First Brando, now Chris Reeve…

When Brando died, he left behind an embarassing voice track for an awful looking animated film. Apparently Kal-El is following in Jor-El’s footsteps… According to the New Jersey Star-Ledger:

Christopher Reeve’s last legacy to film will be an animated children’s feature by IDT that is expected to hit theaters in 2006. The 52-year-old actor was in the midst of directing an animated feature tentatively called “Yankee Irving” about a poor boy in the Depression who befriends Babe Ruth and delivers a game-winning hit for the Yankees. Animation was a perfect fit for Reeve because there was no need to go on location. IDT rigged up two large computer screens in Reeve’s home in Connecticut so he could monitor work done in the company’s studios in Newark, Canada and Israel.
