Talking about the making of the film, Hanks said: “Here are the five points of Rubicon that anyone who makes films must overcome: The first Rubicon that you pass is to say yes to the movie. Your fate is sealed. You will be in that movie.
“The second Rubicon is when you actually see the movie that you made. Either it works and it’s the movie you want to make, or it doesn’t work and that’s not the movie you want to make.”
He added: “That has nothing to do with Rubicon number three, the critical reaction to it. Someone will say, ‘I hate it.’ Others might say, ‘I think it’s brilliant.’ Somewhere between these two is the actual content of the film. The fourth Rubicon is the film’s commercial performance. Because, if it doesn’t make money, your career will go bankrupt sooner than you’d like. That’s just the truth. That is business. The fifth Rubicon is time.”
He says it’s hard to predict how a movie will turn out, stating: “You have to trust the whole process in the hands of the collaborators you hope to work with at the top of the line. in their game later. You can only have faith and hope – and what is greater than faith and hope?”
