London Fields - Producer Edited His Own Version
Even though his debut London Fields was despised by critics at TIFF, director Matthew Cullen isn't as self-destructing as others. But it's also a smaller film than Fantastic Four and directors are looked on more favorably when they don't deliver a strong indie production - especially when they're friends with giants such as Guillermo Del Toro and find others that speak out for them.
It all began with the New York Times that suggested that the final cut was done by producer Chris Hanley and that Cullen was not involved in the process. The film is based on Martin Ami's book and shows an apocalyptic future where an author (Billy Bob Thornton) searches for inspiration for a new book and meets sex bomb Amber Heard who can foresee death. Otherworldly and dismissed by critics all over.
Cullen claims to not having been paid for the movie and that he had to take another job. Producer Hanley claims otherwise but says that Cullen didn't deliver a final cut which is why he had to step in.
After this catastrophe, Cullen is supported by the actors. Johnny Depp, who took over a small role in the project that stars his wife Heard and intervened that Cullen could finish his film. No matter what version, it'll be interesting to see whether the arts fartsy apocalypse can find its following.
