I wouldn’t normally write about documentaries on my blog but this one could be fascinating. A trailer has just dropped for The Death Of Superman Lives; What Happened? The project was funded by a Kickstarter campaign and is the result of a lot of patience by producer and director John Schnepp.
The story behind this documentary is the ill-fated attempt to make another Superman movie around 1996. The actor intended to ware the famous red briefs was Nicholas Cage. Yep, that’s right, Nicholas Cage. The script for Superman Lives! was written by Kevin Smith and was going to be directed by Tim Burton. It’s a very talented line up. Anyway the movie didn’t come to pass and this documentary attempts to piece the story together with interviews with many of the key players.
Not sure if its going to get a distribution deal but keep your eyes peeled.
