    • David Cronenberg: Scanners was a nightmare to make, right from the first day of shooting. We actually had nothing to shoot, poor [production designer] Carol Spier… had not had time to prepare much of what was necessary for this very elaborate, sort of futuristic scanner-war-city scenario, and we were sort of driving around looking for things to shoot, really, it was very bizarre. And I was writing it from 4:00 to 7:00 every morining, because there was no script, the script was not finished; an ordeal by fire, rather than a trial by fire.
