Furie, setting out to make a Saturday matinee serial style of adventure film, surfaces with the script for Iron Eagle (1986). Funded by the fledgling Tri-Star Pictures, Furie shoots the film in Israel with recent Academy Award winner Louis Gossett Jr. Although critically ripped to shreds, the film succeeds at the box office and also makes money through video sales and rentals. Furie then agrees to direct Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) for Cannon Films. As a result of dire budget constraints and a script he was not allowed to alter without the permission of a difficult Christopher Reeve, the film becomes a disaster of the first order, going down in the books as one of the most notoriously bad sequels in movie history.
