There’s been no major motion picture released by a studio, no independent motion picture, in theaters, with King at the center, in the 50 years since these events happened, when we have biopics on all kinds of ridiculous people.

I think that as a director, especially when it comes to writing the script, which I also do, and I’m also the first one to visualize this story, I think contributing to the film industry means I’m able to take the best of a story and translate it well into a movie that can be released in theaters.

We make a lot of movies that I don’t think merit a wide release. We have this label called Tilt, and we have the movies come out on that, and that’s fine.
