Putin Axed From Kursk Movie

Far from the Madding Crowd director Thomas Vinterberg will direct an English-language film about the real-life events of 2000 when an explosion (the Russians at the time maintained it was accidentally rammed by the SSN 691 Memphis , but I somehow think this won’t get mentioned) on board caused the Russian Kursk submarine to sink in the Barents Sea, prompting a desperate struggle to save those on board.

Lea Seydoux will join Matthias Schoenaerts and Colin Firth in the cast.

However, alterations have been made to the movie and scenes originally intended to be filmed featuring Vladimir Putin will now be axed entirely from the movie.  The decision has come from EuropaCorp president Luc Besson, who has said that he wants to remove the political element from the movie.

Sounds to me that rather than politics being removed, they were actually inserted…

    I don’t believe The Kursk was rammed…Underfunding led to design flaws,…. poor maintenance, lack of training caused the disaster…Putin’s pride meant he would not ask for help …The terror of being held individually responsible did the rest..It meant no one would even admit there had been a disaster until it was too late , never mind actually taking action…..a symbol of the degradation of the Russian statesociety..
    Don’t know about this movie..The director is an interesting choice but I’m no fan of Besson’s…..

    Personally, I’d put Putin in my movie any fucking day, the fucker’s got the balls our own supposed “leaders” don’t have. If Sensei Seagal says he’s okay, then that’s good enough for me.
