Personal Quote:

I'd read the book The Silence of the Lambs (1991) and it was very violent and Jonathan and I needed to go back to work so we were looking around. ...In a series of events Gene Hackman, who was attached, dropped the project and Orion turned it over to us, so we rolled over right into pre-production.
