Stone on Natural Born Killers and QT

“We did a lot of work on the script,” Stone said. “It was a story by this guy and we took it and we turned it inside out, and we turned it into something else. By that, I mean three of us. [Screenwriters] David Veloz, Richard Rutowski and myself. We worked very hard on it. People always confuse that and it annoys the shit out of me. So I just want to get that straight.”

The topic only seemed to fruther set Stone off, as the director continued on a spiel to major laughs from the sold out crowd.

“And by the way, it was a very complicated deal. These two [pointing to Don Murphy and referencing his producing partner Jane Hamsher] made it very difficult because there was a whole legal trail of shit with Mr. QT and blah blah blah. All the bad mouthing. I’m glad the film got made ... because nobody at Warner Bros. wanted to make this film. Nobody. Woody was the last choice on their list, thank God. And I got that by. You were number six or something and the other five, of course, passed.”
After all these year, Stone is still insecure about this film. ... ry-1246467
