Speaking to Deadline, Harland Braun called both the response and the original decision “a stupid PR stunt by them to look politically correct”. A new film by the director, J’Accuse, based on Robert Harris’s book about the Dreyfus affair, is due to premiere later this year. Following the premiere, Polanski’s wife, Emmanuelle Seigner, criticised Tarantino for not consulting her husband and for using the tragedy for entertainment. She also flagged what she felt was the apparent hypocrisy of Hollywood profiting from her husband while also ostracising him. “And all without consulting him of course.”Polanski has been nominated for six Oscars and won one, for 2003’s The Pianist.
