Now playing in theaters is director Paul W.S. Anderson’s disaster epic Pompeii.  The film stars Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) as an enslaved Celtic gladiator named Milo who falls in love with a noblewoman (Emily Browning) on the eve of a massive volcanic eruption that destroys Pompeii, an event that also brings him face-to-face with the man (Kiefer Sutherland) who slaughtered his family years earlier.  The film also stars Jared HarrisAdewale Akinnuoye-AgbajeCarrie-Anne MossSasha RoizJessica Lucas, and Paz Vega.

At the Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Anderson.  He talked about the challenge of bringing Pompeii to life, the visual effects, deleted scenes, whether the script changed during the development process, the status of Resident Evil 6, and a lot more.  Hit the jump for what he had to say.

Paul W.S. Anderson:

  • The challenge of making Pompeii come to life and the great visual effects.
  • Do actors enjoy working with him since he always puts them work very hard on set.
  • The challenges of working with the ash on set.
  • How long was his assembly cut?
  • How much did the film change during the long development process?
  • What’s the status of the next Resident Evil movie?
  • Does he think RE: 6 could be his next project?
