co-creator Leigh Whannell approached him about returning for a fifth installment of the franchise, he admitted that he probably would have said no until his agent suggested that he could direct the movie as well.It was literally my agent asking. It was my agent who asked. They pitched me an idea for a tale. They wanted to know, before they wrote a Lamberts story, if they would do it because I had left the franchise. There was no ill will. It was fine. It had run its course. They wanted the movie to be about Dalton but asked me if I could come back for some scenes. My agent, who was also looking for projects to direct with me, said, “What about Patrick directing it?” Blumhouse did not know that I wanted to direct at that time. When my agent asked “What if Patrick directed it?” Blumhouse said, “Of Course, Yes!” It’s a good idea. It was really that simple. Patrick continued: “

Once i thought about the film that i wanted to make, a lot of it was personal, so i didn’t feel I had to pitch myself. My agent asked and they said yes. I then went to L.A. for a meeting with

Couper Samson. I also spoke to Steve Bersch, Sony , on the phone. I said, “If you don’t wish to make this type of movie, it’s fine.

Wilson said, “Scott came to me in the autumn of 2019 and sat down in my backyard asking me: ‘What type of movie do you want to make?’“. “He is a filmmaker as well, and he could not be a nicer guy. He’s an incredibly talented writer, so I poured all my ideas on him. I told him, “This is what I’m going to do.” I wanted a father-son bond, and we should have Dalton attend art school. So, we started talking about these ideas, before he wrote it. So I went and did Moonfall and

Aquaman 2, but there hasn’t been a day in the past four years that I haven’t thought about this movie. This is the truth. Every day I rewrote and reworked things on the sets of these movies, including Aquaman 2.. Scott would then put it into his own words. We’d discuss it, and I’d send it to him. This won’t be Patrick Wilson’s last time behind the camera, as he has caught the directing bug. Wilson replied, “For certain, yes,“. “This has never seemed to be a one-off. I’m already looking at other things. So I’m already looking at other things.
