The manic Williams would provide you with new strains in each take, Columbus recalled.

“I might be open to possibly doing a documentary in regards to the making of the movie, and enabling individuals to see sure scenes re-edited in an R-rated model,” Columbus stated. “The issue is, I don’t recall most of it. I solely know what’s within the film at this level as a result of it’s been a very long time. However I do bear in mind it was outrageously humorous materials.”
