Last weekend, the six stars from Screen Gems’ upcoming heist film Takers sat down to talk with the media, and I was there. Takers follows a close-knit crew of thieves who plan the perfect heist, one that will leave them set for life. Of course, the cops have to chase the robbers, and the robbers aren’t even sure if they can trust each other. Stars Idris Elba, Hayden Christensen, Jay Hernandez, Michael Ealy, Chris Brown, and Tip T.I. Harris all had plenty to say about planning the perfect heist, working together, and their upcoming projects including Jumper 2 and Thor! You can watch all three interviews after the jump.
First Up, Chris Brown and Michael Ealy discuss taking “as much as you can”, playing brothers, and testosterone fueled filmmaking including firing big guns and doing your own stunts.
Next Jay Hernandez and Actor/producer Tip T.I. Harris discuss looting the Louvre, wearing two hats (Actor/and producer), and being “left out” of the on screen crew.
Finally Hayden Christiansen and Idris Elba talk the Colonel’s Original Recipe, practical effects vs. CGI, and upcoming projects Jumper 2 and Thor!
Screen Gems’ Takers, directed by John Luessenhop, steals its way into theaters August 27.
