What's the latest on making the full film?
At the exciting paperwork phase - looking forward to being let off the leash when we pass go.
Simon Kinberg and Neill Blomkamp are on board to produce at Fox so there's a really awesome close-knit group already assembled that I know has worked brilliantly together in the past.
I feel like I've joined the X-Men even though my mutant superpower is... umm… being slightly overweight and making bad jokes occasionally. But the reaction to the piece has been really encouraging. Especially because it was such a big gamble.
What have you learned from this project?
I've learned that everything David Fincher says about filmmaking is 100% correct so just listen to him instead of me because I'll just reiterating lame retreads of things he's said much more eloquently in the past.
