The Christopher Reeve Story’ Gets September Theatrical Release

co-DC Chief Peter Safran just told Cinemacon attendees that the Warner Bros Sundance acquisition, Super/Man: The Christopher Reeve Story is getting a September theatrical release.

No exact date was specified.

Safran showed a very moving trailer with Reeve’s son’s distress after the horse accident, the actor’s connection to pal Robin Williams and his prep for his role as the Man of Steel in the 1978 Richard Donner classic movie Superman.

Warners snapped up the docu for $15M out of the Park City, UT festival as Deadline first told you.

Super/Man is directed by Ian Bonhote, and Peter Ettedgui and written by the two of them and Otto Burnham. The film is backed by Words + Pictures (a North Road company), Passion Pictures and Misfits Entertainment. The docu features never-before-seen home movies and extraordinary personal archives to reveal how Reeve went from unknown actor to iconic movie star as the ultimate screen superhero. He became an activist after suffering from the horse riding accident that left him quadriplegic and dependent on a ventilator to breathe.
