Quentin Tarantino is considered one of the best director’s in Hollywood at the moment and it appears that he has certain policies on his movie sets. Quentin has revealed how he is so aggravated with his scenes being ruined by phones, that he now has a strict no phone policy on his sets.
Talking to US chat show host Jay Leno, Tarantino explained, “Nobody can be anywhere around my camera with a cell phone. We actually have a Checkpoint Charlie (phone check point)... I've done scenes in movies and all of the sudden somebody's cell phone on the crew goes off and ruins the scene. That can't happen.”
He added, “We're here to do something, we're really conjuring up something, and I can't have my actors' acting, or anything that we're trying to do, be messed up by a cell phone. People can say, 'Oh, well I'll remember to put it on silent.' 'I'm not here to test your memory. We're here to do this. You will screw up everything we're doing.”
Quentin Tarantino’s new film Django Unchained, which stars Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Samuel L Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio, is set to hit the big screen on December 25 in the US before it is then released in the UK on January 18, 2013.
