Scathing Letters

To: Roberta Hanley | From: Bob Shaye

To: Lorna Umphrey From: David Cronenberg Date: November 12, 2004 Hi Lorna, � Please let Roberta know that I agree completely with her letter to Bob Shaye re that fussy, petulant reader's report. It's a laugh. I wonder what that reader would have said about my script for Crash. � Best, David November 10, 2004 Robert Shaye New Line Cinema Dear Bob- Thank you for your kind attention regarding "London Fields" but the coverage was so bad that it was humorous in exposing a lack of intelligence from the reader. Thanks for the accuracy and the kind attention to detail. With respect to your occupation and mine, Roberta Hanley P.S. By the way, the inaccuracies are quite significant in the coverage, two of the characters mentioned in the script that were "killed off" were alive (mentioned in the script). And, please feel free to correct the coverage. cc: David Cronenberg ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- November 5, 2004 Roberta Hanley Muse Productions Dear Roberta, Thanks for sending on LONDON FIELDS, which does not appear suitable for us. I'm enclosing a copy of our critical coverage, in case it would be informing in any way. Sincerely, Bob Shaye cc: David Cronenberg
