“It wasn’t about not making studio movies. At that time, what interested me was making other types of films. A smaller one about a guy with Asperger’s Syndrome, falling in love with a woman with Asperger’s Syndrome. A true story, which ended up being called ‘Mozart And The Whale,’ explained Harnett. “It was the opposite of what I didn’t want to do. And I always try to see things that way.” “I would love the opportunity to work with a great artist from our film culture. Regardless of what kind of movies they make and in that case, I think my regret was not working with Christopher Nolan. More than not ending up doing Batman,” he added.
