CAMEROONED IN HOLLYWOOD

According to one of those New York magazines with "New York" in the title, Rambo II writer James Cameron, said the following to Arnold Schwarzenegger on the set of True Lies:

---
"Do you want Paul Verhoeven to finish this motherfucker?"
---

Now, it's unclear whether Cameron said "motherfucker" in reference to the movie, True Lies, or if he was actually calling Schwarzenegger a "motherfucker".

If it's the former, then, yes please Mr. Cameron, I would very much like to rewind history and have Paul Verhoeven finish (or just start over) True Lies.

While you're at it, would you mind handing over the Avatar project as well? Cool. Now go out diving somewhere with your camera and leave us alone.

Bye.

Wow. Did Cameron sleep with Mrs. Fox?

Ed Howard said...

Imagine Jamie Lee Curtis' head folding open like the woman suit in Total Recall! Or her eyes bugging out of her head as she hangs from a helicopter. The possibilities are staggering.

And for a second there I was confused as to why Jason was bringing Megan Fox into this. And then the "Mrs." hit me and I realized whose blog I was at. Man I'm out of it this morning.

Fox said...

Jason-

He could only be so lucky!

But I really don't have an fair opinion of the man's movies, I just find him to be a bit irritating, and... let's face it... a far inferior artist to Paul Verhoeven.

Fox said...

Ed-

There is also the bedroom stripper scene (I'm on the right movie, right???). That could be very condusive to some Verhoeven-ing up.

And, I've never said my wife wasn't Megan Fox, but I'm not saying she is either. (I guess that might make me Brian Austin Green).

>-P

True Lies is one of the great action comedies of the '90's!

If you're reading this, I appreciate you just the way you are, James Cameron. Thanks for making cinema magic for 25 years.

Craig said...

Didn't Ed Harris nearly drown on the set of "The Abyss" and vow to never work with JC again? Nothing to do directly with his movies, which I've generally enjoyed; I've just heard that on the set Cameron's quite the non-charmer.

Daniel Getahun said...

No no, see it was Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio who actually drowned, and then Ed Harris brought her back to life! All part of Cameron's charm.

But really, here is an amusing article that details Cameron's on-set behavior.

Fox said...

Geez... Daniel is like JC's (not THAT JC... not that there's anything wrong with that) number one fan. I respect that because I respect Daniel, but between you and me, it's kind of creepy how much he looooves James Cameron.

BTW, Craig, you got the story a bit wrong. It was Cameron's ego that Ed Harris was drowning in, not the water on set.

Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio... where is she now??? I used to find her attractive, but I often got her confused with Mary Stuart Masterson and Marlee Beth Matlin and that Italian lady from Rain Man ("He's a your braaather Charlie!!").

Daniel Getahun said...

I guess I did let my freak flag fly a little bit here. Might as well be out there with it - I'm on record on my blog with posts in praise of Titanic and The Abyss.

I think actresses began to drop their third name when the careers of those you list abruptly and essentially ended. Even the men are few, aren't they? Philip Seymour Hoffman and...?

I don't like Cameron OR Verhoeven. What do I win?

Fox said...

I don't like Cameron OR Verhoeven. What do I win?...

You win one of those Will Smith box sets that they sell at Target, and shit. You know, they have like Wild Wild West, Hancock, and Enemy of the State in them, or something.

bill r. said...

Sweet. I'd prefer the Tom Cruise one that has RISKY BUSINESS, TOP GUN, and A FEW GOOD MEN, but Will Smith is awesome, too. Still, I have to ask: where's I, ROBOT??

elgringo said...

All hail Verhoeven! And when I saw the first Avatar preview...I was more than disappointed. THIS is that I've been waiting a decade for? THIS is the movie that's going to rock the movie-making world to its core. Heh heh. I think not.
