X-Men: The Last Stand fame Vinnie Jones aka Juggernaut accused director Brett Ratner of chopping his character in the film. Now, Ratner had come out and addressed the accusations. According to the filmmaker, he respects Jones’ work thoroughly, and it was the studio who made the changes and not him.
A quick recap, earlier last week, Vinnie Jones accused that Brett Ratner had chopped his character Juggernaut brutally, and killed its real purpose after coming on board. Now for the unversed, X-Men: The Last Stand was supposed to be directed by Matthew Vaughn. But due to some personal reasons, Matthew had to step down, and Ratner came on board.
Addressing the allegation, Brett Ratner according to the Comicbook, in a now-deleted Instagram post wrote, “In all seriousness, I shot the script I was given, and I was not able to expand the role of Juggernaut as per Vinnie’s request due to the extremely limited time I had to deliver the film.”
X-Men: The Last Stand director added, “I have the utmost respect and admiration for Vinnie Jones and his talent and thought he created a memorable character.”
Meanwhile, last week while talking about Juggernaut and Brett Ratner, Vinnie Jones said, “It wasn’t the same Juggernaut as I signed on for. They took his storyline away, they’d taken his character away, his dialogue. I had two big meetings with Brett about it, and he said, ‘Yeah, yeah, it’s coming. They’re writing stuff for you as we speak’ and it never fucking happened.”
