Se le puede hasta perdonar que tenga películas malas.
Se le puede hasta perdonar que se cargase algún proyecto interesante:
When most of us saw the ads for the Russell Crowe Robin Hood movie last year, the only reaction was, "What's the point?" This is a character that has been brought to the screen almost 100 times, according to IMDB, and the ads made it look like the same old shit. A blandly heroic Robin Hood shoots arrows at the evil soldiers who oppress the people while he presumably robs from the rich and gives to the poor (...)(Todo el artículo de Cracked.com mola: 6 Famously Terrible Movies That Were Almost Awesome)
So why did they even bother making it? Is this the best story to spend $200 million bringing to the screen? Well, it got made because the original script was apparently freaking amazing. It turns out the production of Scott's Robin Hood is ultimately the story of two films: the movie you saw... and a wholly abandoned project called Nottingham.
Nottingham would've been the single most original Robin Hood movie in history. (...) It was a totally different take on the story -- the Sheriff of Nottingham is the main character and protagonist. Shit gets real once the sheriff investigates a string of grisly murders in the area. The sheriff then pursues an assholish Robin Hood (Russell Crowe) for the crimes only to find out that Robin, while a dickhead, was actually being framed.
The film was to climax with an epic siege of the city of Nottingham between Prince John and King Richard, all while the Sheriff tries to discover the identity of the real killer using 12th century detective techniques (Reiff is a history buff and researched how actual killings in that era were investigated).
Then, director Ridley Scott came on board and said, "What is this shit? We're making a Robin Hood movie! Get all that standard Robin Hood stuff back in there. That's what everybody wants to see."
¡Pero lo que de ninguna manera debería quedar sin castigo es que trate de cargarse sus películas buenas!
After revisiting his classic Alien with the upcoming 3D Fox film Prometheus, Ridley Scott is committing to direct and produce a film that advances his other seminal and groundbreaking science fiction film. Scott has signed on to direct and produce a new installment of Blade Runner.El skrull se está pasando ya un pelo...
PD: no me lo puedo de creé. Creía que el skrull era cruel, pero es que además lo es con avaricia: uno de los dos guionistas de Prometheus es Damon Lindelof, que resulta ser también uno de los culpables de Perdidos.
