Director Tony Kaye talks STEPS and ZERO POINT

     December 10, 2009

In another universe, Director Tony Kaye has been working in Hollywood for the last ten years.  He didn’t have creative differences with Edward Norton on American History X, and has been working on big movies ever since.

But, as most of you know, that’s not what happened.

While editing American History X, Tony Kaye claims to have been removed from the process and says Edward Norton re-edited the film to give himself more screen time.  After that happened, Kaye tried to remove his name from the credits and he placed ads in Variety attacking the film and he sued New Line and the DGA.  When a director does something like this on his first big release, it’s no surprise Hollywood didn’t want to work with him on other things.

But even though Kaye has been quiet the last few years, he claims to be working on two films.  The first is Zero Point, which is about a doctor who discovers a new energy source.  The other is Steps and it’s about a business man whose daughter is kidnapped.  The twist is the kidnapper doesn’t seek a ransom, but wants to be able to control the man and take him on a journey through his past to meet all the people he’s fucked over in his life.  If you think it sounds like a twist on A Christmas Carol…I’d agree with you.
