Jordan, who has made acclaimed films like Get Out, Us and Nope, further added how he got involved with the project. “I came into the process when the film was already shot. He had a version of it, and he was feeling defeated for several reasons. I saw the film and immediately just wanted to jump through the Zoom and give him a hug. As a director, I know how hard it is to do what this man did and how hard it is to do it in one’s first time as well. All I wanted to do was say: ‘Look, this movie needs to be your version of this film. It needs to be the version that you set out to make. My goal would be just to help you realize that.’ And he took that and ran with it,” he added.
