Patrick could easily say: "I havent signed yet or read the script, but Ive talked to Bryan and we both are really excited to work together after all these years".
Its not a big deal, you know?
I agree completely. But for some reason, Patrick has gone all defensive about it. And that's the only reason I can think of. That's partly because I've noticed Fox can be a bit over the top and officious at times, making websites take down pictures and script reviews and stuff that is actually promoting a project. Sometimes they need to actually look at the effect of what has been written/said - a lot of the time it's positive and beneficial.
