The 40th anniversary of Woodstock is being commemorated by an Ang Lee film this month, but one of the event's organizers said there isn't enough money to resurrect the legendary music festival. Michael Lang, one of four of the original organizers of Woodstock in 1969, said he dropped plans for a free concert in Prospect Park in Brooklyn because no one was willing to shell out the $8 million it would have cost. He then tried to plan a September event in conjunction with the United Nations' Climate Week. Either way, Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock hits theaters August 28.
