Styler Gets Movie Off Ground After Five Years

STING's wife TRUDIE STYLER has hit out at Hollywood "yes men" who fail to keep their promises - after her movie project fell through twice. Styler's new movie A GUIDE TO RECOGNISING YOUR SAINTS stars ROBERT DOWNEY JR., who she credits for getting her involved, despite the struggle which followed. She says, "It was a very personal film for me to get involved with. Robert Downey Jr brought it to me, with the idea that he would star in it and I would produce it and that's pretty much what happened. "But it was dogged with so much bad luck, bad energy and bad people around it - and I don't say that lightly, but the movie industry is full of people who say yes, and then fall out at the last minute, along with their money, and when you lose a pot of money, the whole deck of cards comes tumbling down. "And that didn't happen to us just once or twice - it was only on the third go that we made it."
