Ewan recently explained that his wife Eve was the one who encouraged him to direct the film.

“I always wanted to direct for a long time, but I always wanted to wait to have a story that I felt I was burning to tell. Then I was talking to my wife about the fact that I didn’t think this one was going to happen and she said – ‘you should direct that one,’” he explained.

FYI: Ewan is wearing a Neil Barrett suit and shirt.
