"Limits to me, but you need. Lots of guns. You can take John. All of this. What Buffy wasn't just a puppy that's a little bit of the trailer for John wick three. The latest installment in the John wick action franchise, Tina has a- and kiva reared near here accused green panel talking the legacy of canneries, and Tina, I gotta tell you, I just when I first heard John Vic, I was going to be pretty normal straight ahead action movie. And then it became again, this sort of plastic. Everyone tells me any to watch it all the time. Why has it sort of transcended, your normal action film? So I mean I'm not like the biggest action movie fan, but the reason that I love John wick is because it's so basic, it's just such an easy simple setup. You know, like guy lose his wife guy gets a puppy. You know, I don't wanna spoil it for everyone. But like the puppy dies. And then he spends the rest of the movie exacting revenge. The reason that I think that it's so good is because. Well, first of all, the action sequences are unparalleled, like in recent history. I cannot think of an action movie that does the kill scenes, like better than John wick, just the way that the editing is done. There's a certain level of craftsmanship there that I don't see in other movies. Secondly. Yeah. Definitely the basic -ness of the plot. Thirdly, there's a lot of interesting world building the way that the assassins, have to sort of like navigate like certain rules. They're like these little tokens. The way that the Continental Hotel is us. It's, it's all just really simple, but beautiful and easy to take it, and it's a beautiful film to look at another keep it was nodding her head up and down. Big John, wick person big John wick. I really I really love action movies, and I think tina's take on it is completely completely spot on. And I think another level that gets folded into the John wick franchise is the profound sadness of his character that also then and this is talked about quite frequently with, with Kano is the sadness of his own life. He is his first wife gave birth to a stillborn baby. And then she died, I believe it was eighteen months later. So it was marked with you know, there's even memes going around of sad Kano, and there is a profound sadness to him. And so for him to take a rule, which is about a grieving husband in grieving, man. I think there is that kind of almost like, are we watching some part of reality play out here? Is he exercising his own trauma in taking this role? Yeah. Totally it's very meta contextual. Kind of maybe a bad time to bring this up, but I want to bring up. There's also a discussion online about as Canada Reeves a good actor at all. In fact, is canneries potentially a bad actor, not a bad actor like that. But bad actor in film, Tina, why is why do you think it's bad? Rap is I think he was miscast enrolls like Dracula, basically, he doesn't really serve period pieces. I think he's a much more modern actor. And I think that, you know, when I was saying before that he is a very receptive face. I think that he you know, he embodies a certain cypher quality, which I actually think is good in some cases and it works really well for him. It works for him really, well as Neil because he's got to be the sort of like blank slate. So it really just depends on the role. And I do think that, you know, as much as I love Bill and Ted. I think it kind of typecast him as this stone, dude, but I do think that he's been able to overcome. Come that. And in addition, by starring and action movies, there's a way that he uses his body that is just phenomenal that, like, you know, very few actors really match. And I think part of that, too, is that you just see a sense of him trying to do the very best that he can in every single role, but in every single action sequence like he's just so focused, right? Do you think can Hispanic? Well, I would say that basing a review on Dracula is a little cruel. Delicate Anjelica Jade bus, John is an incredible film critic and she has written at length for years about Canada Reeves and she, she points out that his, his Heiser, very high in his lows are pretty low Dracula, like I said below among the lows. Yes. But she also points out that she says that he's, he almost missed his call as a silent film actor. And I think thinking about Kano that way is very interesting because we have when I say, we I mean, film, critics, I think there's a bit of a struggle and how to talk about acting. We talk about it often through the lens of method acting and dramatic transformation. Something that you can really pick up and see because the trick with acting as if you're doing it. Well, you, you don't notice that you're doing it. You're not watching that you're not watching someone act whereas if you look at silent films, they're communicating through their body through physicality through facial expressions. And that is, is still what can does. So if he's put into something like Dracula, where he's getting period, pieces, and having to deliver, these really wordy lines that doesn't actually serve what he does best. Whereas if you look at John wick, which is really stripped, down bare bones. Just this guy going through the motions of seeking revenge. That's actually where you see him shine. Also similarly, even in the matrix love the take the canneries continuing the legacy of silent film. Dame Buster Keaton sits patina, the reason we're bringing this up. I know if you're just chain in the middle of this, you probably think canneries is dead. He's not dead. Like we're talking about him because the internet loves Canada rings internet boyfriend. Why does the internet loved cannery summit? Okay. So there's also just the fact that he's a really nice guy like in every single