David Finch, the director of “Argo” and the upcoming “Sawbone” film, has shared his thoughts on the legacy of his film, the “Arguably one of the most important and influential films of the last decade.”
“Argo is definitely the film that has a really strong cultural impact and the films that have been made about it are very much in line with what I was trying to accomplish,” Finchen said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“There’s something to be said for the fact that you had to go out there and make a movie that you didn’t want to make, but then you had a certain amount of money to go around, and you were going to get your money back.
And you can’t really make a profit in the film business.
So, that’s a really, really cool thing that happens.””
Saw Bones” stars Jamie Bell and Emma Thompson.
It will premiere on ABC on April 18.
