Steven Spielberg and George Lucas on funding and theatrical distribution

1 Comment

Spielberg: “There’s eventually going to be an implosion — or a big meltdown. There’s going to be an implosion where three or four or maybe even a half-dozen megabudget movies are going to go crashing into the ground, and that’s going to change the paradigm.”

Lucas: “I think eventually the ‘Lincoln’s will go away and they’re going to be on television.”

Spielberg: “As mine almost was… This close — ask HBO — this close.”

Lucas: “We’re talking ‘Lincoln’ and ‘Red Tails’ — we barely got them into theaters. You’re talking about Steven Spielberg and George Lucas can’t get their movie into a theater… The pathway to get into theaters is really getting smaller and smaller.”
