Scorsese's Feeble Budget Predictions

Director MARTIN SCORSESE grossly misjudged the budget for his latest movie THE AVIATOR when he predicted it would cost less than GANGS OF NEW YORK and ended up being more expensive.

The film-maker was confident he could keep expenditure down on his biopic of HOWARD HUGHES but accepts now his skills don't lie in finances - because he always fails to stick to the budgets he sets.

He tells British magazine TIME OUT, "I thought The Aviator would be smaller. And it turned out that it's maybe as big, maybe bigger than Gangs.

"But you think, 'Oh, I can do this.' You gloss over some of the more difficult aspects until you get on the set, you get into pre-production. Then you think, 'Oh my, this will take more planning than I thought."
