Mark Wahlberg On The Failure Of Tim Burton's PLANET OF THE APES
The actor who played the lead role in Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes, Mark Wahlberg, talks about what exactly went wrong with the film and if he saw the Rupert Wyatt-directed film...
While Planet of the Apes directed by Tim Burton was a box office success, many fans and critics felt that overall, it was a disappointing remake. Well, Mark Wahlberg, who had the leading role in the film, feels the same way. Talking to MTV, he said that the whole thing was rushed, and that the film was not ready to be released:
If he saw the Rupert Wyatt-directed film Rise of the Planet of the Apes:
"I haven't seen it yet, but I heard it was pretty damn good. Well, ours wasn't. It is what it is. Ours wasn't."
"They didn't have the script right. They had a release date before he had shot a foot of film. They were pushing him and pushing him in the wrong direction. You have got to let Tim do his thing."
But, according to Wahlberg, that was the best time he had on a film set:
"I have no better time on any movie than I had working with Tim. I had the most amazing time with Tim. I run to be on the set with him. We were doing reshoots, and he came out with me to Paris. We're in the club. Tim was in the club, man. Tim was in the club. Then he'd be drawing people, and all of his caricatures looked the same. He'd be drawing people in the club."
There you go. What did you think of Burton's Planet of the Apes?
