Apparently this was bogus info. I've done some digging to try to figure out who the originator of the press release was. His name is Matthew Fisher.
Now I don't know for certain, but it seems like he is an unpublished screenwriter. If it's who I think it is, he's written quite a few Sci Fi scripts, but as far as I can tell, none have been published.
One of the scripts he's written is titled Superman 5 (go figure). He's also written scripts for Star Trek: Enterprise, Superman (animated).
I don't know what the purpose of this could possibly be, except to get some publicity in some roundabout way.
