David Moreau Talks “The Eye” Debacle

French director David Moreau has spoken rather candidly about his experience with Hollywood when he directed 2008’s Jessica Alba-led Japanese horror remake “The Eye”.

Talking with Marc Fennell for SBS’ The Feed, Moreau has only praise for his star Alba but calls the rest of the experience the “worst” of his professional career. The first issue came with Alba’s handlers and their ridiculous coddling of the star.

The more damning quotes though are about the editing, indicating the film was essentially taken off him because the studio didn’t like what he did – so “the movie that you saw is not the movie that you did”.
