IN THE FUTURE, Everyone Will Direct Superman for Fifteen Minutes:

From Zentertainment -- it's official -- Brett Ratner has been dropped as the director of SUPERMAN V.

"I have chosen to withdraw as director of SUPERMAN," Ratner said. "The difficulty of casting the role of Superman has contributed to my decision. I appreciate the efforts of Warner Bros. and the entire production team during this process." The move comes shortly after all actors that screen test for the lead role were nixed from contention or left the project.

Ratner joins his colleagues Tim Burton, Wolfgang Petersen and "McG" on the Phantom Zone back bench. Next up -- the rumor mills keep mentioning Michael Bay.
