Finally, it's the surfaced script you've been waiting for: "Superman Lives," from Kevin Smith. That's right: the director in the XXL hockey jersey behind iconic films like "Clerks," "Mallrats," and "Dogma," was once given the reins to pen a screenplay about the ultimate American superhero.
Granted, the script [via The Sports Hero] is copyrighted 1997, so there's no official word if "Chasing Amy"'s Joey Lauren Adams was in talks to play Lois Lane, but that's not necessarily something we would have contested. Because, man, how we miss you, JLA. Get More »

The mini-industry of movies, comics, podcasts, and inflammatory Tweets that is Kevin Smith has become a controversial figure in the film community of late. He's become a pro-marijuana, anti-movie critic writer-director in an extended state of pre-retirement, unafraid to speak his mind whether he's being ejected from a plane for being too fat or premiering his new film at Sundance.
That new film, Smith's take on religious backwoods horror called "Red State," was originally scheduled to be auctioned off, then the director announced he would self-distribute, and finally settled on Lionsgate releasing it on Video-On-Demand and DVD. Get More »
