Palma And Film Boss Argue At Festival

Maverick director BRIAN DE PALMA shocked film fans after he became embroiled in a public war of words with the boss of his new movie. The Carrie filmmaker is furious photos of real life G.I.s wounded in Iraq have had their faces obscured on the end credits of his film Redacted, reports New York Daily News. Speaking at a Q+A at the New York Film Festival on Monday (08Oct07), he said, "Redacted is, in fact, redacted. The montage of photographs at the end, I had nothing to do with (obscuring the photos). It's because Mark Cuban, the man that financed this movie, was disturbed by them. Eamonn Bowles, president of Magnolia Pictures - the film's distributors - called the claims a lie, insisting, "It's a legal issue, and we're going to resolve it." De Palma snapped back, "Yes, we are, I felt my cut was violated, and I am seeking to have those pictures unredacted." The forthcoming film tells the story of U.S soldiers fighting in Iraq.
