Singer to Produce Superman Documentary

Bryan Singer will executive produce a Kevin Burns documentary on the Man of Steel.
Kevin Burns has been hired by Superman Returns director Bryan Singer to produce a documentary called "Look Up in the Sky: The Amazing Story of Superman."

Singer hopes to get the feature-length documentary into movie theaters and onto the WB before his film debuts June 30.

"I have such an admiration for the evolution of the character and what Superman has represented over nearly eight decades," Singer said. "I wanted a document that respects the legacy and the collective consciousness of Superman."

A TV broadcast would show a cut of the film that includes a scene from the new movie. The documentary will also likely end up either on the DVD release of Superman Returns or in a free-standing DVD version, according to Variety.

"The two projects serve each other, and I think the time is right to tell a story of evolution and survival," Singer said.

Burns, who has already done 40 interviews with artists and actors from the films and TV-series incarnations, said he'll deliver the film by the end of April, the trade says.