fan, and like everyone has a story about him, you know, like there was like this guy who worked at a movie theater, and he was too shy to go and ask for his autograph in Kenya, like intuited this and like bought an ice cream so that he could get a receipt, so that he gets signed his autograph for this guy, you know, like he gave up his seat for someone on the he takes the subway takes gazillion dollars. Any takes the subway. And then in addition to that yelich, I know Tom, we wanted to talk about this like in, in photos with women. He does what's called the hover hand, which is essentially, like if he sort of like getting beside like physically close to someone because that's what you do when you take a photo with them. He doesn't actually touch them, right? Like you can see his hand around their shoulder their ways or something. Right. And like some people online that this is a sign of insecurity or like low self esteem, but I think. It's actually like a I don't know, like a sense of dignity, and respect, and courtesy for someone that you don't know, very well might not want to be touched. Right. Right. Sometimes I feel like with this stuff with the internet. It's kind of like of mice and men like we're going to squeeze Keno so tightly on the internet that we're gonna somehow kill him now. It wouldn't mean we're going to ruin his career or something like that ruin his legacy fifty minutes of fame, right? Keep it what do you think about are we maybe protecting a little too much on the old Kano these days? I think it goes back to his kind of his, his blank nece, which also I think translates to openness. So we're able to look at him and be like, I think I'm seeing him. Right, right. Gave it can hear that impression. I'm Virgo so. Whoa, I appreciate that. Tina. Journalist joins us from Victoria, BC Tina.

"Yeah. And you have this weird moment, we realize, like someone normal comes out on stage during an industry event and you like, oh my God. There's so much better than everyone. We like they should do more of this. Yeah. Warmers. You're actually, you know, the, the industry stuff is really Steph, normal people Hallelujah daughter. By the way, who is I tweeted this, this is one of somehow has become one of the biggest tweets I've ever made this true story to she came home from school one day, and she said, seventeen she's an iphone user? And she said, yeah. They made us watch the the original launch of the iphone event. You know, Steve Jobs on stage and everything. And I said, yeah, I'm familiar with the Kelly. I don't know if you. Cover the industry. This was her take on it. She said, I don't understand what everyone was so excited about how and she says, I can tell you this. If they were to try to do that launch today. Nobody would be excited by this. Yeah. I was like, that's okay. But it just kind of jaded normal human beings viewpoint of like an industry event, which is regarded as a industry case study that we studied forever. She was like. The young are not like you and me. Well, she's Anthony Neilson in our in our down the hall. One of our producers says the Keno San's is real, and I'm here for it. John wick, John wick, three just came out. I guess that shouldn't call them a b list celebrity. I just feel like I still Bill and Ted's excellent adventure. When I see. Okay. So have you watched the John Wayne movies? I watched the first two. Yes. Yes. So I assume Mary Jo has not know Cup times. John wick. I don't even know who that is. Guy and his movies are fundamentally especially, oh, they're awful Baso. He the it's the death wish you know, seem, which is he's a nice guy. He's a nice guy. He's in dog lover and then killed his dog. And now he kills four hundred and fifty people onscreen in the most brutal way possible. It's slightly worse than you're describing because this occurs over three movies. Beginning of the first movie he doesn't stop killing until mad. He's still mad at. Yeah. So it's, it's over the top, you know, the one thing I really like about the movies is the host the Continental Hotel thing, where there's this place where all the assassins, just stay like that. But as far as like if you actually think about the movie itself, they're, they're actually really terrible terrible movies like this is terrible. And I, I don't understand like the notion that this guy is somehow popular because of these movies is very strange to me. But whatever it doesn't matter. I thought he's lucky. He was cool. It's fine. I you know, but again, I think it was just a reminder of, oh, God. Like open the windows and the doors. It's like a world out there like Like it's. if you actually look outside of this little world wherein like this funds this need stuff out there, and it really it just to me, it, always, it makes all of the other presenters, and all of the other content, like all the less interesting. And this is something Microsoft used to do a lot. This is the John wick kill count. I think one movie he kills one hundred twenty four people with guns thirty two with swords and knives. Three by horses. Three one by ax three by motorcycle kills one guy with a book. Yep. The dog kills another cat. So this is not going to move. Not my Cup. What about the pencil? How many pencil kills Chuck by wire, broken neck, a twenty eleven dodge charger six people guns bomb-detonation? Oh, I, maybe the pencils are in other. They're gonna have to call it the pencil. The pencil is central to them with Allah, Jim story. Never kill a man stuck the yet. So he kill this is in the first one seventy seven people killed never kill a man's dog is the is the moral of that story. Yeah, it's pretty. But that's why you can't as hot and I take your point. Paul is that some you know what we're still nerds?.

