I'd be shocked if they had looked at his earlier stuff (Feebles, Bad Taste, Braindead). I think you're giving Hollywood execs far too much credit to assume that the people signing the checks and making the decisions would sit down and screen a director's entire catalog.

If that were the case, Kevin Smith would never have been signed on to write that Superman script.
