-   I'm no longer convinced theatrical is the holy grail.

-   It's a frustrating business sometimes. When you've been pushing an executive to read something for ages and they won't, or an actor commits to your project and then at the last minute uncommits.

-   What people expect from a Killer film [her production company] is a degree of originality, provocativeness and a kind of bravado.

-   I would never ever criticize them [directors] in front of anyone else, because if the crew and the actors don't respect the director, you're screwed as a producer. Ultimately when I throw myself behind a movie, I have to really believe in that director's vision.

-   Being on a set where the director has lost control is just sickening. No one goes the extra mile, there's a lot of eye-rolling ... it just breeds inertia. If a director is in control, the crew follow their leader. But the second anyone senses the directors are not sure, people just swoop in.

-   In my experience there are two kinds of difficult directors. The first is a gigantic pain in the ass about perfection-these directors have a clear sense of their vision and won't compromise, but it's all about making the movie as good as it can be, so I can handle it. The other kind freaks out about the perks-their trailer isn't as big as it should be or their ride to set isn't good enough-and that I can't brook. If I had a director complaining about a car being too purple, I'd just be like, Are you high?
