Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia This film was taken away from director Paul Schrader in post-production and re-edited by the producers. In October 2014 Schrader posted on his Facebook page: "We lost the battle. Dying of the Light (2014), a film I wrote and directed, was taken away from me, re-edited, scored and mixed without my input. Yesterday Grindstone (a division of Lionsgate) released the poster and the trailer." Schrader had already posted in September 2014 photos of himself, Nicolas Cage, Anton Yelchin and Nicolas Winding Refn wearing black T-shirts printed with the terms of the non-disparagement clause they had signed with the film's production company, Grindstone Entertainment Group: "No publicity issued by artist or lender, whether personal publicity or otherwise, shall contain derogatory mention of company, the picture, or the services of artist or others connected with the picture." Commenting on the photos Schrader further wrote: "Here we are, Nick Cage, Anton Yelchin, Nic Refn and myself, wearing our 'non-disparagement' T shirts. The non-disparagement clause in an artist's contract gives the owners of the film the right to sue the artist should the owner deem anything the artist has said about the film to be 'derogatory.' I have no comment on the film or others connected with the picture." Through their silent public protest Schrader, Cage, Yelchin and Refn have basically disowned this released version of their feature and encourage potential audiences not to see it. See more »
