Superman I (1978)
Main article: Superman (film) In 1973 , producer Ilya Salkind convinced his father Alexander to buy the rights to Superman. They hired Mario Puzo to pen a two-film s–cript , and negotiated with Steven Spielberg to direct , though Alexander Salkind rejected him as Jaws went over budget.[1] Marlon Brando and Gene Hackman signed on to play Jor-El and Lex Luthor respectively , and Guy Hamilton was hired to direct. However , Brando was faced with an obscenity lawsuit in Italy over Last Tango in Paris , and Hamilton was unable to shoot in England as he had violated his tax payments. The Salkinds hired Richard Donner to direct the film. Donner hired Tom to polish the s–cript , giving it a serious feel with Christ-like overtones.[2] Christopher Reeve was cast as Superman , having initially failed to impress the Salkinds before bulking up.[1] Brando meanwhile , despite spending less than two weeks on the shoot , [1] and not even reading the s–cript until then , [2] earned $3.7 million up front , plus 11.75% of the gross profits from the film.[1] The film was a success both critically and commercially , being released during the Christmas season of 1978 it did not have much competition , leading the producers to believe that this was one factor in the film s success.
