Since "Super CinemaScope" is sort of a made-up format, I suspect he is planning on shooting in regular 5-perf 65mm Super Panavision 70 and just calling it "Super CinemaScope". He's made no mention in the press of using anamorphic lenses on a 65mm camera (not that I can find). CinemaScope had a short-lived (two movies) format called CinemaScope 55 which involved 2X anamorphic lenses on a 55mm negative but otherwise, there was never a large format system involving CinemaScope lenses, just the 1.5X anamorphic lenses for the Technirama 8-perf format and the 1.25X anamorphic lenses for the Ultra Panavision 65mm format.

Your knowledge is reflexive and formidable, Dennis. Thanks again!

One ventures that he should have been more circumspect with his terminology. 'Super' is flat, 'Ultra' is anamorphic

Martin Hart of the American Widescreen Museum sent me a note correcting me (and Mark) -- I didn't know this, but CinemaScope 55, which involved making larger 2X anamorphic lenses to cover a 55mm squarish negative, was labelled "Super CinemaScope" on the lenses and on their 2X anamorphic projector lens.
And as I noted in the other thread, Taratino and Richardson are planning on using Ultra Panavision 70 (aka MGM Camera 65) after all, not Super Panavision.
