The Death of “Superman Lives”: What Happened? is the long-awaited documentary from director Jon Schnepp which will delve into the infamous canned Superman movie project which initially had writer Kevin Smith & director Tim Burton attached. Nicholas Cage was cast as Superman; and there is even footage of the screen tests he did in costume for this film however after under-going several rewrites and delays the project rested in studio development hell.
According to the film-makers the documentary will cover everything ever made for this film, interviews with people who were involved (including Smith, Burton & producer Jon Peters) and even recreations of scenes from the original script. The funds for this documentary were raised through a successful crowd-funding campaign as well as from individual investors. A poster and final trailer was released this week.
