This is actually a pretty terrific interview. It's easy for them to reduce it to soundbites, but there are some great anecdotes and insightful comments throughout the conversation.
Maybe every day is Saturday morning.

He's just a bitter idiot. It's a shame, because he's also a very talented actor and director (love both his movies as director), but it must be horrible to be around him. The minute you turn your back to him, he'll call you a faggot and talentless person. That's many things, but cool really is not one of them.

:laughing: This won't be doing him any favors:

Vincent Gallo Wasn't Meant To Direct 'Promises Written in Water,' Stole The Picture From Inept Newb?
via: The Playlist
 
Ok, "stole" might be a harsh word. Vincent Gallo's upcoming film, "Promises Written in Water" originally wasn't a project he was supposed to direct. And that wasn't even the original title.

In fact, the actor/filmmaker/musician was just hired initially to just star in Pete Red Sky's "The Funeral Director," as was Alison Lohman who eventually dropped out. But Gallo eventually took a producing credit and helped bring in the rest of the (mostly unknown) cast.

From there, production began and the director evinced his inexperience and lack of confidence on set and the irascible and impatient Gallo would chew him out on set, halt production and then have closed-door meetings with the other producers to hash things out in private.

To make a long story short, Red Sky was then given the boot and Gallo took over as director and he obviously retitled the film. But is Gallo trying to pass it off as his own work? Movieline has the story in all its gory details, however, they are word for word pretty much the exact details we were sent a few days earlier, but decided not to publish (it's not that we didn't believe them, they were from a source who worked on the picture during the production, it just felt a little... not for us... so we decided to pass or at least hold until it was somehow applicable).

Is someone trying to smear Gallo? Or did the source just not find a bite and move on to the next player who was interested in the story (which hey, cool, no harm no foul)? It's hard to tell, but we suppose, yes it is a pretty interesting (if scurrilous) story. If you're a Gallo fan or a love/hater, the stories worth reading. The man seems like a scoundrel through and through, but what can we say? We still kinda adore the man. He gives good quote. The picture was rumored to appear at Cannes and that didn't happen. Maybe the Director's Fortnight? Yeah, we could buy that.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Movieline has the story in all its gory details,

that movieline article is quite a read.

it seems that there is no end to the douche baggery of gallo. we should probly stop wasting our time on ratner and move onto gallo-bashing. his face would be even more hilarious on any number of mashed up posters.

i feel sorry for Pete Red Sky. if you're wondering why his name is weird like that it's because he seems to be of american indian heritage. his early shorts were acclaimed only in that small niche and his first feature seems to have only got his foot in the door, which gallo has now well and truly slammed. what a jerk.

maybe the director really was a clueless newb, if he's to blame for anything it's to have been so stupid as to think gallo would be anything but a complete asshole on set.

he can't be that much of a douchebag if he was seizing movie from someone who names himself Pete RED SKY.

like i mentioned, the dude is native american.

i don't know any personally (i doubt there are even any in this whole country), but it's my understanding that this kind of description following a first name is typical of american indians/native americans. correct me if i'm wrong, but i think that's sufficient excuse for the dude to have a name like that.

Yup. Most Native Americans have names like that. Here on the reservations in New Mexico, when we go to the casinos to play blackjack it's not out of the ordinary to get a dealer with a name like Ricardo RUNNING BEAR or Milton RIVER JUMPER.

I live in a Native American community and yea, the local casinos have Native dealers who take on those names, but I also know a lot of Native American people who will get jobs out there and take a tribal name to just fit the job description. Some are more interested in their history than others. It's wide ranging but those who take it seriously and have had a name since their youth, it's a huge honor.
