Paul has final cut
Ideally, the studio and director have nailed down the details before filming begins. New Line production's president and COO, Michael De Luca, has given Boogie Nights director Paul Thomas Anderson final cut on his next film, Magnolia; he says that it is vital to have as many meetings as possible before the deal with the filmmaker is even signed. "It's something in general we'd rather not do, but after Boogie Nights it became part of Paul's deal," De Luca says. "But Paul and I are so close it's a trust issue." (De Luca also supported the two and a half hour running time of Boogie Nights and says he only regrets that the movie wasn't longer "with a disco intermission.")
