Now that production is underway on 'Man of Steel,' Zack Snyder is already thinking about his next project -- and it might be one that doesn't require a blue or green screen to carry the story forward .

Variety reports that the director of '300,' 'Watchmen' and 'Sucker Punch' is planning to direct 'The Last Photograph,' a story set in Afghanistan that he's been developing for the past four years. The plot revolves around a photograph that sends a journalist and an ex-special ops agent on a mission through war-torn Afghanistan.

Sean Penn and Christian Bale are attached to the film -- though a lot can happen between now and when this project gets off the ground.

'Man of Steel' is set to be released June 14, 2013.
