Sound Bite: Clive Owen – was it a big shoot for him
It was very big, yeah. I mean we were in incredible locations. We were traveling you know we shot a huge part in Berlin and then we did a bit in Leon and then we went to Milan and New York and Istanbul I mean they were serious locations.
Sound Bite: Clive Owen – are you a traveler by nature
I tend to travel by work really. I mean there’s a lot of travel involved in shooting movies very often but not moreso than in this film.
Sound Bite: Clive Owen – you don’t get to see a whole lot cause you’re working
This is true, this is true. It’s very limited. You don’t really get that time out to be a proper tourist and go and do everything. I mean you do get to see a bit of it, but you pretty much hit the ground running in these places and you’re seeing a hotel and the set.
Sound Bite: Clive Owen – this film’s very timely
It’s been very properly well-researched you know and its incredible how timely it is because you know this film was being written and developed for a couple years. If you consider, we stopped researching a year ago and since we’ve stopped shooting the attention and the way that banks have been collapsing the way they are and they way people are asking questions about where the money’s being used appropriately is everything this film’s about so it’s very timely.
Sound Bite: Clive Owen – the vibe of the film
It’s I mean the whole vibe of the film is that Naomi and I are very small human beings you know desperately trying to bring down this you know completely powerful multi-national company and how difficult that is.
Sound Bite: Clive Owen – did he know Naomi
Yes I knew Naomi, I’ve known her for a few years on and off just down, and we’ve tried to work together a few times, we nearly did, and then uh I was thrilled when she did this, yeah.
Sound Bite: Clive Owen – it’s almost impossible to work with who you want to work with
But films are like that, you know you think they come together very easily, the stories behind every single film that you’ll see about how they started, how they turn into this, how it got stalled there, you know has someone been working on this for like, every film has a story, very few films come together simply and easily.
