Joe Wright interview HANNA slice

With director Joe Wright’s action/survival film Hanna opening tomorrow, I recently got to speak with him at the Los Angeles press junket.  While I loved Pride & Prejudice and Atonement, I was definitely let down by his last film, The Soloist.  Thankfully, Hanna is a fantastic movie filled with amazing performances and an awesome soundtrack by The Chemical Brothers.  While some directors work in the same genre again and again, Wright has shown that he has the skills to work in any genre.  For more on the film, here’s a bunch of clips and our write up from WonderCon.

During the interview we talked about film vs. digital and why, 3D, how did he get The Chemical Brothers to do the score, does he read online sites, why does he do sych long takes (says it has to do with the budget), and I asked what’s his go to karaoke song.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, if you missed my video interview with Saoirse Ronan, click here. Look for my video interviews with Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana soon.
