Rossio, Spotnitz Blog Their Reactions
Blogs can be revealing as creators tend to sound off when executives to tell the press one thing or another. Take for example; Pirates of the Caribbean co-scribe Terry Rossio. After all the hubbub at Disney’s recent press announcement about a fourth installment, he posted the other day:
“For the record, none of the recent Pirates 4 rumors have any truth, including the so-called record 50 million dollar payday for Depp.
“Some pretty funny stuff, though. Sacha Cohen? Tim Burton? Studios are way too protective of their franchises for that sort of thing.”
And now that Tom Rothman, head of 20th-Century Fox, has said he’s actually open to a third X-Files feature, despite the poor reaction to this summer’s movie, producer Frank Spotnitz was inundated with links from fans, wanting a reaction.
His response to the fans: “I was encouraged to read Tom Rothman’s remarks as well. I anticipated the studio would wait until after the release of the DVD to make any decision regarding a third movie, but I will let you know if we end up having any news before then.”
