Baker also talks about when he was growing up all he wanted to do was make movies and while he was an avid consumer he noticed the lack of movies that reflected our LGBTQ community. When his director and producer asked him what kind of movie he wanted to do, he remembered all the movies like “Cruel Intentions” and “Wild Things” and “Scream” and movies that had that balance of tone where the things could be really funny but they could also kill people so Chris came back with the script for ‘The Estate’.
