There are all sorts of horror stories in the world. And then there’s making a microbudget movie with Lindsay Lohan. Stephen Rodrick reports in the NYT. And here’s the line that will stick with me:
Schrader smiled for the first time all night. He started talking about “The Misfits,” a 1961 film written by Arthur Miller and directed by John Huston. The film featured the final performances of both Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe. The shoot was torturous, 50 days morphing into 90, with Monroe spending a week in the hospital during filming.
“We’re making ‘The Misfits’ on a microbudget,” Schrader joked.
