In the meanwhile I have to settle for this Time magazine interview that was published around the time the movie was finally released. Ironically I only saw it because I was at the dentist office and it had a big Republican elephant on it discussing the problem with today's GOP especially with Obama in the White House. This comment that I'm sharing with you I find very interesting:
You've created several original TV shows, but your movies have been TV remakes. Is television more receptive to new ideas? Forrest Karbowski NEW YORK CITYNOTE: The question wasn't placed in italics in print. I did that to distinguish the question from Abrams' answer.
Because of the risk in budget, because films cost as much as they do, it's simply harder to find opportunities to take those kinds of creative risks in film. For right now, I think TV might be a place where there are more unexpected stories being told.
The next question would have to be why do films cost so much today?
