J. D. Shapiro has apologised for writing the notoriously bad Battlefield Earth after it won the Razzie award for Worst Movie of the Decade last month.
Shapiro explains that the reason for the script even being written was his quest for sex and the Church of Scientology whose founder wrote the novel Battlefield Earth is based on. Shapiro initially went to the Celebrity Centre of Scientology looking for eligible women to seduce and would up adapting a novel into a screenplay. Hollywood is weird.
Shapiro is a little bit proud of the film as “out of all the sucky movies, mine is the suckiest.”
When is Jeff Buhler going to apologise for The Midnight Meat Train?
