I’m not good with advice, so I just wanted to be supportive, helpful and open. I just wanted to tell them ‘Thanks for being here. Let’s make a new movie, have fun and give it our all. ‘ I don’t want to give too much away, but I think there is a very interesting and, in the film, a delightful evolution in the story.
