“It’s fair that [Heard] said that [about the character being pared down], because she wasn’t in my head as I was working on this movie.

From the start, I pitched that the first film would be a ‘Romancing The Stone ‘-type thing — an action-adventure romantic comedy — while the second would be an outright buddy comedy. I wanted to do ‘Tango & Cash!”
