With director Jason Winer’s (Modern Family) Arthur opening this weekend, I was able to interview the cast as a reporter for our partners at Omelete. As most of you know, the film is a remake of the 1981 Dudley Moore comedy and stars Russell Brand as a wealthy playboy who risks losing his inheritance when he falls for a woman (Greta Gerwig) that his family does not approve of. The movie also stars Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner, Luis Guzman and Nick Nolte. For more on the film, click here for seven clips and the full synopsis.
During my interview with Gerwig we talked about how she prepared for playing a New York City tour guide, doing improv with Russell Brand, did she ever get to enjoy the Batmobile or other cool cars on set, has she been to Brazil, what’s her karaoke song, and she reveals that she’s writing with the hopes of making a film later this year. Hit the jump to watch.
Finally, if you missed my extended interview with Gerwig for No Strings Attached, you can watch it here. During that interview we talked a lot about Whit Stillman’s (Metropolitan, Barcelona, The Last Days of Disco) new movie Damsels in Distress, which is one of my most anticipated films of 2011.
