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 itís the darkest one and doesnít necessarily have a happy ending. So to go and say, ďAm I going to be able to make it before Ron is 71?Ē I donít know. And, by the same token, if itís not Ron, I donít want to make it. Somebody else can reboot the franchise, make it different, God bless, but if you do the epic ending ó the third one is epic, itís gigantic.
