TIFF: The Informant Director Steven Soderbergh

Post  Brittany on Wed Sep 23, 2009 12:22 pm

Alex Billington did an interview with Steven Soderbergh during the Toronto Film Festival, mostly centred around his film "The Informant" which stars Matt Damon. Here's an excerpt from the interview, where he talks about his next project with Gina Carano:

Talking a bit about Matt Damon, and I just love him in general, you work with him so much, but you also often cast unknown actresses in films like The Girlfriend Experience and yet you brought back Matt for this. I was wondering if you've ever considered a vice versa of that situation where you bring in someone new for a big studio feature.

Soderbergh: Well, I'm about to do that now. I'm building a whole movie around Gina Carano so I love doing that. In that case I just felt like why aren't there more women around who can carry a gun? It seems to be a very small list and she's really intriguing, and so the whole idea is to kind of — as we did with Sasha but on a very different scale with a very different intent. Let's build something around her and sort of wind her in to it and take advantage of what she is and what she can do. That's kind of fun. It can be scary and for people who are financing films it's a sort of nervous-making proposition because there's not a built-in movie audience for her but in this case I feel she's actually got– she has a following and I feel like she's someone who I think is going to emerge in some way and I feel like well, let's be the first because if it wasn't us, I feel like it would be somebody would be coming to her and saying, "You should be in a movie."

I think it is awesome how cutting edge he is. I also like the fact that Gina is willing to have fun and do a movie. What Steven Stodrebergh is doing is getting back to the basics of making movies. Yes there were actors back in the day but when move came around none of them knew how to do it. It was a fun and cutting edge to them. I can't wait to see the movie.

I agree with you Linda, and I also can't wait for the movie. I'm hoping that Gina will have a great time, and I'm sure she will. Very Happy Something very different for her.

It's obviously a great experience for her and I'm sure she'll have fun. Which I'm sure we'll hear about in a couple interviews sometime in the future.
