    Folks-
    Here's a pretty interesting article from the NY Times on the infighting between Martin Scorcese and Harvey Weinstein over the final cut of the film:

    I hope Scorcese wins this fight and gets his version in theaters. It's gratifiying to know that both Scorcese and DiCaprio cared so much about the film that they gave up part of their paychecks to make sure they could make it even better. Hopefully Harvey Scissorhands will see the light and let them finish the film (and maybe even give them back some of their money?).

    Both Variety and TV Guide are reporting today that the final cut has been locked (subject to final tweaking and a possible reshoot of the ending), and the film will be released at Christmas.

    Hmm. I thought this thread was going to have something to do with Jimmy Stewart and Ernest Borgnine. [​IMG]
