john-hurt-snowpiercerHe may well be one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, but Harvey Weinsten came under scrutiny by renowned British actor John Hurt this evening, when speaking to HeyUGuys on the red carpet at the Critics’ Circle Awards in London.

Notorious producer Weinstein is thought to be releasing a cut-down edition of Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer (which we’ll be seeing at the Berlin Film Festival this coming week), and Hurt, who plays Gilliam in the forthcoming science fiction production, has expressed his disappointment with Weinstein’s involvement, in what he describes as “tinkering”. Hurt has been vocal in his criticism, claiming that a 20 minute sequence is set to be left out of the version released in the United States. You can watch our interview with the incensed actor below.
