Last year, when The Expendables 3 was filming in Bulgaria, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters. Usually during a break in filming I’ll do interviews with the cast. But due to how much was going on that day, interviews were tough to come by. Thankfully, Lionsgate recently got me on the phone with Antonio Banderas for an exclusive interview. He talked about how he got involved in the project, not wanting to play a villain, his character’s backstory, the weapons, if it was a competitive set, director Patrick Hughes, and more. He also talked about working with Terrence Malick and the director’s unique way of working, Puss in Boots 2, and if he’ll be directing again. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
