Eventually, James Wan sums up this fruitful collaboration in the simplest possible way, all of this being above all a matter of friendship between the two men: “I spent many years hanging out with Patrick on set, and we would just have fun and talk about all the movies we loved growing up. So I’m not at all surprised that Patrick aspires to do more things behind the camera. I like working with this guy”.

He understands me, I understand him, and we kind of have a very abbreviated way of working. We trust each other and that makes things fun. Making a film can be very stressful, so it’s nice to surround yourself with people you enjoy working with”, he concludes.
