Troublemaker Answers Trouble Makers

Below is an official statement from Troublemaker studios, regarding the resurfacing rumours about Robert Rodriguez and his divorce - rumours that still result in me receiving 'news' e-mails from readers.

Elizabeth Avellan and Robert Rodriguez were separated long before the Grind House production began. Their separation and subsequent divorce were very amicable and they opted to continue as planned, and to produce the film together -- a decision they informed Bob and Harvey Weinstein (co-chairmen of The Weinstein Company, distributor of Grind House) about prior to the start of production on Grind House. Robert and Elizabeth plan to produce Sin City 2 together -- with Robert directing -- for Dimension Films in the coming months. The hiatus during the production of Grind House had nothing to do with Robert's personal life. On April 10th, 2006, after shooting for 5 weeks, Robert completed principal photography of the first phase of his segment of Grind House. He took a hiatus from shooting to assemble the footage he had already shot and determine his next steps in the production, which is the same successful approach he utilized with Sin City when he shot the film in two parts.

And now you know. Okay, everybody breathe. Noses out of Robert's and Elizabeth's (and Rose's) lives. And on with ours.

C'mon, Brendon, you know people just love this kind of gossip, it kinda makes up for not having a life of their own.

Frankly the poster just plain looks fake. The crap at the bottom just reeks of fakeness. Plus, of course, if you look at the poster in the shot of the one on the wall of Cameron's workshop, you can easily tell it's different.qcop
