TRAILER: Documentary On Failed SUPERMAN Movie w/ TIM BURTON, NICHOLAS CAGE, KEVIN SMITH
Still from "The Death of 'Superman Lives'" Documentary
The Superman movie franchise is riding high with the success of Man of Steel and the upcoming Superman vs. Batman: Dawn of Justice, but there was another vision that was never realized -- one with Nicholas Cage as Superman.
The often-talked about Superman Lives movie by Tim Burton that was never made is finally getting it's moment in the sun with a new documentary by Jon Schnepp. Titled The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?, the documentary features interview with Burton, as well as screenwriter Kevin Smith and comics writer Grant Morrison amongst others, and includes never-before-seen production art, behind-the-scenes footage, and even a special effects test clip showing Cage-as-Superman flying. Schnepp has released the first trailer for The Deah of Superman Lives: What Happened?, and is looking to crowdfunding to raise an additional $85,000 to complete production on the documentary.
