1. Who Wrote Madonnas Dialogue?

    By daniel on 2002-07-15

    There seems a presumption that Madonna will have dialogue in her cameo role in Die Another Day, it's a strong possibility. However, a few media outlets have gone as far as to say that any dialogue that shall be uttered by Madonna wasn't written by script writers Neil Purvis and Robert Wade. Frankly, I think such a suggestion is just simply wrong.

    The first news on the subject was Madonna's husband, director Guy Ritchie, had written the dialogue for the scene. Now comes news that Dan Cadan actually wrote the dialogue for the singers cameo role.

    The news is quite obviously inaccurate. Cadan has worked on four films, and none of them as a writer. In one film he was an actor, the other three he served as crew. His connection with Madonna is due to his crew work. He worked on Snatch, Swept Away and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, three films produced and directed by Guy Ritchie.

    While there is no official word on the matter, why would anyone be hired to simply write Madonna's dialogue for a cameo when Purvis and Wade could have done it themselves?

    Thanks to 'Colonel Moon' for sending in the Dan Cadan news.
