Opening this week is the Jason Statham-starrer Homefront. Adapted by Sylvester Stallone from the Chuck Logan novel, Homefront centers on DEA agent Phil Broker (Statham) who moves to a quiet town with his daughter (Izabela Vidovic) in order to start a new life, but winds up tangling with the local druglord (James Franco), his band of thugs, and meth’d-out sister (played by Kate Bosworth in a bit of a shocking turn). Homefront also stars Winona Ryder, Rachelle Lafevre, Clancy Brown, Omar Benson Miller and Frank Grillo. For more on the film, watch the red-band or regular trailer.
At the recent Los Angeles press day, I landed a video interview with Statham and Vidovic. They talked about doing the action scenes, rehearsals, playing a father and daughter, just how many Statham movies Izabela had seen before filming Homefront, and more. In addition, Statham talked about the script by Stallone, how the film attracted great actors to the supporting roles, and The Expendables 3 and Fast & Furious 7. Hit the jump to watch.
