I don’t really believe in originality, because there are a limited number of stories, but there’s an unlimited number of ways to tell them… I believe it is only theft if you take somebody’s idea before they’ve realized it and say it was your own, and then you’re just a full-on asshole… [But] if you take something that moved you and you make another version, I think that’s just beautiful. I think that’s just the nature of creating things.
