"Danny De Vito turned us down"
"We were with CAA, the agency, and our agent set over the script for Super Mario Bros. and I read it and I hated it, but I sort of loved the concept for it. I said to Annabel, I said, ‘This script is terrible but I think this could be our Batman!’"
"I had to stand by with the new script, obviously, and tell them that it was great when I knew it wasn’t."
