When the project was first announced, Kosove said (via MTV News) that Scott's "blessing to do what we're doing is very important to Alcon."

"It's important to Bud Yorkin, and certainly we have the greatest degree of respect to him as a filmmaker," he said. "He's one of the greatest living directors and one of the greatest directors of all time. So of course he's very important."
