“Everybody knows everything in this business; everyone knew about this project [the biopic of Liberace, Behind the Candelabra] [and] if someone wanted to make it, it would’ve been made. Calls would go out when the movie became available, from the agencies repping the thing…They all came back with ‘not interested’ or with no call returned … It’s all economics. The point I was trying to make was not that anyone in Hollywood is anti-gay. It was that economic forces make it difficult, if not impossible, for people to think outside of the box … If audiences were going in great numbers to see stuff that was not down the middle, then everyone would be doing that … [Hollywood is] merely responding to what people are telling them they want to see!” – Steven Soderbergh, explaining partly why he’s done with movie-making.
That’s why I watch TV these days. I’m an adult.
