Glenn Close Dishes On GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Revealing why she signed on for the James Gunn-directed Marvel adaptation, acting veteran Glenn Close talks a bit about her Nova Prime role in Guardians of the Galaxy. Check out what she offers!
Glenn Close spoke vaguely about her Nova Prime role in Guardians of the Galaxy back in June while she was attending the 18th Nantucket Film Festival. When an attendee of the Q&A had suggested that great thespians, like herself, are lately stuck in big special effects movies instead of great independent films, Close responded that studios have lately become owned by bigger corporations. “I just did two independent films this summer and I had an absolute ball with fantastic actors,” she said. “But in August, I'm gonna go off and do the next generation of Marvel Comics/Disney and I get to be the chief police of the galaxy.” Glenn Close then incompletely uttered that she'd only done the smaller films and wanted to do something different. “But I'm doing that because it will then afford me to go do the other kind of movies that I really love, and hopefully I will have a great time [on Guardians of the Galaxy]. It'll be a new experience for me, but practically speaking it will mean that I can do those smaller movies and it'll be okay.” In related news, Glenn Close apparently started shooting Guardians of the Galaxy today as Drax the Destroyer actor Dave Bautista tweeted that he was “more than star struck by a certain cast member today.” Plus, Twitter also spotted the Nova Prime actress with John C. Reilly, who plays Nova Corps officer Rhomann Dey, as the two attended a live show at the Palace Theatre in London last night. Anyhow, for video of the quotes from Glenn Close above, skip to the 4:52 mark below. What do you think?
