Dying of the Light - Protests Start to Heat Up

Paul Schrader is Joined by Cage and Winding Refn

In late September, it was reported that Paul Schrader's new film Dying of the Light had a rocky post-production that ended in Schrader being removed from the final cut. However, a standard clause in Schrader's contract prohibited him from publicly speaking out about the issue. The situation isn't that easy since the studio explained that Schrader delivered a cut of the movie that significantly differed from the script that he wrote and got greenlit by Lionsgate in the beginning.

Still, further well-known participants of the project took sides with Schrader. Apart from the actors Nicolas Cage and Anton Yelchin, co-producer Nicolas Winding Refn (e.g. Drive) has joined in the somewhat silent but still visible protest by wearing the same t-shirt that cites the clause in Schrader's contract that makes him go silent.

"We lost the battle. "Dying of the Light," a film I wrote and directed, was taken away from me, reedited, scored and mixed without my input. Yesterday Grindstone (a division of Lionsgate) released the poster and the trailer. They are available on line. Here we are, Nick Cage, Anton Yelchin, Nic Refn and myself, wearing our "non-disparagement" T shirts. The non-disparagement clause in an artist's contract gives the owners of the film the right to sue the artist should the owner deem anything the artist has said about the film to be "derogatory." I have no comment on the film or others connected with the picture."

In the US, Dying of the Light starts on December 5th, 2014. It stars Nicolas Cage as a CIA agent who's been pushed aside because of a beginning dementia. But he is reactivated when a terrorist resurfaces after he was assumed dead.
