Those of you who know about and have seen the 1997 sci-fi/horror movie Mimic know that it was director Guillermo del Toro's English flick debut. Guillermo del Toro, who later went on to direct for English audiences the Hellboy franchise and Blade II as well as Pan's Labyrinth for Spanish speaking masses, was dealt a heavy blow during production of Mimic in terms of getting his original vision to 100 percent readyness because of the Weinstein brothers. He did manage to shoot his original concept as to how the film would end, but bad reaction from test audiences and the superiority the Weinsteins had as producers forced Guillermo to reshoot a more upbeat ending as well as reshoot several scenes in ways that clashed with his original vision. Unsuprisingly, Guillermo has disowned Mimic, the version that did make it to the public at least, but for years he's been trying to put together his director's cut that shows the movie as he completely envisioned it without producer interference. The revelation of the original ending is one step forward in the right direction, so we might be able to see the entire original vision of Mimic someday.
