The Pianist filmmaker Roman Polanski will never work with Adrien Brody again - after the actor forgot to thank the director in his OSCAR Best Actor acceptance speech last month (MAR03).

Polanski - who won the coveted Best Director ACADEMY AWARD despite his continued exile from America following his uncontested rape conviction in the Seventies - is furious at Brody's omission.

The CHINATOWN director says, "He's a punk. I want nothing more to do with him. Never ever will I work with him again."
