'I've always wanted to do two versions of the movie. From the very beginning, I decided I wanted to do this, and I never really got to do it. I wanted to do an extra take, which was a comedy take, so that then I could cut together the whole movie as a comedy,' The Sun quoted him as saying.

 

'There have been a lot of great send-ups and parodies. It's fun. We used to say we were just making the movies so they could be parodied in Mad magazine, that's the only reason we're here,'  he added.
