1999 Movie News Archives
November 22, 1999: Tim Burton Talks Superman LivesTim Burton has hit the publicity circuit to promote his new film "Sleepy Hollow", and in doing so has fielded questions about his other movie project... "Superman Lives". Burton is no longer involved with this film (if it still exists) but has said that nothing he was paid was worth what he went through in trying to get the film off the ground. Merchandising, he said, was the sole driving force behind the movie as far as the Powers-that-be were concerned, who after seeing Nicholas Cage in the classic Superman costume said they wanted to lose the red underpants, and instead wanted to swap them for red shorts (like those of a basketball player), they also were happy to keep the red boots as long as they had a lightning bolt down the side. Makes me wonder if they even know who Superman is?! *gulp!*
