Will G.I. JOE: RETALIATION Strike A Chord With Audiences Next Month?
"Firefly is ex-Joe, a pyrotechnics expert who decided it'd be more fun on the other side," says Ray Stevenson on his G.I.Joe: Retaliation character. Plus, words from producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and director Jon M. Chu.
In the latest issue of Total Film magazine there's interviews with the stars of G.I.Joe: Retaliation and info on the some of the film's key scenes. Below, you can read a few excerpts from producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Ray Stevenson and director Jon M. Chu.
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura on the difference between previous G.I.Joe director Stephen Sommers and Jon Chu.
"Stephen Sommers is really successful at what he does, that's a particular tone that he had and some people love it. I tend to gravitate towards a more reality-based feeling. When Jon M. Chu first came in, that was the first thin he said: 'I gotta make it more reality-based.'
Ray Stevenson discusses his villainous character, Firefly.
"Firefly is ex-Joe, a pyrotechnics expert who decided it'd be more fun on the other side He's kind of homicidal - it's all a bit of a joke to him, blowing up cities."
Director Jon M. Chu on why he wanted to make a G.I. Joe film.
"We don't have laser guns in this, we have physical fights. I wanted to make the G.I. Joe I dreamed of growing up, making it a little bit dirtier, feeling the scratches, feeling the punches. And also asking the question, 'What does it mean to be a hero in this day and age?"
