February 9, 1999: Superman Lives Shelved!

Corona's Coming Attractions may have the biggest scoop yet on the project, coming from someone claiming to work in Warner Brothers' publicity department. Claims the informant, "it appears the top brass held an informal, at-somebody's-house meeting ... and decided a few things about WB's future schedule. ... But here's what you really want to know: there was an order on my desk this morning to destroy ALL PUBLICITY MATERIALS, PROSPECTIVE OR OTHERWISE, for Superman Lives. The project has been shelved because of an unnecessarily escalating pre-production budget ($103.4 million has been spent to date), and the PTB are tired of delays. So, I guess you can all let your collective breath out, because Superman Lives, for now, ain't flyin' nowhere." [I guess time will tell].
