Nearly two decades after the film folded, Nicolas Cage is opening up to Yahoo Movies! about Superman Lives.
Cage was, well, cagey about the production, but said that he regrets nothing about the process.
"The only thing I’ll say about that - because that is such a lighting rod hot topic and if I say anything at all it just seems to snowball - but I will say that I had great belief in that movie and in what Tim Burton’s vision was going to be for that movie." said Cage. "I would’ve loved to have seen it, but I feel that in many ways, it was sort of a win/win because of the power of the imagination. I think people can actually see the movie in their minds now and imagine it and in many ways that might resonate more deeply than the finished project."
Cage also had high praise for Tim Burton, the would-be director of Superman Lives.
"Tim is the total artist, a pure artist with a real vision, and I’ve often said that he can create worlds and that’s exactly what he does. I saw some of the tests of different characters and costumes for Krypton and they were just so surreal and so magical and beautiful. He’s definitely one of my favorite filmmakers because of his originality, because of his vision."
