Joe Benigno: When was the moment...that you said you know what, I may have to move on?

Russo: I’ll give you the moment when Mel the last few days said to me “Chris, here’s the deal. I’m giving you a movie. You direct it, you produce it and you star in it. I’m not going to offer you this job when you’re 54 years of age. I’m not going to give this job to anybody else if you say no. But produce, direct, star.” I just said you know what, it’s worth a shot. I’m looking forward to it. That’s when I decided to do this.
