Walker to pen Superman/Batman pic

Warner Bros. Pictures has commissioned Andrew Kevin Walker to pen an untitled script that will pair superheroes Superman and Batman, with Wolfgang Petersen attached to direct.

The Petersen / Walker project joins a roster of other Batman- and Superman-based pics in development at Warners. These include the Jon Peters-produced “Superman” and the newest installment of the “Batman” saga, which is to be directed by Darren Aronofsky.

Petersen signed a first-look deal in January to direct pictures for the studio under his shingle Radiant Prods. He also has an independently funded production company, Red Cliff Prods., which is backed by Germany’s Advanced Medien.

Petersen previously directed “The Perfect Storm” for Warners, which was the studio’s top-grossing film of 2000.

Walker is penning an adaptation of the Marvel comic “Silver Surfer” for 20th Century Fox. Best known for his script “Seven” and “Sleepy Hollow,” he also penned “Red, White, Black and Blue,” which Donald DeLine will produce for Paramount Pictures. He is repped by Endeavor and managed by Gavin Polone.
