The Above the Line column on director James Mangold (Variety, Feb. 6-12) described the film “Heavy” as being self-financed. While Mangold used that term to point out that “Heavy” was not financed by a distributor or other company, the director did not mean to suggest he covered the budget himself. The film was produced by Richard Miller with funds raised from private sources.
