Professor James Murray Mel Gibson took on the challenge of creating the most comprehensive dictionary ever compiled, but knew that it would take him and his team over a century to compile all known definitions. However, by "crowd sourcing" the work, that is, by enlisting definitions from people all over the world, the dictionary could be compiled in mere decades.
As definitions were collected, the overseeing committee, led by Professor Murray, discovered that one man, Dr.

May 8, Rating: B- Full Review…. The writer-director had claimed ownership of the copyright of the project after scripting a revision of its original script, but U. Gibson and Safinia believed that key scenes needed to be shot in Oxford, England instead of Trinity College in Dublin. Voltage and Chartier resisted, arguing the movie was already over budget and behind schedule. Voltage claimed Gibson and Safinia walked off the movie when the Oxford locations were not permitted.
As the settlement details are confidential, I will not be commenting but I would like to set the record straight as a number of articles have been released that are factually inaccurate.

First, neither Farhad Safinia nor I ever walked off of the set, or cause the film to ever go over budget. As a co-writer and first time director, Farhad Safinia brought The Professor and the Madman to life while being a consummate professional and at great personal expense.
The Professor and the Madman, by Simon Winchester () - Not Even Past
His devotion was represented in his work on this feature as well as in his past accomplishments on Apocalypto and Boss. This was a labor of love for the entire creative team, and it is unfortunate for all concerned that this film was never finished as written. Over the last two years, we have doggedly tried to film essential scenes in Oxford which makes sense for a film about the Oxford English Dictionary!
Apparently, it was not meant to be: the shooting script was not completely shot. Therefore, I did not get the opportunity to choose a final cut, and cannot support the film. Our only objectives were to tell a great story and to showcase the talent of Farhad Safinia who is one of the most talented writers and directors I have worked with.
It is my hope that one day the world gets to see all he has to offer. I regret that this film will never be seen as it was meant to be. The Voltage version of this film is a bitter disappointment to me. I would also like to clarify some misreporting saying that we had demanded reshoots and additional scenes to be shot. We never asked for either. All we had ever asked was for the shooting script to be completed. It never was. Numerous essential scenes set in Oxford as well as multiple indispensable scenes set in Broadmoor Asylum were never shot leaving substantial portions of the script incomplete with irreparable gaps in performance and basic story logic.
This meant that I was never able to prepare any kind of coherent cut and had no involvement in the version that is being released. This film was a year labor of love for me. I saw the crew deliver work on it that was truly extraordinary, and do so under difficult conditions. The cast, led by Mel Gibson and Sean Penn, turned in beautiful performances across the board.
