“We’ve signed Jim Mickle on. It is [exciting], and we’ve got a couple of fantastic writers that Jim has worked with in the past, and here’s the funny part,” Jane informed the podcast. “Everybody was so excited and we had meetings all around town, but if you’ll recall, From a Buick 8 is essentially about a platoon of state troopers in Pennsylvania, right. When the pandemic hit and then the craziness with the riots and all that and the anti-police stuff hit, we were like, ‘Okay, maybe it’s not the best time to pitch a story about a platoon of Pennsylvania state troopers.’”
Whereas the movie could also be postponed a bit till this sentiment both exits the forefront of the nationwide media or the filmmakers work out a option to method its police-filled forged in a approach that acknowledges the worldwide anti-racism motion, a signed director is an indication of progress.
