Some of the remarks took aim at Perry, who wrote, directed and starred in the film, for his recent remarks about not having a writer’s room for his projects.
“I don’t know if you know this, but all shows on television have a writers room and most of the time there are ten people, 12, whatever that write on these television shows,” Perry said on Instagram. “I have no writers room. Nobody writes any of my work. I write it all.”
The comments drew criticism from fans and those who disapproved of his new film echoed those sentiments.
Yet not everyone criticized the film, which Bresha Webb, who plays the public defender, told People Now took five days to shoot.
Some praised the thriller, the second one in Perry’s filmography after 2018’s “Acrimony.”
