Not sure where he got Emmerich from. Just to set the record straight it was Jon Peters (one of the producers) who was apparently obsessed with giant spiders, so I guess his point kind of stands- Sonnenfeld was clearly okay to shoehorn a giant mechanical spider into the film at a producers request, which a good director likely wouldn't have been.
What teh fuck has Roland Emmerich got to do with Wild Wild West.
Totally. The amount of films ruined because of the above is becoming much more common sadly.
A director who would happily do what the producers want is quite attractive in the days of test screenings being so important. I bet they bend to anything, they don't seem to be the protective type.
I wonder if he came from the same class as the other hack Paul W.S. Anderson who ranks just as bad as Wiseman. How these two get jobs is beyond me considering how critically bad all their films are.....but people will pay for shite!
It also reminds me about Ronald Emmerich who was totally obsessed with Superman fighting a giant spider when on board for producing the now canned film in the 90s. Every director he approached told him to "Fuck Off" and the film ended up on the scrap heap....he then went away and brought us Wild Wild West .
Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and Emmerich was fuck all to do with it.
maybe you shoudl get your facts right before spouting off about shit directors and stick to fish fingers or fucking chicken in breadcrumbs
