Clash with film bosses

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

DI­REC­TOR Louis Leter­rier has lashed out at Warner Bros ex­ec­u­tives for risk­ing his rep­u­ta­tion as a film­maker by rush­ing to con­vert his Clash of the Ti­tans re­make, star­ring Aus­tralian ac­tor Sam Wor­thing­ton, into a crit­i­cally panned 3D block­buster. Pro­mot­ing his new movie Now You See Me in an in­ter­view with web­site The Huff­in­g­ton Post, Leter­rier calls his 2010 movie ‘‘fa­mously hor­ri­ble’’, in­sist­ing movie bosses rushed to add 3D as ‘‘a gim­mick to steal money from the au­di­ence’’. The Trans­porter film­maker claims film ex­ec­u­tives forced him to take the blame af­ter the an­cient Greek ac­tion epic was panned but now he in­sists the fin­ished prod­uct was not the film he signed on to make. ‘‘I was lit­er­ally thrown un­der the bus,’’ he says.
