A few weeks ago, I was able to sit down for an interview with Sylvain White, the director of Warner Bros' The Losers, which hit theaters this weekend. Although his first film, Stomp the Yard, was not my cup of tea, I've actually been looking forward to talking with White ever since he got attached to The Losers nearly two years ago. Thankfully, this turned out great and White was a delight to talk with. It quickly becomes a fascinating interview as we chat about his inspiration and his career and obviously his work on The Losers. We also get into a little bit of spoiler talk at the end. Other than that, it's a great interview, so check it out!
Watch my full interview with The Losers director Sylvain White:
This interview was shot using my Flip Mino camera, so expect a little graininess to the video and soft audio. This is my follow-up to my interview with Jeffrey Dean Morgan last week. Going into this, I wanted to focus on how he got from something like Stomp the Yard to The Losers and why he's so interested in comic book movies and his approach to this one in particular (hopefully you've seen it). If you've never read or seen an interview with Sylvain White before, it's actually very interesting to hear about his inspirations and passion for filmmaking. I really enjoyed The Losers and I'm looking forward to whatever it is that White directs next.
