Jon Schnepp released the first look of the full Trailer for his feature film documentary "The Death of Superman Lives; What Happened?" at the San Diego Comic Con on July 24, 2014. This documentary is about delving into the creative process of the proposed 1998 "Superman Lives" feature film, which was to be directed by Tim Burton, written by Kevin Smith, and star Nicolas Cage as Superman. This never made film would have been the most original, strangest, and cosmic Superman ever made. Since the release of the documentary’s Trailer, approximately 1.4 million viewers have watched it on You Tube. Jon Schnepp’s crowdfunding campaign via www.supportsupermanlives.com has now raised nearly sixty-five percent (65%) of the funds needed for the post-production and finishing phase of the feature film documentary, with approximately one month to go in the campaign.
Newsweek recently featured the documentary in an article by Paula Mejia entitled “Why Did Nicolas Cage’s ‘Superman’ Film Die?” As Mejia writes, “... if Schnepp’s documentary becomes a reality, audiences can now understand the mysteries behind the demise of Superman Lives.”
Audiences will get an additional look into the demise of Superman Lives when Schnepp releases the second full Trailer of his feature film documentary. Schnepp plans to release the second full Trailer on August 17, 2014 to fans who have contributed to his crowdfunding campaign. Following that sneak peak to Schnepp’s fans, the second full Trailer will then be released globally to the public.
“I’m so proud to be finally able to share some of the amazing interviews and incredible discoveries that I’ve found while making this feature film documentary.”, says Schnepp “I’m looking forward to finishing this unique yet expansive journey into the making of a movie that was never made.”
