December 16, 2005: Singer & Burns to Make Superman Documentary

Superman Returns director Bryan Singer has engaged documentary director Kevin Burns to make Look Up in the Sky: The Amazing Story of Superman, Variety reported.

Singer will executive-produce with Burns and is working with Warner Brothers on ambitious plans to get the feature-length documentary a theatrical release and a TV viewing before Warner unveils Superman Returns on June 30, the trade paper reported.

Singer met the documentary maker when the helmer was a film student and told Variety that he always wanted to do a documentary with Burns. Singer loved Cleopatra: The Film That Changed Hollywood, which Burns directed with Brent Zacky, and the Burns-helmed Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy.

The TV cut of the documentary would include a scene from Superman Returns and will also likely end up either on the DVD release of Superman Returns or in a freestanding DVD of its own.

Burns has already done 40 interviews with artists and actors from the various Superman films and TV shows and told Variety that he'll deliver the film by the end of April.
