It may feel wrong... but you know it's right!

All kinds of trouble during the preproduction (Deutch out-Coolidge in-Deutch in) and it shows, Stoltz and Deutch didn´t speak.
Did you get this from the Hughes book? Expand on this please! I never knew about Coolidge being in (I find her a little annoying but I think she's a great Director).

Ok, here we go [Smile]

John had a script called Oil and Vinegar about a couple driving across country to attend a wedding. A talkathon film and both Broderick and Ringwald were interested.
So, Deutch grew frustrated in the casting process with Some Kind of wonderful and wanted to do Oil and vinegar and told this to Hughes. He got fired.

Enter Coolidge and the two had a great time working together, she says.
Masterson and Stoltz were already in and she cast Kim Delaney as Amanda and Kyle MacLachlan as Hardy Jenns.

The monday before the thursday start she got fired. "It was nothing you did" said executive producer Michael Chinich.
Soon she found out that Deutch was already interviewing replacement actors.
Delaney out-Thompson in, MacLachlan out- Sheffer in and they also wanted to replace Stoltz but big boss Ned Tanen said no.
John never called Coolidge to explain why he let her go. She was given another movie and we all know that was Plain Clothes.

Well, that´s the four pages story short. Some more details in the book of course and i say you should get the book, Logan. It´s pretty interesting stuff.

I did mean to get it ages ago, but some of the Amazon reviews were mixed.

Her casting choices are interesting. Why did she get fired though?

Plain Clothes was a good movie too, so maybe it's a double win for the movie world. She does a commentary on the new DVD.
