So for us to not make it would be letting down people who invested in the first two. It’s epic what he wants to do, but it would be cinematic and well worth doing.

The second movie, it was a $150 million dollar movie that we did for $80 [million]. Very difficult, had to fight for every little thing that made them quirky. The third one is the hardest one because it’s the darkest one and doesn’t necessarily have a happy ending. So to go and say, “Am I going to be able to make it before Ron is 71?” I don’t know. And, by the same token, if it’s not Ron, I don’t want to make it. Somebody else can reboot the franchise, make it different, God bless, but if you do the epic ending — the third one is epic, it’s gigantic.
