**Quotes for the direcotr for those who don't like extensive reading**
"It's a much more intimate story than 'Pirates.' Although its an adventure, itís a dramatic adventure. I see it more along the lines of 'Blade Runner.'"
"I think we'll go right up to the edge with the Little Sisters. I donít want to soften it to the point where the core audience feels betrayed."
"We're prepared to make it an R-rated movie. I donít intuitively see it as PG-13. The content and the graphic nature of the story itself is smarter than that. It's not for young kids."
