Alec Baldwin is asking fans to boycott a movie he made six years ago that will be released Friday.
Baldwin directed, produced and acted in The Devil And Daniel Webster back in 2001. Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Dan Aykroyd all star in the film, but it was never released.
The film has been re-edited, renamed Shortcut To Happiness, and Baldwin's name has been removed from the directing credits - replaced by pseudonym Harry Kirkpatrick. Oh, that's funny.
It will be released in six cities in the U.S. on July 13. Baldwin is pleading to fans not to watch the film - saying it is unrecognizable. A source told PageSix, "Alec doesn't recommend unrecognizable films to his fans. This is not an Alec Baldwin film. He's in the movie but he has nothing to do with it. His name was taken off as producer and director six years ago, but he couldn't get it taken off as an actor."
