“It was really just betting on, ‘Well, if we write a good script, why would they say no?’ We joked that the most A24 thing we could do with this movie makes two of them. For a studio that is consistently making challenging, progressively interesting, filmmaker-driven [projects], making two movies at the same time fell into the umbrella of what’s so cool about what they’re doing.”
