    Not if you've got a script the star loves. There are dozens of unflinching indie films made every year with stars big enough to attract financing and distribution. What matters is what's at the heart of the film, not who's in it.

      True. But pick your 'who's' carefully. Some 'who's' come with baggage attached. The kind of baggage that can change things drastically from your original vision.

        Of course. This is why we had to step carefully when an notoriously difficult A lister's agent solicited a script we're developing. The guy just isn't right for the part and his reputation suggests the project would lose its core with him involved. As great it would be to have his name attached from a financing standpoint, we didn't want to doom ourselves to a couple years of misery and a film that lacked the heart of the original story.
