Whore Director - The Interview

After several weeks of making calls and dealing with agents and production companies, I was finally able to track down Whore Director.

This was quite an honor, I mean look at the guy's filmography. I have been trying to interview this guy for a long time.

filmography - director
Halloween (2007) (pre-production)
Charlie And The Chocolate Factory (2005)
Bewitched (2005)
Rollerball (2002)
Red Dragon (2002)
Planet Of The Apes (2001)
Psycho (1998)
The Vanishing (1993)

P - Hello.

WD - Hello.

P - Wow, first let me say it's an honor.

WD - Well, thank you.

P - Where do I begin? First, let me compliment you on your body of work. Quite a list. And all unoriginal.

WD - Thanks. I pride myself on riding the coat-tails of great writers and directors.

P - How did you get into Whore Directing?

WD - Well, like they say, it's not what you know, it's who. I used to be a hairdresser in LA for this movie producer and he liked the way I cut his hair. Next thing you know, I'm remaking masterpieces.

P - What a great story. It must give great hope to the truly talented up and coming filmmakers out there that a hack like you can make it.

WD - I hope so. I mean, if I can make it in Hollywood...

P - Okay, I've been dying to ask you this question.

WD - Shoot

P - Do you have any original thought whatsoever?

WD - Nope. Not one original thought. I mean, why would I? There's loads of stuff already out there for me to affix to like a leach. There was one time a few years back, I think it was a day in March where for a second I thought I had something, but I was mistaken.

P - So when you're remaking a great movie, do you ever think you're going to remake it better than it was before?

WD - Absolutely not. (laughs) I mean, I'm not making art here. I'm making money.

P - (laughs) silly me. So what's next on the horizon?

WD - Halloween is in Pre-Production. And I'm thinking about remaking The Birds.

P - So is nothing sacred?

WD - Not since Ted Turner started colorizing.

LOL AWESOME!!!!

Sad thing is that, if any Hollywood types read this, they wouldn't get the point. They'd probably call their agent and try to arrange a power lunch with the guy...

"Absolutely not. (laughs) I mean, I'm not making art here. I'm making money."

Painfully true.

They seem to be the rule rather than the exception.