"Somebody with molten gold was a huge missed opportunity. Right. That's really like like. Checkoffs checkoffs, VAT of molten gold and the molten metal never splashed. But I don't know what, what did you think of this? This interlude in the film, the sort of beginning of the second act of the film. Well, I thought that it was under utilized later in the movie I thought we were setting up, John wick was going to have a companion that, you know, somebody who was going to be with counterpart, but I guess that wasn't going to happen, and it wasn't really explained why it wasn't going to happen? She was just in a little bit of the movie, and then she left. So I liked it, and I thought it was cool, because it reintroduced Jodoin to the idea of not being totally alone, which I think, is important for him to re socialize in the world of living people. But this idea of, like, who really does ever socialize with John wick seems to be something that this movie asks over and over again, and we get an answer here, where it's like this, what Bersin socialized with John awaken? What kind of? Okay. I don't know Mark, what did you think? Oh issue because the broader theme of the movie was about action and consequence. Another kind of how it ties together and we don't see the consequences Floyd play outright. We have yet another instance of one of these assassins, breaking cardinal rules of not killing people on the on grounds of continental could tell they killed like a hundred people in the Continental Hotel, including its proprietor, its main owner, and that should had devastating consequences that we don't hear anything at all about that later on in the movie. It just really felt shoehorned in just not between two for Halle Berry to do her thing. Great and don't get me wrong. It's just felt kind of dropped in disconnected. Yeah. What do you think that I don't know is no swordfish? Hey, you know what happens to an underground runner of a gold coin? Mid to get struck by lightning. Same thing is everything else. Yeah..

We want to tell you about three Afghans who died in twenty eighteen who they were till you a lot about Afghanistan each represents in their own way, the country in the challenges the US faces they're in why this conflict has lasted as long as it has. Let's start with a true Afghan patriot and the clear US ally. In someone we had really relied on my is Kevin shy. Murad? If I am from north of Afghanistan. I am from. Panjshir province. Liven up there before very beautiful valley. Yeah, we first met Murad. If when we did a profile of Afghan commandos in the late spring of plenty sixteen to be a commander in Afghanistan is a great accomplishment in honor.

He struck us right away. Fluent in English. Well, traveled razor, sharp and most strikingly. Fearless. He was not a big guy especially apparent when he was working side by side with a huge American green berets in the funny thing is really mild mannered, but he was a strong soldier he trained every day. She ran fast. He knew his men, and he was always given the hardest missions like in January of this year from the Taliban attack, the biggest hotel and Afghantistan gunman. Stormy into Continental Hotel in Kabul on Saturday night. The Taliban says its fighters were searching for government workers security forces and foreigners wish wife and his men who helped secure the hotel after a half day of fighting. He fought the Taliban and even ISIS for months at a time. He nearly died twice once from an explosion and another time from an airstrike gone bed. His last mission wasn't even fighting. It was helping flood victims and also negotiating peace talks between a warlord and Taliban forces. He got them old together in a rule, they even stopped fighting for a while. He was proud Schwab died in September second in military aircraft accident in northern Afghanistan only thirty three swipe was a good guy. Someone who cared about his country. Someone the Americans could work with and someone we counted on as we reported on this war of Weinstein, he won the next person. Remembering today claimed to work for the common. Good but really only cared about himself. Abdul-jabbar Herrmann was in his mid sixties this year, he ran for parliament a Taliban bomb killed him in his office in Helmand province. Carman was a chameleon before he got into politics. He was a military, man. A general in twenty sixteen president Ashraf Ghani made him his special Representative in charge of security in the most violent area in the country. Helmand province he was a dangerous man over the years. He worked for the Russians and spent years in exile in Russia. We're told he had ties to Pakistani intelligence American intelligence told us he was dirty involved in the drug trade. Investigators told us he was linked to an attack on a convoy. We were riding in back in two thousand sixteen. But by all accounts, he was one of the most powerful men in Helmand province until his death on October seventeenth in the Taliban. Bombing the very next day, another Taliban attack in southern Afghantistan. General Scott Miller escaped unharmed in the attacking candle Har when an Afghan bodyguard shot dead general Abdul Razzaq one of the country's