[Movies] Documentary on Tim Burton's Failed Superman Film in the Works
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.24.2013

A documentary on the Tim Burton Superman film that never was is in the works. Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse) has launched a Kickstarter campaign for financing on the film, which would look at the death of Superman Lives which would have starred Nick Cage based on a script from Kevin Smith. Smith's script famously adhered to strict instructions from producer Jon Peters, including having a non-flying, all-black suit-wearing Superman fight a giant spider and having Brianiac not only fight polar bears at the Fortress of Solitude, but also give Lex Luthor a space dog to capitalize on toy revenue possibilities. Nicolas Cage was attached to the lead role. Burton then hired Wesley Strick to completely rewrite Smith's script.

Schnepp has been interested in the project for years and thinks that if it had been produced, it would have acheived cult status due to it giving a different take on Superman's mythology. You can donate to the Kickstarter here.
