The actress spoke to she:
“It was really important for me to hire a female writer, because when I joined the project, it was just director Len wiseman and another guy. And I was like, ‘this is not going to work’. So I interviewed five or six female screenwriters. And we hired Emerald Fennell, and I’m very proud of it.”
