Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson on Their Great Chemistry in ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’

-

With director Patrick Hughes’ The Hitman’s Bodyguard opening this weekend in theaters, I recently landed an exclusive interview with stars Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson. They talked about their great chemistry, how much of their dialogue was scripted and how much was made up in the moment, shooting in London, Bulgaria and Amsterdam, coming up with alternate lines and jokes the night before filming or making it up on the spot, and more. In addition, with Reynolds hard at work on Deadpool 2 and Jackson getting ready to start filming M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass (the sequel to Unbreakable), I got updates on both projects.

As most of you know from the trailers, the film stars Ryan Reynolds as the world’s top protection agent who gets tasked with serving as the bodyguard for his mortal enemy, a notorious assassin played by Samuel L. Jackson. The film is an action comedy through and through and Reynolds and Jackson’s chemistry is a blast to watch. The film also stars Salma Hayek and Gary Oldman.

Check out what they had to say in the player above and below is exactly what we talked about followed by the synopsis and red-band trailer.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Hitman’s Bodyguard and red-band trailer:

The world’s top protection agent [Ryan Reynolds] is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world’s most notorious hitmen [Samuel L. Jackson]. The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. During their raucous and hilarious adventure from England to the Hague, they encounter high-speed car chases, outlandish boat escapades and a merciless Eastern European dictator [Gary Oldman] who is out for blood. Salma Hayek joins the mayhem as Jackson’s equally notorious wife. The film will be “hitting” your theatres on August 18.
