Eind augustus had ‘One Shot’ regisseur James Nunn een interview met Kungfukingdom.com over zijn opkomende films. Hierin praatte hij ook over zijn samenwerking met Ashley. Daarnaast is te lezen in het interview dat de planning is dat de film nog dit jaar uitkomt in de VS en GB. Helaas is nog niet bekend wanner dit precies zal zijn.
Working with Ashley Greene & Ryan Phillippe
That’s very fortunate, glad to hear it all went smoothly. On another topic, Scott will also appear alongside Ashley Greene and Ryan Phillippe in the movie, both of whom have Taekwondo backgrounds. Will they also get to demonstrate their martial arts in the film?
Yeah, they get involved as well. Ryan more so than Ashley does, but they both did great work. Ashley’s role is so technical as a CIA officer with all this information that needs to get out, and it’s similar to “Zero Dark Thirty”, and she has these scenes where she has to get all of this info, and this guy’s from here, and this guy’s from there – it’s difficult stuff and she’s just selling expositional every time – she was just such the right person for the job, I’m so grateful to have her in the movie.
Ryan was also great, he has the Taekwondo background as you said, and he did “Shooter” as well, so he comes with a lot of military knowledge as well. Even though we had military advisors on set, I don’t think he really needed them, because he played that character on “Shooter” for years, and he’s so well-versed in how to stand and speak and dress and hold a gun. He’s such a fun guy to work with, everyone got on really well, and I’m just dying to get people to see it, man!
“One Shot” Releases this Autumn/Fall in the UK & US
Well, per the recent announcement in Variety, “One Shot” will be released this fall. Is the holiday season the general timeframe for it?
Yeah, it’ll be out before the end of the year. I don’t know whether it’ll be October, November, or December, but I know it’s going to get a good release in the U.K. and the U.S. Buy it for yourself and your family for Christmas man!
