Is it wrong for Netflix to finish Orson Welles' final film?
Producer Frank Marshall worked on the original film, and will be involved in the completed version for Netflix.
According to the Guardian, he said:
I can’t quite believe it, but after 40 years of trying, I am so very grateful for the passion and perseverance from Netflix that has enabled us to, at long last, finally get into the cutting room to finish Orson’s last picture.
Leave it alone, critics say.
