Superman Returns director Bryan Singer apparently is spending money faster than a speeding bullet. A well-placed source tells the New York Post that the already big-budget film, due for a June release, has proven to be "a money pit," and that the final tab "will end up being close to $300 million" a third of which has gone solely toward visual effects. The resulting on-screen product, says the insider, is "Superman meets The Matrix." A rep for the film told the Post the budget quote "is absolutely absurd," then shouted for "Miss Teschmacher!"
