It seems like Tarantino made his way into Hollywood and became a filmmaker worth watching, but he made sacrifices to make it, including selling his original work and watching others bring it to life. . This can be a great or missed experience for a screenwriter, especially when a new director changes their original work. The original “True Romance” ended with the death of Clarence (Christian Slater), which Scott changed, but Tarantino respects that rewrite and believes it was the right choice. However, Tarantino wasn’t happy about Stone’s changes to “Natural Born Killers”.
Tarantino sold “Natural Born Killers,” for $10,000 to producers Jane Hamsher and Don Murphy, this film must have been a steal as Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone was later hired to direct the film. Despite his enthusiasm for the project, Stone was unimpressed by certain elements of Tarantino’s story – so he rewrote it. In an interview with Roger EbertStone compared Tarantino’s original script to factory movies, and described Mickey (Woody Harrelson) and Mallory (Juliette Lewis) as “crazy, involved people”. He tells Ebert that the killers are the most intriguing part of the story, so he chooses to focus on them:
“I think [Tarantino] was so hurt that I rewrote it a lot. But I told him I couldn’t really do what he, a 26-year-old, would do as a first movie. As a 47-year-old filmmaker, that doesn’t interest me. I want another level of sociopolitical commentary and I want to deal with the entire justice system. I want to deal with murderers; Where do they come from, who are their parents. “
During a conversation with Ebert, Stone said that Tarantino was too focused on using “violence in the latest, most shocking and original way”, but Tarantino insisted that “Natural Born Killers” was about love.
