HOLLYWOOD (Zap2it.com) -- Director Ang Lee says he just completed the final print of "The Hulk," at 2 a.m. June 2, just hours before he was supposed to give interviews to the press.
He greeted the press corps for a screening Sunday night at the Universal Studios Alfred Hitchcock Theatre and then went back to the lab to finish the film that will be released to the public on June 20.
"I was still working a lot at the lab, I was still tweaking the release print in the lab at the studio," Lee tells Zap2it.com in an interview Monday (June 2.)
Producer Gale Anne Hurd says the perfectionist director, who was an Academy Award nominee for "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," was working late into the morning to get the print completed. "There were minor things he wanted to adjust," she says.
Lee said at the the screening, "I got a big budget and everything I wanted from the studio, so if this movie sucks it's all my fault."
The film, starring Eric Bana and Jennifer Connelly, co-stars Nick Nolte and Sam Elliot who were giving interviews Monday. Connelly canceled because she is pregnant. At the press junket on Monday, Nolte had trouble getting onto the studio lot because his name wasn't at the gate.
"It's OK, the security is super tight these days," says Hurd. "They wouldn't let me on the lot this morning either."
But Bana says that his limo driver talked to the guard when Bana didn't have is ID to get into the lot.
"He said to the guard, 'Hey, this guy in the back is the Hulk, and you don't want him to get angry,' " Bana tells Zap2it.
