“A few days before starting to film INCONCEIVABLE, I got a call telling me that Faye broke her foot. They told me she would not be able to stand, and would I think about recasting. I thought about the year and how far we’d come and told the studio I would rewrite her part. Everyone told me could not do it in time. I said, ‘Give me twelve hours’ and I would cover everyone, and so I set out to rewrite her entire role that we had worked on for a year in the twelve hours. I do not to this day think she ever knew, but when she got to set, I arranged for each scene she was in to be sitting and we blocked the scenes around her in such a way that one would have never known she was hurt. She was in so much pain each day, but as the true professional she was, she showed up , she worked hard and we shot her part.” He continues, “Beatty told me, ‘I am amazed how fast Jonathan worked to re-write Faye’s part; this is what makes him unique as a writer/producer/director.’”
Dunaway also appears in a biographical documentary nearing completion on Baker by director Nick Thibedeau, called BECOMING ICONIC. That film chronicles Baker’s life as a writer, actor, reality star and business owner, culminating in his feature directing debut on INCONCEIVABLE. A number of other directors from Adrian Lyne and Taylor Hackford to Jodie Foster provide both a master class on directing as well as encouragement and advice for Baker on his journey.
