Bettany said in the announcement, "It's my intention to surround myself with hugely talented people and then claim all the credit. I have great actors, great producers and a great city to shoot in – plus I'm hoping to keep alive the time-honored tradition sacred to directors and seduce my leading actress."
Producer Daniel Wagner stated, "We are excited and honored for the opportunity to work with Paul on his directorial debut and on such a high-caliber project. This is a terrific story that will captivate audiences worldwide and we look forward to bringing it to the big screen."
