E’ The Hollywood Reporter a svelare i retroscena della lavorazione, ancora non terminata, di The Revenant, il nuovo film del premio Oscar, Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu, di cui la settimana scorsa abbiamo ammirato il primo trailer.

Secondo fonti riservate, l’hybris di Inarritu e l’incompetenza di uno dei produttori, Jim Skotchdopole, ha portato il budget da 90 milioni a 135 nei lunghi mesi di riprese e l’interruzione prevista da due a sei settimane.

Inarritu ha voluto girare il film nella foresta canadese solo con luce naturale ed in sequenza, i suoi produttori non hanno saputo dirgli di no e questo ha trasformato il set in “a living hell“.

Secondo alcuni membri della troupe: “You’ve got to let the director know: We can’t do that. We have no money or time in the schedule”.

Sul set “It’s 4 o’clock, and you’ve got an hour and a half of daylight, and it’s not the light he wants to shoot in. If you want to seamlessly stitch [the footage] together, it’s not going to match. We’d never shoot what we blocked. Everything was indecisive….”

Questo ha alla fine portato, secondo le fonti di THR, all’allontanamento di Skotchdopole dal set.

Inarritu ha risposto alle accuse: “I have nothing to hide. There were problems, but none of them made me ashamed. As a director, if I identify a violin that is out of tune, I have to take that from the orchestra.” 

“There was something very positive about shooting in those conditions, to understand what those guys [from the 1820s] went through. We don’t have adventures anymore. Now people say, ‘I went to India … it’s an adventure.’ No: We have GPS, a phone, nobody gets lost. Those guys really were in a huge physical, emotional adventure in the unknown territory. After you see what these guys went through, you understand what pussies we are: Our apartment is not at the right temperature, there is no ham in the fridge, and the water is a little cold … When did that happen?

“Actors were not in sets with green screens and laughing. They were miserable! And they really feel the fucking cold in their ass! They were not acting at all!”

E tu, cosa ne pensi?
