Some excerpts from the riveting Q&A are given ahead. Dave spoke about how things clicked into place and how fortunate they were that they could get Jesse onboard:

"We're also very fortunate that that we started the company around the time, just logistically that Jesse was putting the script out into the world. We're very close with him and we just want to work with people that we love and we trust, and it was just kind of Kismet that way."

Stone, about her Zombieland co-star, Eisenberg, said:

"He’s the most curious person I’ve ever met. He studies everyone and asks so many questions. He has a deep empathy to him. I knew that from acting with him, so it just felt like a no-brainer that we’d attempt to work on something with him."

According to IMDB, the story of the movie revolves around a mother, Evelyn (Moore), and her son, Ziggy (Wolfhard), looking for 'replacements for each other.' It progresses with Evelyn attempting to 'parent an unassuming teenager at her shelter, while Ziggy fumbles through his pursuit of a brilliant young woman at school.' Regarding the new project, Emma Stone stated:

"It was an incredibly personal story to him that felt like something none of us had seen before. That's pretty much ticking every box of anything we could hope to be involved with."
