We were about three weeks into shooting and I said to them, “Tell me a little bit about the case." And they said, “Nooo, it’s just made up." I said, “No, I mean the story it’s based on." They said, “It’s not based on any story, we just made it up." I said, “Guys, it says at the beginning of the script, based on a true story." “Well, it’s not." I said, “You can’t do that." They said, “Why not?"
