Alec Baldwin Wants you to Boycott The Devil And Daniel Webster

6 Comments

In 2001, Alec Baldwin produced, acted in, and directed “The Devil And Daniel Webster”. He had a good cast, including Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Dan Aykroyd, and of course, himself. Well, that was 6 years ago, and the film still hasn’t seen the light of day. Until now. The studio that owns the movie has since re-cut and re-titled the film “Shortcut to Happiness”, removed Baldwin’s name from the credits (replacing it with the pseudonym Harry Kirkpatrick), and will release the film into theaters in six cities July 13, reports IMDB. Baldwin, justifably peeved, is telling his fans (do they actually exist?) not to watch the movie, calling it “unrecognizable”.

So what’s this thing even about?

A writer sells his soul to the Devil and then reneges on the deal and, at his supernatural trial, is represented by a famed orator.

Huh.

How much does Baldwin’s cut suck that the studio would voluntarily shelf the film for 6 years?

Starring Anthony Hopkins, Alec Baldwin, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kim Cattrall, Dan Aykroyd, and directed by Harry Kirkpatrick (aka Alec Baldwin).

Here’s a trailer for it (with the new title):

    This film was FINALLY released on DVD! Shortcut to Happiness is the new title. The original title was way better. Hopefully Alec Baldwin will get to release a director’s cut DVD someday.
