Thank you very much for this. Thank you, Scott Rudin, for bringing us this novel and giving us the opportunity to make the movie. I think whatever success we've had in this area has been entirely attributable to how selective we are: we've only adapted Homer and Cormac McCarthy. So, thank you.
We, uh... thank you very much.
