The business model has devolved to the point where creativity is the LAST thing that enters a studio’s mind when making a picture. Storytelling is dead bc it won’t bring in as much as a comic book film with a companion sandwich at Burger King. Of course, I am a creative, he says it stinks from an earnings point of view. To me, you can’t have one without the other…

The movie business stinks. If somebody asked me, “What’s a good way to make money?” I would say, “Stay away from the movie business, period.” Take Revenant: You take the cost, you add P&A [prints and advertising] and the distribution fee — you have $300 million behind one movie.
