From: Dinar Recaps 8/25 11am Newsletter
The Movie "Hit and Run" Opening in theaters this weekend.
At Intel4U:[catz] Dax Shepherd in "Hit and Run" talks about the dinar. He cut a lot of dinar jokes from the movie because people hadn't heard of dinars. He has a friend that is invested and despite people urging him to invest he hasn't. He talks about the dinar over half way down the page. http://www.aintitcool.com/node/57749
Section of the interview with Dax Sheperd discussing the Iraqi Dinar"
" DS: And some of them, look, they don't land, and I just stick with them. There was a big section of this that I did cut out. I assumed more people would know about it than did. It was Iraqi Dinar joke,. The guy I race my off-road car with, the navigator is this 50-year-old guy who has bought so much Iraqi Dinar currency, and he really believes it's going to become worth billions of dollars. I've been pitched so many times, the endless potential of a Iraqi Dinar, it's so absurd to me that people believe this, and so I wrote all of these Iraqi Dinar jokes.
Capone: There is one in the movie.
DS: Some stuck in, but there was this whole moment where Kris and I were in bed, and she's been offered the job, and I can't leave witness protection, and then I suggest maybe we should buy Iraqi Dinar. I have this money set aside. If it takes off the way the Kuwaiti dollar did in '97, it could be worth $300 million dollars, whatever. We tested that; no one knew what the **** Iraqi Dinar was or why that was funny, so that one I ditched. [laughs] There was a couple of racist jokes in BROTHER'S JUSTICE that people couldn't get behind. I left them in there because I think they're funny. Some of these things, you've got to have some kind of commitment to what you like."
