Slated to be the filmmaker's next directorial effort, the picture will have a WWII setting and be similar to his 1995 effort "The Usual Suspects" in that it is a multi-character ensemble piece. Not only that, "Suspects" scribe Chris McQuarrie has also been brought along into the flick to pen the screenplay as well as to produce alongside Singer.

In the meantime, trade adds that the movie therefore will delay Warner Bros. Pictures' hope of mounting "Superman: The Man of Steel", a sequel to last year's box-office hit "", in the near future. Singer, through his Bad Hat Harry production company, in fact has an overall deal at the studio, where he also sets up Harvey Milk biopic "The Mayor of Castro Street."
