To which I want to ask him 'Why?'
Very simply: they need to pull in a large enough contemporary audience to cover their costs and make some profit, and their estimation is that the hard core AR readership isn't enough to do that.
Of course they may be wrong, but as they are putting in the money, and making a film costs mind boggling amounts of money- nothing reaches the screen by accident and for instance, the children's socks and suitcases have to be 1930s style, sourced and paid for, and somebody paid to do that...
So they have to decide what will pull them in. Using SA as a base gives them a head start, but they need more. They're doing what they need to do to get it made at all.