most powerful commanders during a critical week here. Dear general Abdul Razzaq was born in Canada. But like many Afghans in the south. He did not know, exactly. When in two thousand eleven he took on a difficult job. He would be Cantu. Horace provincial police chief he was maybe thirty five rows league was not easily scared. He bragged about how many times the Taliban tried to kill him. I recall him pointing to burn spun on his hand, a scar from Taliban bomb. I had a long interview with him at his estate in may of two thousand fifteen surrounded by his armed guards. He talked about how he pushed the towel Dan out of Kantar. But now I can drive with you guys and ninety kilometers from here. Cannot find any found undamaged, but bed voice was not his it's of the late journalist, and our friend the Beulah who died together with our colleague photographer. David Gilkey in that convoy attack when mentioned earlier when we're talking about Carmen, right Corimon, the chameleon if he was a foe to American involvement there in Schwab was a friend than this, man. General Abdul Razzaq was like a lot of Afghanistan a complicated. Mix of the two the American military gold Razek a great ally. He kept the peace in can the heart for seven long years. But he was also brutal. He was accused of torturing those he arrested sometimes with power drills. He would execute others. Without trial, the UN and human rights groups, denounced him summing to Afghan government in even in the US government wanted to cut ties with him, but draws brushed all of that aside. He said the choice was really either him or the Taliban. What we are doing in this country is for law enforcement, if settling for the people his crime, then I have to go to my people and ask them, what did you say? After that clip. Ran in a story. I did I had one army officer said to me, Tom if it wasn't for Razek, the Taliban would be at the gates of the American base in Kantar. But another told me bluntly, we created that monster general Dora Zeke was killed on October eighteenth by teenage Afghan guard who was also with the Taliban during a meeting with American generals. One of whom was also wounded. The three deaths. Tell the story of Afghanistan the betrayals the corruption the dysfunction and the people like Schwab who do not want to give up on staying in building a better country in this year's election.

"Clark, ABC news. WTMJ news time four thirty four. Feeder Continental Hotel is soon to be a hotel that is unlike any other in Milwaukee and arts hotel called the Saint Kate. I recently spoke with the owner and visionary of the development president and CEO of the Marcus corporation, Greg Marcus about what this artsy property will be like we've seen a trend where there's been a hotels. It had been focusing on the arts around the country. We've we've gone all across the country and looked at all the different versions of it. And we want we saw a couple of things that we do we decided we wanted here. One was most of them almost all of them focused on the visual arts. This hotel will focus on the visual arts as well. But we also thought since we're sitting in the heart of the of the of the performing arts district that we should also focus on the performing arts. Now really has there's no established model for that. And then on top of that to add a attitude a local flavor, so it's not just going to be our Milwaukee or just Arte, Wisconsin. But that's gonna be really important to us. But but we'll have wool. Class art from around the world exhibited here. We'll be doing performing arts. We have world class performing arts. My hopes that you know, you never know what you're gonna find their so takes inside. I know a couple of the rooms done on the fourth floor. Take us inside one of those rooms in what people will see there's going to be too. Two things first of all they're going to see a very modern beautiful hotel room. That's the first thing they're going to see. But the thing that makes we we made a decision about the rule of work. We're about art of the world and really from anywhere. But we wanted to do in our guestrooms was celebrate local makers. And so we went to a number of prominent artists around town and said, we'd like you to design things for the rooms. So an artist designed to bed scarf. That's the piece that comes to the front of the bed. We went to Kohler. I I I immediately upon doing this. I thought about colours artists residency program, and I went right to the top. And I called David Kohler. And I said. Is there something we want to showcase colour products here in this hotel? It's perfect. We're we're a local business your local business. You have artists in residence program. How do we seems like an interesting match, and although it didn't end up actually an artist in residence program the six that we were able to design with colour. We have local artists design design into the sink on one of their forms. And it's it's an it looks gorgeous. And what a great what a great marriage in a way between our two companies. So we were able to do that. Lots of the different elements of the room have been designed by local artists and the Wham. Done by by a baby printing company. Did you