Warner Brothers Execs quoted by author Bret Easton Ellis: "We don't care" about Batman movie script problems



In a way they're right because, if history shows anything, people will still shell out their hard-earned money to watch the next DC Universe abomination no matter how many times they've been disappointed. I trust Affleck with this, but, man, DC are milking/cash-cowing the living hell out of this. They can go home to the bank with their millions and not care an ounce about artistry or well-made produce. They've also sunk to new lows with 'Suicide Squad' and people still showed up for that film in DROVES. 

The original SOURCE

Bret Easton Ellis in his own words:

"I was having dinner with a couple of executives who know other executives who are working on the [forthcoming] Batman movie, The Batman. And they were just telling me that there are serious problems with the script. And that the executives I was having dinner with were complaining about people who work on the Batman movie. And they just said they went to the studio and they said, ‘Look, the script is … Here’s 30 things that are wrong with it that we can fix.’ And [the executives] said, ‘We don’t care. We don’t really care. The amount of money we’re going to make globally, I mean 70 percent of our audience is not going to be seeing this in English. And it doesn’t really matter, these things that you’re bringing up about the flaws of the script.’ So I do think global concerns play a big part in how movies, and what movies, are being made, obviously."
