Producer openly talked about the shooting of the legendary movie.

Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in “Pretty woman”


Cult film “Pretty woman”,
filmed 27 years ago and won the hearts of millions, as it turned out, needs
was to be not a romantic Comedy, and a grim film with a tragic
finale. This was told recently producer Jeffrey Katzenberg in
his recent interview. This information was reported

Katzenberg surprised everyone,
saying that the original manuscript was a common
sad story of a prostitute with Gollivudskogo Boulevard. Unlike
the final version of the film, the heroine played by Julia Roberts, must
was to be rude, uneducated and, in addition, complete
addict. Character inherited by Richard Gere, the original plan was
no better: constantly foul-mouthed, cruel and devoid of any
inclination to romance, he wasn’t supposed to fall in love with the heroine, Julia, but just
to hire her for the weekend, and then throw back on the street.

Called this movie should have been
“3000” — a sum it had to pay a character Gere for services
rendered him “pretty”. Moreover, this amount was initially a little less
only 2,000 dollars, and paying an extra thousand was compensation for the fact that the girl on
two days of staying away from drugs. And to end this story was the fact that
once back on the street, the heroine Roberts died from an overdose!

As told Katzenberg,
the Director of Pretty woman Garry Marshall loved the dark and realistic scenario. But when
it became known that for the production of the film came from Studio Silver Screen Partners, continuous partner of The Walt Disney Company. And on demand this film project was developed almost
in a fairy tale, that really upset the Director, and many others
participants of the project. Although it is difficult to say, would Gere and Robert such
superstars, if, instead of “Beauty”, they starred in the movie “3000”…
