'We really tried to stay true to the spirit and true to the book which we did so I think [the fans will] enjoy that', he later added. Talking about working on the set, he gushes: 'It's such a great group of people, everyone at Lionsgate are fantastic, the producers are fantastic, the cast has been incredible - really talented people, really nice people to be around, it was really fun on set.'
