The Daily Buzz at Comic-Con: Episode 1

The Daily Buzz at Comicon International San Diego spoke with filmmakers Jon Schnepp and Holly Payne about their documentary, "The Death of 'Superman Lives': What Happened?" on the patio of the Hilton Bayfront Hotel, overlooking the San Diego Bay.

Directed by Jon Schnepp, this feature-length documentary film focuses on the 1996 Warner Brothers’ “Superman Lives,” a film project which had Tim Burton attached to direct and Nicolas Cage as Superman. The documentary is packed with rare interviews, including director Tim Burton; screenwriter Kevin Smith; producers Jon Peters and Lorenzo diBonaventura; production designer Rick Heinrichs; special effects artist/designer Steve Johnson, and costume designer Colleen Atwood, just to name a few. "The Death of 'Superman Lives': What Happened?" explores what could have been one of the most exciting Superman movies ever made and why it failed.
