Problemen rond peperdure Tarzan-film


Studio Warner Bros. zit met een probleem. Regisseur David Yates is namelijk nog niet klaar met zijn $180 miljoen kostende Tarzan-film. Hij moet echter binnenkort ook al beginnen aan Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The Hollywood Reporter liet weten dat er gemengd gereageerd wordt door bronnen binnen de studio. Een Warners executive liet weten:

“While it’s somewhat unusual, we are extremely comfortable with the production timelines, which were set in advance, and have total confidence in the skill of David Yates — who is a four-time Harry Potter director — to deliver both of these pictures.The schedule of the J.K. Rowling movie got in the way of an appropriate postproduction schedule on Tarzan. Why would you ever crowd a director into starting a movie before his other movie is properly finished?”

Een anonieme insider:

“Notwithstanding that Tarzan isn’t a cheap movie, the [Beasts] series is clearly one of Kevin’s three planks in his platform. At Warner Bros. right now, anything pales in comparison to those three silos. When things aren’t working, everybody seems stupid. And when it works, they all seem like geniuses.”
