While chatting with Rotten tomatoesIt has been suggested that the Oscar-winning couple do a Godfather II-style sequel with Close. They immediately agreed, with Thompson even saying she would write the film and Stone saying she would be on board. Thompson replied cheerfully:
“I’m writing the letter now. Does anyone actually have any paper?” Dear Mr. Disney … “Oh, is he still there? I don’t even know. Please, can we do exactly what was just suggested in the interview? Me send it. Oh my god … this is really good – ok! “
