SlashFilm is debunking a rumor, first reported on Ain't It Cool News, that the Wachowski brothers were in talks to reboot the Superman film franchise.

The site cites two independent anonymous sources saying that the report is completely false.

The rumor was supposedly based on an anonymous source citing a German TV interview of director James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin), who has worked with the Wachowskis before. It's unclear if such an interview actually took place.

In any case, the Wachowski Brothers have definitely never had any talks with DC or Warner Brothers to helm a Superman film, SlashFilm reported.
