Stone Plans Fourth Cut of "Alexander". Re-re-re-polishing a turd.

Now, Stone says: "Iím going to go back next year actually. Iíve been asked by Warner Brothers because they did so well with ĎThe Final Cutí. They actually sold more than a million copies. Theyíve asked me to go back next year and do a fourth version. Frankly, itís a movie about history and I just feel like I can add something more. I wouldnít do it otherwise."

The key difference with the new cut isn't more additions, but subtractions: "I donít need more footage. I want to cut it down now because I added too much. I want it to come back a little bit. Thereís some trimming [needed]."

Talk about blatantly admitting that it's just a cash grab. Holy geezus, they don't even give a shit anymore because they know someone, somewhere is going to buy it. Damn...so, how about this instead..you just post on a website the 'suggested' spots I should fast-forward through and I'll 'consider' it...and save $20...asshole...
