After years of promising a kick ass action flick, its time to finally unleash Battle: Los Angeles, the latest movie from South African director Jonathan Liebesman, who started in horror but has transitioned into pure action. I've known Jonathan since meeting him at Sundance years ago to talk about his film The Killing Room and have kept in touch since, following along as he got attached to and finally shot Battle: LA (down in Baton Rouge, LA). He's already in the UK preparing Clash of the Titans 2, but I caught up with Jonathan while he was in LA recently to talk about (spoiler free!) Battle: LA and making a badass sci-fi action movie.
Watch our video interview with Battle: Los Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman:
This is a follow-up to my interview with Battle: LA's lead actor Aaron Eckhart - talking about what it was like to shoot this with Liebesman. And yes, I suck at lighting my apologies, but it should still look okay. I've seen Battle: Los Angeles and I think Liebesman not only delivers an awesome sci-fi action flick, but proves he's really growing as a director and becoming better and better every movie. I always love talking with him because he's a movie lover at heart who just wants to make the kind of great films we all love seeing. I can't wait for everyone else to finally be able to experience Battle: LA this weekend - it kicks some serious ass!
