[on getting at least 60% of what you want on a film set] . . . I think that’s probably on a good day. I would say probably, on a given film, Fight Club (1999) is probably closest to what we wanted to do. It’s about 75% of what we wanted. I think Panic Room (2002), even though it was storyboarded within an inch of its life, was probably 60%. The Social Network (2010), I wasn’t transposing what I had in my head on it, because I was really following the text, and following these kids, so that movie was, y’know, about 70-75% of what I thought it was going to be. This movie is probably about that. I think you’re doing pretty good if you can get 70% of what you want.
