To get the main part of that film, he had to defeat great names of the big screen of all the times, such as: Robert Redford, Sylvester Stallone and Clint Eastwood. After starring in Richard Donnol's super-movie, he wrote the script for Superman IV in 1987. In the middle of the 90's, Christopher Reeve's agenda was very busy: movie, television and theatre.
