Only Human was a screenplay in development by the Jim Henson Company and Columbia TriStar in 2001. Written by Ken Kaufman, the concept was an inversion of the Superman mythos. A human family, convinced that the Earth is doomed, send their baby into space for safety. The child lands on a planet where everyone else possesses superpowers.
The logline as listed in Baseline Studio Systems:
|“||As the world nears destruction, an earthling baby is sent to live on Superman's home planet, Krypton.||”|
David H. Steinberg was later brought in for rewrites, but the project has yet to see the light of day.
