Every so often in Hollywood, there become certain themes that seem to do very well at the box office, which leads to everyone jumping on the bandwagon and making their own movie based on the theme in a bid to make a quick buck. Over the past few years we have seen a whole host of zombie movies being released, with the majority of them doing very well.
This has become a bit of a problem for those in need of funding, who are not making anything like a zombie movie. Hollywood veteran Gary Oldman has a script for a movie he wishes to make but the English star has been having a lot of trouble getting the funding for his project, which he has recently been talking about.
Oldman told Playboy, "I've a script I've written called Flying Horse. It's about Eadweard Muybridge, the 19th century photographer who arguably invented cinema and had a very interesting life. It's been nearly two years trying to get money."
He then went on to admit that he knows what the biggest problem is for the project, adding, "I have my cast pretty much, but the funding isn't there. Partly, it's the subject. If it had zombies and Leonardo DiCaprio in it, people would be falling over me."
Not finished their though, Gary Oldman then went on a rant about awards season, claiming that people are scared to say what they really think, and vote the way that they would really like to, which ultimately makes a lot of the awards ceremonies meaningless.
Do you think Gary Oldman has a point?
