While rumors of a sequel to the film Remember last summer circulate, Freddie Prinze Jr, one of the heroes of the first, spoke about his experience on the set of 1997. Well, it wasn't a panacea! At issue: director Jim Gillespie.

"It was a pain to go to the end of each day of shooting. I was in pain every day of shooting. That said, it prepared me, in a way, for this industry. I'm forever grateful to Jim for being such an," he told TooFab.

Freddie Prinze Jr detailed the remarks the director sent him, "psychotic memos," according to the actor, such as "Don't keep your mouth open because you look stupid when you do that." And if he wanted to "kick his ass", the actor gives some explanations for Jim Gillespie's hostile behavior.

Starting with the fact that he was not chosen by Jim Gillespie, who wanted Jeremy Sisto in the role of Ray Bronson. "I'm sure he helped someone else and he must be their hero, but for me he sent a lot of his frustration back onto me. It was his first film, he didn't have much time, he didn't have the budget he wanted, he didn't have the actor he wanted and he didn't know how to deal with this frustration," added Freddie Prinze Jr.

For his part, Jim Gillespie told DigitalSpy in 2017 that, on the contrary, he pushed the studios to choose Freddie Prinze Jr. "They found him too soft, not muscular enough," he said.
