Drumming said he wasn’t sure of Scaramucci’s intentions investing in the project, and had some “uncomfortable conversations” with him about it. But upon finishing the film, which was distributed by Ava DuVernay’s ARRAY (then AFFRM), Scaramucci told Drumming that if he “ever made the money to pay [Scaramucci] back, that [he] should, instead, roll it back into [his] next film.”
