“And the interesting thing about a hit film is that if it smells like hit they [the studio] won’t give it you. So it’s a catch 22. The only way to get on a hit film is to have made a hit film. But if they think it can be a hit film forget it. So what you have to do is get in a film that’s supposed be a little thing and have it go big.” -Very interesting and accurate observation from Dan Lebental (editor of IRON MAN, ELF, and other films). This is also why only making big tentpole blockbusters is a bad move. It’s harder to find new talent.