feel like this was something this city would respond well to being such an arts oriented city? Absolutely. That's the whole point. I view the arts is one. It's no walkies crown jewels. It really is. And so they will celebrate that and to to show that too. It's gonna operate on two levels. We see it as a home for artist. And we wanted to be an artistic hub when artists are looking. We had a call for proposals to ours. How how do you want this to be your home? I mean, we're building the architectural the sort of the outline and we want, but we want our community to help fill it in. But we also see look at there's going to be people coming from all over the country to stay here at the hotel people come all over the country to save the walkie. We think they're going to be captivated by this product. And they're going to want to stay here. You're starting on certain sections win will this completely be done? Well, it's never done because we're gonna constantly be Caja get making it fresh good idea. Open for business, right right around the anime perfect. And let's talk about the name Saint Kate. What was the creative process behind the name? Maiming? Something is always a challenge. There's no doubt about trying to find maybe struggling you never liked the name to come up with all the suggestions. Like, how could you try to? When you look back on something and they've named something. Like, of course, that's the name. But I promise you most the time when you're going into it when you have no no nothing to attach a name to it's hard to picture that being the name. But this was really interesting as we as we worked to the process and we hired a company called one designed their Brandon company. They're fantastic at it. They they take you through a process to help sort of flesh out. And you talk about what does the hotel about what it's going to be. And they start looking for words. And as it turns out, thank Catherine is the patron Saint of arts. So when they said, Kate, and we all looked Caitlyn guessing Catherine's the pain. You're like, oh, I get it immediately. That makes sense in the world. Yeah. Let's call it that. That was the president and CEO of the Marcus corporation. Greg markets. You can hear the excitement in his voice. This hotel supposed to open up in the springtime going to be a cool, very cool for thirty nine at WTMJ..

"And among the regular series of acts that the the act put on was one called hot for teacher in which a dancers posing as college. Coeds would urinate simulate urinating on their professor. And there were couple. I heard that urination performances at the act as you can best recall. It was such a performance put on the night. You were there with Donald Trump. So. It is so difficult because I'd love to be able to say to you show that was these people and they were paying on the show. I don't know is the answer I because the bulks I think they do do that. And I've been to the box in New York and LA and New York and London. So it's hard to say whether it was there a London or New York, but I don't know if they did that night when we were the. Okay. So here's my question because you mentioned when we spoke, if you go that you had seen this performance urination performance in London, you believe now you're also saying possibly in New York as well awfully. Okay with 'em you are with them in in London? Yes. You saw? Yes, the urinate, yes. Performance did you and Emon talk about that? No. I mean, I'm show we may have made a common in the club when it happens, but no, not really. Okay. 'cause I mean, I guess the question that was always in my mind about this is some could some garbled version of this performance somehow have been the origin of the famous seen in the Steele dossier that says, Trump had prostitutes peeing on the bed in the Ritz Carlton in Moscow? Well, the interesting thing is, and again, I'm sure there's people far above my pay grade sitting in Washington, currently, trying to work out some of this, but you'll hypothesis on this actually makes more sense to me than what's alleged in the steel dossier that it happens at the Ritz Carlton that night. And there's a couple of reasons for that one. Is there. It was a lot made about the providence of Trump wanting to stay in that particular suite in the Ritz Carlton hotel. Well, I know for fact, I that hotel and I was arguing with them in about which hotel he would even stay up until forty hours before he was going into the Continental Hotel Moscow. So that part of it was always a bit weird but, but more than that, I never heard about it. And if you've ever worked with a large scale live event, there's lots of people and over. I think I was in Moscow maybe three or four weeks with them in the run-up to it, you become friends. I was friends with people in the hotel. I'd stayed in the Ritz coun-. I knew people that no one ever mentioned it before obviously Joran and after even when the story broke and that's when people suddenly, right, Email, Texaco, gas, I always knew about that. Yes, I heard about no one ever mentioned that to me and I just thought, well, I will the only period that we didn't have Trump and kind of in all cat was when he was supposedly sleeping.

