what happened between robert and rose… did they hook up or sumthin?
There should be a gossip thread for this but yeah, supposedly they did. The production got shutdown twice, supposedly. I’m not sure if that includes the planned hiatus between PT and DP. These are all rumors. For all I know, none of it is true. And remember how bad facts get twisted via the telephone game, so keep that in mind too. Also, I believe RR is getting divorced from his producer wife because of what happened. She still has a credit on the film though, as if that would dissappear but yeah, all this is for the rumor mill.
Oh wait, I just remembered the opening credit sequence of PT. It’s various shots of Rose, dancing at the strip club, to RR’s PT theme. She’s just dancing and dancing as the credits come and go.
As most of us know, RR’s wife’s is/was Elizabeth Avellan. Notice during what part of Rose’s dance Elizabeth’s credit appears? The 2nd time seeing it, I couldn’t help but consider the placement of her credit, as if it was RR’s way of either saying “I’m very sorry” or “good riddance.”
Even if the rumors were true why couldnt he be on the set with her?
I don’t know, but can only speculate. Ever been through a devastating break-up? Now, the break-up between his wife and him should be more devastating, since they’ve been married since the Mariachi days, like 17 years, but who knows why RR couldn’t be the DP on D.P. Like Seb says, rumors schmoomers.
What I’m really interested in is if QT really learned how to read a light meter because of this.
You know that cliche about how some of Hollywood’s most troubled productions become gems and the productions that go very smoothly often become clunkers? Well Planet Terror could be the former. Excellent, excellent film, despite the production grief.
