We've been tipped by a scooper that Warner Bros. has selected ESC Entertainment to produce the visual effects for its upcoming SUPERMAN
film. ESC is the San Francisco-based special effects firm that was created after the dissolution of Manex Visual Effects (the firm that created most of the effects for the first MATRIX
film); many of the ex-employees of Manex went on to found and work at ESC. The company created the bulk of the major visual effects sequences for the two MATRIX
sequels and went on to deliver effects for the remake of THE LADYKILLERS
. They are currently working on two more Warner Bros. movie projects, namely CATWOMAN
According to the scooper, ESC is currently contracted to produce all of the visual effects for the new SUPERMAN
, which would turn out to be a major task. No further details were given by our scooper. At the present time the website for ESC Entertainment does not list SUPERMAN
among its list of projects. Given ESC's close ties to Warner Bros., it's more than feasible the studio chose to award the job to a company that has proven themselves more than capable in the past.
