Garland's Film Fury

British author ALEX GARLAND has disowned a new movie version of his novel THE TESSARACT after producers changed the film's location.

Garland's book was set in the Philippine capital Manila - but the movie, starring VELVET GOLDMINE actor JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS, has been moved to Bangkok, Thailand.

A source says, "He should be grateful someone is interested - the novel got terrible reviews - but he won't have anything to do with it."
