Dying of the Light - Protests Start to Heat Up
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.
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.
