If it’s not right, you can’t spend a hundred million dollars and get it wrong. So who knows?"

"I met with the writers," he told us when asked how involved he’s been in getting the project moving. "Stuart Beattie was great, turned in great drafts, but it’s everyone agreeing that this is the movie we want to make, and when you have a movie of that size, there’s so many people involved. There’s so many cooks in the kitchen and everybody’s giving their opinion.
