MTV did this interview with J.J. Abrams about his take on the character. It is well known he did a script for a film version that has made the rounds in Hollywood, and was not always well reviewed (Here is one of those reviews from the Superman Homepage). Among other things Abrams said: "It was a very passionate character for me. As a kid growing up it meant a lot to me. It would be wonderful and fun to see that brought back. I don't know what Warners is thinking or what their plan is. It would be a blast. That version of the movie - the one that was reviewed and vilified - was actually not the latest draft we had at the time and we worked on it well after that. I do think there's a version of that movie that could be really fun to see. You never really know. Everything happens for a reason." BTW: ComicBookMovie.com has this different discussion with him from their archive.
ScreenRant tells us here of this upcoming release that recounts the "true events" of one doctor's (Milla Jovovich) investigation into a town whose residents experienced shared phenomenon having to do (supposedly) with alien abduction. The film (that has an official site here, including trailers) opens Nov. 6, 2009.
