During the press conference for Hail, Caesar! on Thursday (February 11), George admitted the world’s film industry takes too long to respond to humanitarian crises in the wider world.
“I’ve struggled to find ways to make a film about Sudan, about Darfur, something very close to me, and which I spend a lot of time on – but I haven’t been able to find the proper script,” George expressed (via The Guadrian) “It’s hard enough to find a good script for anything, and you don’t want to do it badly – because if you do you only get one chance.”
“I spend a lot of my time working on these things,” George added. “And it’s an odd thing to have someone stand up and ask, ‘What are you doing about it?’”
