IGBY GOES DOWN director BURR STEERS had to rely on the goodwill of others
to get his film made - and feels blessed that so many big names were drawn to
The filmmaker - who had a role in PULP FICTION in his previous career as
an actor - admits without support from high profile stars and musicians, the
film would never have been made.
And with a stellar cast including SUSAN SARANDON, JEFF GOLDBLUM, KIERAN
CULKIN, RYAN PHILLIPPE and BILL PULLMAN, Steers admits he struck lucky.
He explains, "Had I not gotten them, the movie wouldn't have been made.
The money was raised on those people loving the script. They attached
themselves, despite my having no budget.
"Likewise, getting songs from COLDPLAY, THE DANDY WARHOLS, TRAVIS and
BADLY DRAWN BOY for the soundtrack was a big, big factor.
"I think music and movies always revive at the same time, and that's
happening right now."
