You have worked on many projects as a producer. What is the one you are most fond of?
A: My next one. When I say that, people think I’m kidding, but as a producer, one always has to look forward, be even more creative, and find the next wonderful movie. You just have to keep going. I think that is one of the allures of being a producer – there is always the promise of discovery. Fortunately, I wake up each day more excited about my upcoming projects than the day I started!
