Elmore Leonard had rather more to say about 3:10 to Yuma than what’s used in the EPK, as Amy Alkon reports from Italy. The press kit has Leonard saying only,”It’s a good-looking picture”. Why? Probably because the flacksters thought this exchange might be a problem:
Q: Is there something about James Mangold that you admire about him being a director now and making a Western film?
EL: Well I wonder why he wanted to remake this one? That would be my first question. He should have remade one that didn’t work.
Flame-tressed Alkon also made out with Christopher Hitchens and mixed it up with Russell Banks over the dangers of radical Islamists, so her trip wasn’t totally wasted.
