I thought Rose’s saving what we love quote was based on this bit from Irvin Kershner during the making of Empire?
I think Rian has said something to the effect of he wrote it before he read that book, but took Kersh’s words as some sort of validation he was on the right track. But I can’t find that tweet right now so maybe I’m making it up.
That does sound familiar. I’m sure you’re right. It’s interesting how things like that happen. Nothing happens by accident.
