We love Tim Burton around these parts, but when he was set to direct a Superman reboot film in the late ’90′s, even we were scratching our heads at every decision that came to light. Superman Lives was to be a feature film that capitalized on the sales boom around the “Death and Return of Superman” story lines in the comics. Jon Schnepp, a writer & director on Metalocalypse and director of the upcoming crowdfunded animated series Grimm Fairy Tales, became obsessed with the film, collecting any snippet of concept art he could find off the internet. His desire to see this unfinished film for the cheese-fest it surely would have been has now pushed him to make his own documentary about it.
