[on directing blockbusters] You want big films and stories to keep people going to the cinema. It’s up to us to keep the bar raised. That’s the trick. I’ve always done that. (…) It is brain surgery! It is bloody brain surgery! You’re putting together a whole group of people, you’re trying to budget as accurately as you can and, at the end of it, you’ve got to sell a lot of tickets. That’s more complex than banking – but a few of us manage to pull it off. (…) I’m not kidding myself: I love the challenge. If you don’t, don’t do the job. [2016]
