Drat !!. Oh well, common place in the world of motion pictures I suppose. It's their loss.

Botheration! Perhaps his work will show up as deleted scenes on the DVD though...

Re: Stone of Destiny

What a shame!
And I do agree with Helen - without Mr Lee, this movie is not interesting for me! People can be so silly, really true....

If that doesn't sum up what the main problem with Hollywood movies is, I don't know what does.

So the scriptwriter, the director and the producer have no say.

Well, it's to their loss, and the film will be the poorer for it.

Re: Stone of Destiny

That's really too bad. As Mr. Lee knows, this stuff happens literally all the time in the industry. It's a serious game of "Hurry up... and wait." coupled with many "Oh never mind "
Sigh. The worst part is that the talent is expected to be dependable when everyone else isn't.

This is a scandal that the director at least can't have anything to say about it. This happens in movies when it depends on money and not artistic quality. At least we have more of his projects to look forward to.

Re: Stone of Destiny

Yeah, I agree Joakim. But I still wanted Robert Carlyle and Christopher Lee in the same film.

Will his scenes be on the DVD being released in April, I wonder?
