WE DID IT!!!! Thanks to everyone who pledged support, I'll be making the documentary "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?"!!!!

Now, with four days left, I'm going to be asking every single backer to help spread the word so we can reach the stretch goal, and I can make the recreated scenes from the film, have Bear McCreary do the orchestral score, and really push this feature film over the edge!!!!

Thank you everyone once again!!!! I will be posting a video update on the final pledge upgrades, and also thanking you all again in the video post!!!!

      @Christopher Adcock - Ah! I see now. Then it is safe to say the documentary is now official, it will happen. For the recreation scenes perhaps not though. Unless as you say, if he finds a away to get money elsewhere. Still three full days to go, so we'll find out soon enough then.

      By the way, I found a fake poster of Superman Lives but can not past it here as there is no "share" for pictures. So here is the link for the link for the poster. Did you know Tim Allen was going to be brainiac, that's so weird.

      Congrats! I really wanted to see this project succeed because my dad is a big Superman fan. Can't wait to see the completed project.

      He may use paypal to extend the campaign behind kickstarter, with the intention of raising money for the recreated scenes.

      @Luke Hays - The stretch goal is $148,000. We still have about $50,000 to go if Jon's going to recreate the scenes from the script. As it stands this Kickstarter has earned enough money to make the documentary itself, but not enough for the recreated scenes. Unless he finds money elsewhere to do it.

      WooOOooOO! I've been feverishly watching this Kickstarter with high hopes but I was nervous that it may not actually happen. I'm excited for this Mr. Schnepp!

      For the recreation scenes see if Nick Cage wants to be involved.

      Didn't we hit the stretch goal already? We're over $98,000, we're currently $98,520, looks over the stretch goal to me.....YEAH!

      Finally! This one was taking FOREVER to hit it's goal, even though it got, like, 4/5 of the way there weeks ago. Since Project Awakened looks like it's going to fail, I'll bump up my pledge here to celebrate. I do hope we hit the stretch goals! If you do get to recreate scenes from the movie, I hope you pick a good Superman. Michael O'Hearn, who played Superman in the World's Finest fanfilm (trailer) - and also was Titan on NBC's 2008 American Gladiators - is an awesome Clark/Superman. Just throwin' that out there. For anyone who hasn't seen the World's Finest trailer:…
