Not wanting to take any of the momentum away from Snakes on a Plane, Snakes co-star Nathan Phillips talked about his next pic, the action film Redline. The only problem is that he doesn't sound too excited about it.
Nathan Phillips On Redline
The good people over at MovieHole have caught up to Nathan Phillips and got him to discuss the upcoming film Redline and all the issues it had before production.
How did “Redline” go?
It was the big Hollywood story of late – we had Billy Zane directing it, and then he dropped out, and basically it just became this big Lost in La Mancha kinda thing, except this is just…well, Lost. It was a fun experience; I’ll admit that, I just don’t know what to think of the film. I think I feel so nervy about it because there was so much disruption and the filmmaking experience just wasn’t the way I know it, and like it to be. It was the complete opposite – and I was in the middle of this kinda of, storm.
Are you a lead in it?
Yeah, I’m the lead. All I became in the end was an action hero. I went to so much trouble to look the part – I trained with weapons and all that stuff – so I just hope some of that transpires to the screen. I just don’t know what to think of it yet. The film does have one thing going for it – and that’s the fact that it’s using cars all these prestigious….. Actually, two things – it has this hot, hot lead actress in it named Nadia Bjorlin.
The girl they’re talking about for Wonder Woman?
Yeah, and for sure, she’d be the perfect choice for Wonder Woman. She would be perfect for Wonder Woman. She looks like Wonder Woman. I hope she gets it, because she is amazing…. An amazing, beautiful, woman – who is actually a great singer, opera-trained, but people probably don’t know that – that has a lot to offer to the world.
How was it being an action hero in “Redline”?
Man I had to take on all these guys at once - it was insane. I put so many guys in hospital, because when you’re using that much energy, you just can’t pull back a punch. I’d be so shaken up after it. I think I ended up buying about four slabs of beer throughout filming, to give to the stunt guys, just to say thank you.
