The tipster stated to the entertainment news outlet:
“Acting just doesn’t hold the appear that it once did, especially after having a family. For so long, he and Amal have dealt with what many ither people couples do – scheduling – and have felt themselves going in opposite directions. George feels it’s time to change that.”

An insider claimed:
“George sees the film as kind of an outlier in Hollywood these days. Most movies are made for the TikTok generation and this one stars two over-50 actors.”

Talking to the entertainment news outlet, George Clooney said:
"I mean, you always have to fight. I'm also doing a film with Brad [Pitt] for Apple and that's a big-budget film. The secret is you have to work to guarantee that there's also a theatrical release. There's nothing more exciting than watching a comedy in a room full of people, or a scary movie. I find that part of our job is always to make sure that we're protecting the integrity of having films in theaters ... But honestly, theaters weren't jumping at taking a lot of the films that that I've been making for a long time. They were like, 'Yeah, that's not really our thing anymore.' So the streamers have really opened up a door in a way to keep those kinds of stories alive."
Despite the wide coverage and convenience that streaming brings to the table, George Clooney still believes in the significance of movies being shown in theaters. He even said that there is nothing more exciting than watching a comedy in a room full of people.
