PostSubject: Salt - Movie   Sun Jul 19, 2009 9:46 pm

It's an old interview during the Transformers 2 promo but there's a mention of Salt. Producer of SALT--Lorenzo Di Bonaventura opens up about movie Smile Original link is here


Quote :
Question: I spoke to a friend of mine the other day, Phil Noyce, about Salt. We've known each other since 1982, so we go way back.

di Bonaventura: Ah, you're dating yourself.

Question: I know, it's terrible. He insisted on reminding me on how old -

di Bonaventura: Ah, fantastic.

Question: And he was very impassioned about this project. How excited are you about it, and how different is it from the original Tom Cruise version?

di Bonaventura: Well, I mean, it's a really exciting project, in part because Philip did such a great job. And the other part is Angelina's commitment to it, and her willingness to push the character in very bold ways, make it a very exciting project to have been part of. You know, it was weird, because when we set out to change the script from a male lead to a female lead, we really thought the challenge was, "Okay, how do you make Salt, the character, female?" And the answer is, that was a bit of work. But what was surprised to all of us was, there was at least as much if not more work on all the other characters around the character. Because people react completely differently to a woman than they do a man. Or a man to a woman. So actually, it was a much harder job than we originally anticipated, because we suddenly realized, "We have to change all the character's reactions." The plot has a lot of similarity, so that wasn't really the challenge of it. Although even there, you know, there are movie conventions that we are all familiar with - and frankly, they're novel conventions. You know, the night in shining armor comes in to save the damsel in distress. In many male action pictures, that's what happens.

Question: Right.

di Bonaventura: But when you change it to a woman coming in to save the man in distress, it's such an utter dynamic difference. Because we're not used to seeing men get rescued by women. And it puts a real pressure on the man character to feel manly enough, if you understand what I'm saying.

Question: Right. And Phil, who'd worked with Angelina before, many years ago, was raving about her performance in this movie.

di Bonaventura: Yeah. It really was - it was amazing to watch. Her commitment to her character was so thorough. It was so exciting. And it so elevated what the movie could be.
