Disturbing Storytelling news!

"Storytelling, the new film from Todd Solondz, got a lukewarm reception from reviewers. Solondz is blaming its producers. He says they cut an entire hour of it, including a controversial scene where James Van Der Beek of Dawson's Creek fame engages in a homosexual sex act. In the version seen at Cannes, not only is the scene gone, but also Van Der Beek is not seen at all." - from The Kansas City Star

"Director Todd Solondz is complaining that the producers of his new movie made him edit out a scene in which James van der Beek is on the receiving end of anal sex. When asked for a comment, van der Beek said, 'They were FILMING that?'" - from Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update
