At the Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive interview with producer Dan Lin. During our wide ranging conversation we talked about making Gangster Squad, editing, the test screenings, improv on set, and more. In addition, with Lin producing a number of other projects, I got updates on Sherlock Holmes 3, The Lego Movie, Suicide Squad, the ACME movie, Brotherhood, Moses, and much more. Hit the jump for the interview.
