Here's what he told Rolling Stone :
"So many of those properties – it's a childhood child, watching or reading or whatever you were doing with that stuff. It's a filmmaker's dream. But you know, I feel like I only have so much time. I have a lot of stories to tell, and it just does not feel right. It just does not feel right. I'm a comic book and graphic novelist, but I can not call myself a true fanboy. "
In other words: He's putting his efforts into telling stories-at least as a director. Candyman remake (but not directing).
