CNN has obtained a statement from the cast and crew of the movie that sparked a riot in Libya Tuesday, in which those involved with the movie distance themselves from the fim.
“The entire cast and crew are extremely upset and feel taken advantage of by the producer. We are 100% not behind this film and were grossly misled about its intent and purpose,” the statement says. “We are shocked by the drastic re-writes of the script and lies that were told to all involved. We are deeply saddened by the tragedies that have occurred.”
The New York Times, meanwhile, has tried to chase down the origins of the movie, only to conclude: “It is unclear whether a full movie even exists.”
The whole thing is, in short, bizarre.
