Well, let’s simply say The Avengers director Joss Whedon has not been in everybody’s good books. He has been known as unprofessional by Ray Fisher previously. Now, the stunt coordinator and stunt double, Jeff Pruitt and Sophia Crawford, of Buffy The Vampire Slayer have labelled him as an egomaniac.
Both Jeff Pruitt and Sophia Crawford have accused Joss Whedon of varied different issues as effectively. They’ve additionally revealed being threatened of not getting work in the event that they don’t adjust to what he says.
In a dialog with Metro, Jeff Pruitt mentioned, “We had a great relationship, Joss and I, but he changed as the show took off. He went from the humble writer who used to turn to me for ways to shoot fight scenes into a real egomaniac who believed his own hype. Then again, maybe he was always that way and I was simply too naive to see it as he never showed that side to me before. We’d always supported each other.”
Jeff Pruitt additionally added, “Although we loved making the show, by season four I’d become fed up and told them I was going to leave to direct Second Unit on another series. The producers told me that Joss reacted as if I was having an affair or something behind his back.”
Sophia Crawford mentioned, “I really loved Buffy, but honestly Joss and Jeff had a bit of a falling out. And I’m sure it should have been resolved, could have been resolved if they’d have just talked it over. ‘But I was called into the office and I was given an ultimatum. And they said to me, ‘Come back to the show, but you need to leave Jeff or don’t come back. And so I basically started crying. And I said ‘F you. That’s horrible, bye.’”
Jeff Pruitt additionally revealed getting threatened and mentioned, “Joss told both Sophia and I that ‘no one will ever hire you again after this’. He never says to anyone that he’ll see to it you never work in this town again. He is very careful. He only insinuates that no one will ever hire you again if you don’t please him.”
Well, this certainly creates extra troubles for The Avengers director.
