There’s been pressure for years for Zack Snyder to get his chance to release his cut of Justice League. Now that he finally has the opportunity, though, he’s got a new set of challenges to contend with. At least, that’s what Jason Blum thinks -- and he has some interesting things to say about what those challenges could be.
The founder of Blumhouse Productions knows a thing or two about what happens behind the scenes. He recently spoke about the factors that directors deal with when they’re trying to bring their movies to the screen:
On that note, while speaking with Fox 5 DC reporter (and ReelBlend podcast co-host) Kevin McCarthy, Jason Blum also shared his on how important it is for filmmakers to be able to do their jobs without a lot of outside influence or noise:
Jason Blum also offered some perspective on the potential downside of fan-driven movements like #ReleaseTheSnyderCut:
The point that Jason Blum seems to be making is that the very people who are there to support filmmakers can also make it harder for them to do their jobs. Zack Snyder’s vision for Justice League has already been subject to the influence of producers and executives. The question is whether he will be able to stay focused on his vision, as he finally gets a chance to finish his version of the film. There’s no question that fans helped make it possible for him to do that -- but it’s also fair to say he still deserves to release the Snyder Cut on his own terms. That long-awaited cut is slated to debut on HBO Max sometime in 2021.
