Wes Responds

Three or four hours ago I did a six-minute sitdown with Fantastic Mr. Fox director Wes Anderson. One of the topics was Chris Lee‘s 10.11 L.A. Times piece that discussed complaints from Fox dp Tristan Oliver and director of animation Mark Gustafson.

One important-sounding point Anderson made was that Lee talked to Oliver, Gustafson amd himself last June, when relations were a little bumpy. The vibe smoothed out considerably after that, he says. On top of which he spoke to Oliver after hearing from Lee and repeated what he’d been told Oliver had said, and Oliver said he’d been misunderstood or misquoted.

An hour or so later Fox costars Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman did a square-table sitdown at a pub on the outskirts of town (i.e., Great Missenden).
