We had shot eight months of her story and it was all thrown away," he said. "The Last of Us guys came in, and you have to understand, new producers, new people, they want to do it. I don’t know what happened exactly. Amy is still a very, very dear friend of mine, and she’s brilliant, but The Last of Us guys were the next team there so they took over and they just wanted their own flavour. They got rid of some of the other people that were involved and just redid their thing.”
