Today is the 73rd birthday of producer Jon Peters, mostly known for his bizarre fucking love of giant spiders. He kept trying to insert giant spiders into every movie he produced, most infamously the unproduced Superman Lives.
(The second part should show up when this video is done. I’d embed it too but too many embeds fuck with the users here, especially mobile ones. Also, Smith quotes some homophobic language from Peters in here, so just a warning ahead of time.)
Though Superman Lives is the most infamous example, he did this with other movies as well. He tried to insert a giant spider fight into an eventually cancelled Sandman movie. He eventually got his wish with that fucking terrible Wild Wild West movie.
Hope you all have fun posting here tonight and have a great night.
