may seem like Legendary will be getting the short end of the stick, being that the Batman Superman team up will be one for the record books, you might want to think twice.
Need I remind you that Christopher Nolan makes solid films that do extremely well at the box office, in fact, his last three movies which include The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises have made around 3 billion dollars worldwide. And according to a THR source, Legendary's CEO, Thomas Tull was more than pleased with the trade.
And following their split with Warner, Legendary signed a new partnership deal with Universal Pictures which will begin in 2014. And in that deal, they will be bringing over some of their other properties for Universals consideration like their videogame adaptation of Warcraft, as well as some of their other projects in development like Hot Wheels, Mass Effect, and the Michael Mann film, Cyber.
So, do you think that Legendary made the right decision to give up their position in Man of Steel 2 for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar?
