Shep To Get ‘Supermensch’ Doc

Shep Gordon is about to get the documentary treatment from comedian Mike Myers, who is set to produce and direct “Supermensch” about the legendary music manager.

A&E IndieFilms, partnering with Myers for the flick, made it official July 22. Gordon, who has helped guide the careers of Alice Cooper, Luther Vandross, Blondie and countless others, gave his blessing to Myers after years of prodding by the comedian.


“I met Shep Gordon in 1991 on the set of ‘Wayne’s World.’ I thought he was a perfect combination of Brian Epstein, Marshall McLuhan and Mr. Magoo,” Myers told the New York Times. “I’ve been trying to get Shep to agree to let me make a movie about him for 10 years. Last year he finally said yes.”
