"Thie outpost, directed by Rod Lurie was a surprise hit over the Fourth of July weekend. It's sitting at 92% on rotten tomatoes, and to the extent that video on demand numbers are available, it seems to be a commercial success to CNN's Jake Tapper was inspired to write the book that was the basis for the movie. Justus. He became a new father. My son was born on October 2nd 2009. My son, Jack. On the attack was October 3rd 2009 the next day, and I was sitting in the hospital room holding my son and listening to the news. Tell me about the attack on combat outpost, Keating. And these eight other sons taken from this earth and so That poignant moment was What set me on the journey to find out who these men were and why they were there and The whole project Campers book was optioned and naturally went through some Hollywood twists and turns before the project found its director in Rod Lurie, a West Point graduate and director of the Contender and the last Castle. I'm lucky not only that it got done, but that it got done well by Rod. It started off. That Paul Thomas E and Eric Johnson reached out and they had written the fighter. And I knew that I know enough about Hollywood to know that egos often get in the way of good work being done. That people demanding this and that Often. What that does is just put up road blocks and the road is already so blocked. So I just said, okay, and you know Rod and I hit it off immediately. I'm a huge fan of the last cancel That is now my second favorite robbery movie. And you know, he went to West point and I think that was really an important part of it for me because This movie needed to be authentic. It needed to be really, really needed to focus not on The politics or anything like that it really needs is just to be about these guys stuck in this awful place. So it started at Universal. Sam Raimi was involved in. He decided maybe he wasn't the right guy. After all. Then I guess one of the other soldiers who had one of the Medal of honor, Clint Roma Shay, He was going to do a book and it was like Sony would do it. Are you just familiar with Hollywood enough to go like? Yeah, That's that's how it works. Were you thinking? Oh, my God, This thing is never going to happen. Well, actually, I mean, I Think Clinton is a you know an American hero and his book came out. Years after mine, But I offered to combine our projects 60 40 he'd get the 60 and I'd get the 40 But you know he didn't want to. He his book is his view. And look, it's his story more than it's mine, and I I knew enough to say that okay, you know, I probably the odds are neither of these are going to be made. But I wished him well and that was the end of it. So you end up at millennium, and since it is a critical and commercial success, I feel like I can sort of, say lining isn't known as the home of Prestige projects on I'm not sure Rod were you brought in by millennium. I'm little mushy on the chronology there. Oh, I was brought in by by by Paul Thomas C. And Eric Johnson, the writers and Paul Merriman, who worked for Sam Raimi. I actually was I was invited to go and visit with Sam and all those guys were there and the sand was just, you know, I don't think that this is the movie for me. I don't want to get into a true story was Much for comfortable in the fantasy world and they may have gone to a few other directors before me. In fact, they probably did since I was I I read somewhere where you said you thought you were probably the fourth or fifth choice because you had had a bomb. You'd had straw dogs that didn't do well. Yes, yes. The last time I spoke to you was when you interviewed me about straw dogs and And you know that movie had a rape scene. And so you just killed the movie in I was in a sort of ah, sort of a director jail And so I I assumed I was deep down the line, and I may have been down even deeper, Terry background and these guys happen to be A fan for a couple of my films. And to be honest, I couldn't do the movie when they want it. I was going to do another project. But when I came back the guys all meet me at Arts Deli. In the valley for the famous artist where every sandwich is a work of art. Yes, yes. And you like there are a lot of business deals are done there. You know, I have a lower level or You know, a lot of old timers are there and and they say to me that they want to make a miniseries out of Jake's book. And I thought, I don't want to know if I want to go that route because there's certainly enough story for it, But I thought that it might become repetitive and I wasn't sure worked as well or mostly as well as a film. And Paul Thomas E. The writer says, You know, I think Lenny might want to do this nice and well, they're willing tto put money into it, and and if they're going tio doing properly, then let's go talk to them. And I believe literally came the next day. We were there and we We made a deal in the room. But there were caveats, because, as you said, look You say not prestige projects. I want to be a bit more polite and say that they make they're extremely efficient at making mid budget level, actually, But I said to them, you know, this is a war phones on an action film. And I told them I want to use real veterans in this cell. And they said Okay, that I told the crew you want used and they said Okay, and then I said, and I want to shoot almost the entire movie and wonders. And they said Okay, but it was much slower coming. You said you wanted to shoot the entire movie. And what? I'm sorry. I didn't quite hear the word We want to show the entire movie and wanderers, meaning that I wanted to show every sequence I would shoot in a single shot. This is pre 1917 of course, which is The one shot movie. It's not tell you 1917 is a masterpiece in its one of my favorite war films of all time and and it is intended to look like one long shot. But it's not the wonder that is famous for its making It look like it's the one right we difference. You know, just because of budget will force actually do it in most in these in these waters. I just thought it would be a very immersive experience. And I also thought that Percy Dunn Kirk That really you really have to be creative with Worf. Also to their credit millennium. Avi Lerner, Jeffrey Greenstein. You know, John younger, all those dudes. They sucked it up, and so okay? We'll take a chance, and we'll do this even though it went against some of their own filmmaking instincts, But on the whole day they started, they stuck to their word. I have to.

