Sanders | On 12, Jul 2013
With “Red 2″ hitting theaters July 19th, Dos Lives got to view this action packed comedy and got the scoop of how it was like filming.
How were you able to keep this movie jolly go lucky but yet still have mayhem ?
Jon Hoeber- What’s fun is the characters, with putting these characters in these situations in context in there later years and the fun in that, and also to celebrate action movie dramas.
How did you approach the subject of aging?
Erich Hoeber- I think that whatever age we are at we can never believe it, I’m 44 but I feel like a 18 year old, We try to embrace that a little bit, The characters never feel like that, and they are great at what they do, yet better with their experience .
How was it like shooting in Paris?
Dean Parisot- We started out shooting the Paris scenes in Canada, But with the film expanding we decided to go to Paris. When you have a car chase in Paris its really Paris. and you see everything, it has a different color, flavor, and vibe. It effect the way you shoot the scenes.
Can you talk about the way your character changed from the first film being timid and wanting to stay way from all the action to with the second film missing it?
Mary-Louise Parker- I think when you first see her she lives her life as a phone operator, and her outlet is reading these romance novels with adventure and I think that’s what she dreamed of and she was able to get a little taste of it and she just wanted more.
How does one prepare to make out with four or five men in the movie?
Mary-Louise Parker- Did I? Oh that was my idea, I’m not shy about kissing anyone, with various degrees of enjoyment, and kissing Bruce is up there and that was the only weapon she had.
How was it working with Bruce Willis?
Mary-Louise Parker-Hes very macho but yet so sweet, You can see that when he talks about his daughters,he really love his kids hes very good with kids, my children just loved him, when my son would see pictures of him he would tell me “mommy look its Bruce Wilson”. Hes the type of guy if someone came into room and was ready to fight all he had to do was look at them and take them out, and that really sexy.
There’s a very intense scene when you keep slapping Bruce, how many times you had to do that?
Mary-Louise Parker- I was shaking him and he was doing this really funny thing moving hes head around, But it hard to fake a slap so there was a few real ones in there.
Your character try’s to be sexy like Catherine Zeta-Jones but she is a bad ass in her own right, when did she realize that?
Mary-Louise Parker-She sees that Frank (Brice Willis) loves her for who she is, he loves the clumsy side of her, but everyonce in awhile she can make the right move.
Is there anything you did to shape your character from the first film to this one?
Bruce Willis- Ill talk about the romance, I got to kiss two women in the film which I don’t get to do in my other films. My character is so befuddled, I love to play characters that are a little behind the information.
Mary Luis Parker felt bad about slapping you so much should she feel bad about it?
Bruce Willis- I was slapped in the film? I didn’t see the final cut. I like that scene, I get to do something that I don’t really get to do in films, getting that daffy look on my face when coming out of unconsciousness. In that scene we winged…Whats the past tense of winged? We wong it? but we did get have some fun on the film ad she was really letting me have it.
Was there any pressure to out do yourself.
Bruce Willis- I was really excited to do this film, I don’t feel like I took it that seriously, We just had a ball.
How was it playing a bad ass in this film?
Helen Mirren- I love being a bad ass, from being a queen to being a bad ass in very cool. I love to reprise a character, they become a part of you personal life, she just a great funny character that one hasn’t seen before on the screen.
Would you consider doing a Superhero movie?
Helen MirrenOh yes but I would have to play the villain since I’m British, our role in life is to be bad.
How much did you prepare for this film?
Helen MirrenThe prep is learning how to use the gun, you really have to know how to use one. You have to learn to be free, its hard to be free on a film set, it really requires a great skill, I would always watch Bruce and take my lead from him.
Which actor in the golden ages do you think would be good to play Red 2?
Helen Mirren- Cary Grant. He has that wit, I’m a huge fan of his. And Betty Davis would play my character perfectly.
If you wasn’t in the world of fame, what do you think you life would be like?
Helen Mirren-I love Home Depot, they know me by name in home depot. In reality its hard to let go of our business, its hard to let go of the attention and you don’t think your addicted to it but when its gone you really craving it. With people on Facebook putting up what they are doing they feel that they are living in some kind of media telling the world they exists.
Will there be a RED 3?
Dean Parisot-There is a third in the works!
In RED 2, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world—and stay alive in the process.
