KO's Val in Two Rounds, Part 2
of all, let me fill you in on the origin of these
receive these eMails from someone just intending
on filling ME in on the details of the happenings
occurring on the set of RED PLANET. The eMailer
(aka the "Battle Scarred Crew Member")
DID NOT WANT his/her eMail posted and I had to literally
beg to post his/her message.

goes to the "Battle Scarred Crew Member"
for the script review. 2/10/99
read the script review
of 'Red Planet' on your site... the script the reviewer
read was a very old copy, it went through several
more revisions before film saw any light of day.
It ended up being scripted by Chuck Pfarrer instead
of Lemkin, although most of the basic elements stayed
the film will more than likely be horrible.
basic review was more or less accurate, expect Armaggedon
and you won't be too
terribly surprised. The biggest problem the film
faces is that the script really went out the window
when we got to set, Kilmer just kind of made up
whatever he wanted to do and Anthony really didn't
have any power to do anything about it. So when
Kilmer and Sizemore began having their spat- and
they did, believe me, script went bye-bye to logistics.
started shooting whatever they could to have the
story still make sense. Sizemore even began to demand
that his character shouldn't die as the script dictates.
Try to work that one out. Realistically,
the film will more than likely be horrible. I do
have a copy of the script but I really shouldn't
let it get out of my hands until the film is released,
just to cover my ass.
just thought you'd like the info. Good luck....

just reread my message... you can post it if you
like, just be sure to have no inclusion of my name,
please. I have a lot more dirt about the production...
some of which really is hard to believe... but true,
since I witnessed it firsthand. This was the second
film I did with Val and the second one where it
became a free-for-all. When I have more time I'll
spill the beans, it's good dirt.
