Director Bryan Singer is circling the Mark Wahlberg suspense thriller "The Prisoners" as his next project, reports EW. The story concerns a Boston father (surprise!) who goes on the hunt for a kidnapper who has nabbed his daughter. EW claims the screenplay, credited to newcomer Aaron Guzikowski, is a combination of "Silence of the Lambs" and "Seven," such a tired, dated frame of reference that it makes us think of Donald Kaufman's pitch for "The Thr3e." The fact that Singer is being mentioned in conjunction with projects like this and Joel Silver's "Logan's Run" suggests that he may finally be removed from speculation over where Warner Bros. is taking "Superman: The Man Of Steel," a project that continues to have no forward momentum. Singer's not fully committed to "Technology Vs. Horse" yet, but after the lukewarm reception for "Valkyrie," we don't see him having that many other options.
