As a fan of film, I love exploring behind the scenes. Reading about the production process, the special effects and the stories of what could have been.
In this special update of my article series of “What Could Have Been…” I bring you news of two new fan made documentaries look deeper into stories that I have also written about here at The Unheard Nerd.
Doomed: The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s “The Fantastic Four”
First we have Doomed, a documentary which looks at the inside story of the Fantastic Four film which has never officially seen the light of day (you can easily find it on YouTube). I previously wrote about this film in WCHB #9. This new trailer gives us a three minute sneak peek with snippets from everyone from the actors, director, special effects guys and even the man in charge, Roger Corman.
The film will be availbe to buy later this year. To find out more and to pre-order a copy visit the Doomed official site.
The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened?
In one of my earliest articles, WCHB #3, I talked about of of the most famous films that never went into production. This was of course Superman Lives, starring Nicholas Cage and was to be directed by Tim Burton. Over the years a few video clips and several pieces of artwork have surfaced revealing a glimpse of what this film could have been.
Now producer/director John Schnepp is just putting the finishing touches to his documentary. As you can see he has managed to obtain interviews with a lot of people involved including Tim Burton but alas there is no sign of Nicholas Cage.
John is asking the fans for a final $85,000 to finish the documentary which is now in post production. You can find out more by clicking here.
