We recently spoke with film composer Robert Folk about his tenure on the re-edited version of Roland Joffe’s epic, There Be Dragons. As a follow-up to that interview, film director / producer / wiz-kid James Ordonez provides us with the inner workings of the film’s progress from religious biopic to ambitious drama.

Ordonez has taken the time to give WhatCulture an exclusive journey into the re-invention of Joffe’s project. The film bombed on release, and despite some positive reviews, it sank into the abyss of nothingness. Despite this firm rejection, Ordonez was unwilling to let the film die, and took this opportunity to help revive it. Join us now as Ordonez tells us about controversial beliefs, onset spats and the millions spent to redeem a potential modern classic.
