Since when

has an official studio announcement of a film/director ever been less than glowing, even for films doomed from the beginning, that turned out to be bonafide turkeys? GDT has been out of the project for months now (an absolute eternity in studio-time), and it's not the Hollywood way to acknowledge anything other than the present moment, or that they ever meant to do anything other than they're doing now. Of course, we love GDT and we acknowledge him, but I'm not at all surprised the suits want to pretend than none of the near-disasters of the past few years ever happened. Put on the big happy face and smile for the camera everyone! Tongue

Honestly, they probably always did want PJ to direct. So did most fans, including a large number of regulars here at TORN, if you remember. If you don't remember, do a search here on the boards and see how many posts there were, ranting and wailing that if PJ wasn't directing the movies they wouldn't be worth watching. When he announced he wasn't going to, many people were very upset, even to the verge of panic. It took a while for a lot of people to get used to the idea of GDT. And once we got used to the idea and got to know him, most of us were very happy again. And then we lost him, and we were very sad. Again. And now we're readjusting to what we originally wanted. And most of us will be happy. Again.


"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."
