It sounds like he was just sharing it with a few friends to get feedback. Did they tell him it sucked and he quit? Hope not!
I’m very pleased with the results so far. How has it been going? I always wanted to have a cut of the movie with these old school deleted scenes put back in where they originally would have belonged, even if they’re not super clean.
Now then, who has a complete version of the Declan Mulholland Jabba scene to go with it? Every version of it I’ve seen has those tv station borders/logos burned in…
Seriously though, Grindhouse Star Wars was magic for me, because of the sheer number of deleted scenes that were packed in there, but obviously it was turned into a different story entirely. So a project like this still has serious value. Hope it isn’t dead!