"Would it surprise you to know that the chief concierge at the Continental Hotel Saigon's top hotel was in fact working for the Viet Cong Hackworth it wouldn't surprise me at Ted of sixty eight. The secretary of to the commanding general of the US forces in Vietnam general Westmoreland was found holding an AK forty seven with the whole Vietnamese apparatus. I never once trusted Vietnamese. I never trusted a Vietnamese general. I never allowed a Vietnamese inside my camp. My firebase if I were going to meet Vietnamese Colonel, I would meet him outside my firebase because I didn't trust him. I seemed everybody was vehicle. Question and these are the people you were meant to be fighting for Hackworth. That's right. And that was my attitude. The soldiers from the night. The vision hated the South Vietnamese soldiers more than they did the Viet Cong. So what he's saying right there is I'm gonna read that again. My soldiers from the night division hated the South Vietnamese soldiers more than they did the Viet Cong. That's horrible situation. They saw them coming in going out. They saw them going out on operations and not beating the enemy, but voiding the enemy, they called it search and avoid where it was supposed to be search and destroy. My betine could go all the way through the same area and come back bloodied and battered that really got to my guys. I was walking the perimeter one night. I used the British system of STAN to in the evening where everybody was at their post with a weapon ready to go just as the sun was going down. One of my sniper said, sir. How's the body count today? And I said, not so good. We only had eight or nine for the day for the battalion. And he said, well, I'll get you two more before I could stop him. He took out a sniper rifle, I looked down at the end of the weapon to see you where it was pointed. And it was pointed at two South Vietnamese. Soldiers guarding a bridge about forty meters from my perimeter. I knocked the weapon up before you had a chance to scream squeeze off around. This is the attitude of a lot of soldiers. They didn't like the South Vietnamese because they didn't pull their weight. Question. Why did massacres occur in Vietnam Hackworth. Well, the big massacre was me lie Lieutenant William Kelly and captain Medina where the principal characters involved in that act. Why did they have that occur? It occurred for number of reasons. The soldiers were frustrated. They were mainly frustrated because of mines and booby traps, and because they could never find the enemy, they were just tripping through minefields and seeing their mates blown away. Never grabbing hold of the enemy and getting into a real fight. Then there's a lot of people in a village and then insanity takes over and they just start blowing human beings away. It's also about bad leadership. Tenant, Kelly gone through officer candidate school. He'd gone through three separate courses was found wanting in leadership in two of them and had been recycled instead of being booted out. The military was into a numbers game and didn't want to have a try high attrition rate for their officers. They kept recycling someone until they graduated. So here's a guy who never should have been trusted more than an army PFC ends up Lieutenant. He's with a platoon of soldiers who extremely frustrated because of mines booby traps, and he doesn't have the leadership ability to control them to say, stop that fire. I think massacres occur when you don't have strong leadership when you don't have soldiers who are extremely well trained and well, disciplined and well controlled by their leaders. That's what happened. All those components fell apart. And I think the book that we covered on the meal massacre actually gave even better details obviously, gave better details because it's a full book, but I really was one of the key things. I remember I remember how the intelligence escalated escalated and I'll tell you something else. He saying that you know that Lieutenant Kelly couldn't stop them. Lieutenant Kelly lead that massacre he led the massacre wasn't him saying, oh, I can't get control the guys. No, he was actually doing the massacre and they were. They were actually following. And that wraps up that. That wraps up the interview has kind of abrupt ending. I don't know why it's so abrupt, I looked around to see if there was anything that was missing, but that's that's how the that's how the interview ends, but I wanted to go from there..

We'll pick up there in a minute. I wanna come back to talking about the stuff that we started out talking about which is sort of tackling these big ten polish IP that are now part of TV. There was a time when this was just movies, but now it's TV and it's, you know, we're doing this crossover stuff and Meredith and Chris, you guys are both tackling the stuff. Let's talk about John wick and how you start to figure out the TV show that takes place in this world because those movies are sharks, right? I don't know that those movies sustain a TV show now. So how do you start to think about what is the TV show and how did those conversations even start to happen with you? Well, you know, I had an met Kano a few years ago on a project. He was developing called John rain, and we had, you know, me and my friend Marc Abrahams, who co created the show with me, we're approached by cana- got hired and and ultimately that that series, we developed it for over two and a half years we had. We were teed up for, you know, we had, we now are in a place to make it. And I think because of the timing of it all we were expecting expected to go a lot faster and it changed homes a couple of times. So by that time, John wicked. Really hit its stride, and I think you know, was looking at, you know, different opportunities that came out of that. So it wasn't the right timing for John rain, but we get the relationship going and you know, I've developed now three projects with Kano in the end. He introduced me to the directors, John weak- chats the Helsinki in the and Chad ni- a wind up doing for projects together a while. So that's how sort of, and then Lionsgate you know, I had met them on a show called crash, and then you know, we just we had been trying to find a project together in hadn't. And then finally, when the continental came up, you know, they just said, you know, please tell Chris come it. So I did in let us convince them. And so they cooked up in house, outlines gay mold. They know that they, they knew that they wanted to do a seer.

So how do you start to throw that as you're working on with three also? Well, so I'm not the continental won't be a the continent. Continental, you see in the movies, it's going to be based in LA.
