In fact, it was a given going into it that it would only be one year because of the acting ensemble we had: Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Alex Skarsgård, Shailene Woodley. These are all people with big careers with a lot of projects lined up and they all had just one year deals.”

“We committed to this one thing as a complete picture,” he continued. “We didn’t have to conceive of future storylines and protect characters and make sure that they could be redeeming in any »
