Trivia that mentions this person:
Freddy vs. Jason [2003]
  • Ronny Yu originally turned down the directing job because the script didn't indicate who won. He agreed to take the job when Robert Shaye told him he could make that decision himself.
  • The scene which featured Jason's bed kill was originally rejected by New Line studio executives, but writers Mark Swift and Damian Shannon fought hard for filming it. They acted it out on the floor to convince director Ronny Yu. After he liked the idea, the scene was filmed and it turns out to be the biggest reaction of audience during the test screening.
  • Katharine Isabelle was quite upset with director Ronny Yu when she learned that by accepting the role of Gibb, something Yu suggested, she was expected to do a nude shower scene. She refused to do so so [?] Tammy Morris replaced her as a body double for the scene. There was great friction between Isabelle and Yu for the rest of the shoot because of this incident.
