KIND OF A SCI-FI KIESLOWSKI TRILOGY. THE SECOND MOVIE IS CALLEDMUTE? Yes. It's Berlin based. That film has been very difficult to get made. So in the short term what we're going to do is release it as a graphic novel. It worked for Darren Aronofsky when he did The Fountain. It will allow me to get a gauge of whether it's as good as I think it is. Then hopefully we'll able to use it to convince financers that we have a really strong visual story and that they shouldn't be so scared of it.

HAS HOLLYWOOD CORRUPTED YOU YET? Certainly not. I haven't had the chance to be corrupted.
HAVE YOU CORRUPTED HOLLYWOOD YET? I don't think so. But I do have a grand plan, and I would love to get into the position of guys like Tarantino and the Coen brothers who are writing their own material and then have a good enough budget to do it the way they want to do it. That's where I'd like to get myself.
GETTING BACK TOSOURCE CODE. THERE WAS AN ALTERNATIVE ENDING? There was. We tried out another ending. It was sort of [spoiler!]. I felt it was far more important to address that and [spoiler!]. But, there was this thread, which was, what are the implications of [spoiler!]? What happens in that reality? In that reality there was [spoiler!] because [spoiler!].
LOTS OF SPOILERS THERE. Massive spoilers. I'm sorry.
IT'S LIKE A MINEFIELD. It really is.
