When asked about Drake, Ford said:
Greg and I are both longtime admirers of Drake’s talent – With Zoe we feel as if he is come up with a potentially commercial and critical success, and he has already attached an outstandingly talented cast in Charlie and Lea. We’re genuinely excited about the film’s global box-office potential.
We are delighted to be working with Drake again after what was a very satisfying experience making Equals together. He has assembled a fascinating cast for this next project and we are very much looking to continuing what has been a very successful collaboration.
