It's the best script of the three by far. It will be the best movie of the three. This will be our third film that we will work on together. “We have an understanding between us.”

It's the biggest story of the three with the highest stakes and Maxine has been through a lot at this point. So when we find her in this new world, she's just a force to be reckoned with and goes through some pretty wild adventures..”
