Entertainment Weekly: You were supposed to direct Hugo four years ago, but it fell through. Is it harder to get movies made these days?
SCORSESE: We had a meeting with [Warner Bros.] and I felt there was no enthusiasm on their part. I had just done a couple of pictures—The Aviator and The Departed—where we were on the same page. But if they're not gung ho about it, what are we doing here? Making a product, but I want everyone to be enthusiastic. -Entertainment Weekly November 18, 2011
Note: Hugo was eventually done at Paramount Pictures-Dankwa Brooks
