Ouch, 12-pages. They say that each page of a script represents approximately a minute of on-screen dialog, so that could mean a whole 12-minutes of the film was vaporized with nothing yet to fill the void. Vaughn and his crack team of writers--six in total now, including frequent collaborator Jane Goldman--are no doubt frantically scrambling to patch that gap, especially since principal photography is scheduled to begin in only a few weeks. A humble suggestion, if I may: if you're in a lurch, Mr. Vaughn, I'm sure the very creative writers over at FanFiction.net wouldn't mind tossing in their two-cents. Just an idea.
I saw Inception, which I loved...But my heart sank when I saw that a few of the ideas we had were up [on the screen]. So it's either leave it in and look as if you're copying or change things. We completely ripped out about 12 pages of the script and the storyboards.
