Is this movie too 'white' to be made today?
When Apollo 13 was made, the lack of diversity was probably not given a second thought. This was history, and accuracy rules. I find it hard to believe that this 'very white male' movie would be green lit (let alone given a blockbuster budget )in 2018.
The US is increasingly becoming more diverse, and Hollywood is rightly looking to reflect this diversity. So I am glad that they got movie in the can before Hollywood could say...Good story but too much white male!
