Reflecting on the timeline of her projects, Sweeney humorously pointed out the juxtaposition of her best and worst releases happening within a short timeframe. She highlighted how ‘Madame Web’ led to important connections within the studio network, ultimately paving the way for her involvement in ‘Anyone But You.’

During the filming of ‘Madame Web,’ Sweeney took the opportunity to build relationships with executives at Sony, which played a crucial role in the development of ‘Anyone But You.’ She explained, “I called up Sony and I said, ‘Hey, I have this movie. We’re filming together, let’s build a relationship.’ And that’s how ‘Anyone But You’ got made. I would never have been able to do that without ‘Madame Web.'”
