According to Variety, the new Superman film, which is still in its very early development stages, will also be produced by Hannah Minghella. Presently no director is attached to the project and the search for an actor to portray Kal-El / Superman on the big screen has not yet started.
In a statement, Coates said, “To be invited into the DC Extended Universe by Warner Bros., DC Films and Bad Robot is an honour. I look forward to meaningfully adding to the legacy of America’s most iconic mythic hero.”

Toby Emmerich, chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group said, “Ta-Nehisi Coates’s ‘Between the World and Me’ opened a window and changed the way many of us see the world. We’re confident that his take on Superman will give fans a new and exciting way to see the Man of Steel.”

‘Between the World and Me’ was adapted into an HBO film which debuted last November, while ‘The Water Dancer’ is getting a big-screen adaptation from a producing team that includes Oprah Winfrey and Brad Pitt.
As per The Hollywood Reporter, though this is the first DC feature known to be in development under Abrams’ expansive WarnerMedia deal, he has several DC series in the works for streaming service HBO Max, including Justice League Dark and Constantine. (ANI)

She has immortalised my work in ‘The Girl On The Train’ through her art and this is the sweetest, warmest and most special gift that I have ever received from her,” says Parineeti.

I’m overwhelmed and at the same time, I’m feeling on top of the world.” Parineeti’s parents are the biggest pillars of strength for her and she has made special plans to put up this painting in her plush new house in Mumbai. 

She reveals, “My parents have been my biggest cheerleaders all through my life and I feel incredibly special to be their child. She has been my pole star, helping me navigate my path in this world and I don’t have words to express what I’m feeling right now. This precious painting will be at my home and will constantly motivate me to do more films which will get her to do more such paintings for me.”

‘The Girl On The Train’ is an acclaimed book written by Paula Hawkins. It was made into a Hollywood film starring Emily Blunt in the lead in 2016.