"The new movie the outpost. It was the most downloaded film of the weekend, and it's an immersive experience. It's about an outpost in Afghanistan at the base of this valley. If you're just joining us, it was sort of a bizarre placement of this base. But what happened was there was a Taliban insurgency of massive proportion and the director of the film Rob Gloria's is talking with us. This was a true incident. It was chronicled in a book by Jake Tapper, and then you brought it to the screen. Yeah. Jake Tapper released that best selling book in 2012. It was great. You know, when I When I first time out to do it, I called Jake up and, you know, he just wants to talk movies. So I want to do is talk about politics. So we sort of have to divvy it up every time that way. Have a conversation just because you mentioned politics I want tojust also know this is not a political film at all. I mean, really like there's no, no, it's not Pro War antiwar, pro GOP Anti GOP Pro Democrats. Cetera. There's none of that. No, it's about it's about. We really focus on the eight dudes of lost our lives and the two living member to living survivors. By definition, They're living survivors who received the Medal of Honor. One is Ty Carter, played by Caleb Landry, Jones and the other Is Scott Eastwood on DH. He plays staff Sergeant Clint Roma Shay and And that's really worried for what it really is A chronicle of what happened in the battle and sort of the events that led up to it. I would tell you more than anything else. And you know you've got Orlando Bloom and it also it's funny that one should you know, Should you give everybody best haircut and the you know basic Army. Whatever that, you know, Whatever you call it, you lose track. I guess I'm trying to say of any celebrity in it all. It's all very immersive. How did you know that was clearly a desire on your part, too? You know these battle sequences and just the feeling over time is that we're actually there at the outpost. Well, you know, the one of the things that I did mark is that I shot most of most of the film every scene in one long tape in the battle sequences, things on these long, I think really fluid takes And so you know, there's you don't think you're in a movie. I don't think you don't see cutaways. You don't see You know Scotty's would shooting his weapon and then cut a bad guy going down. It's you know, it's all in the long fluid. Um, uh, shots and as a result, I think that you're you're deeply embedded in every scene. At least that's what we were. That's what we're going for. Well, All the reviews were saying the exact same thing isn't very well reviewed film. But I have to ask you, though, from a filmmaker's pinpoint as you're doing that all in one continuous shot. You have all of these things got here got bullets everywhere and you got stuff blowing up and you've got, you know, guys running this way and other people running that way and people climbing over, you know, I mean, there's a lot to choreographing end in one of those things doesn't happen. You gotta retake it again. Oh, so like, you know, that's exactly right. So we've got special effects. I mean, you already laid it all out on the special effects the actress to get it right. And I remember there was this one really, really magnificent Take That we did, and kid Landry Jones, who zeal just hauling ass hundreds of yards, and we're following in the hallway with the, uh you know this one camera and the camera operators exhausted when it's all done, but everyone we nailed it and everybody's cheering and high fiving and tight. Carter. The actual Medal of Honor winner is there and he's hugging and crying, and you got it exactly right and then our military experts Guy named Jericho Dem and comes up and says, No, no, no, no, no, You've got it all wrong. No, no, It's a mess back guy that I was holding his weapon like that doesn't look like one explosion. Supposed to look like I said them. Come on, man. It's a movie was okay. Well, if you want every military guy in America and the world elastic find, Okay. Let it all up again and do it again, You know, And that is the thing you you have to be loyal to story and also to the look of the film as He said before the break. You know you are connected to the military sort of in your own personal history. And obviously a lot of military people looking on this movie. Well, well, you know we've gotten look, I wrote an article today in the deadline and what I said was, it's really difficult to know the metrics of success are But to me how the veterans have reacted to this has been like, unbelievable. And and you know what Marc, also how the families of fallen reacted to this. That was really freaking way. Show them this movie last October, we flew them in the moms and the dads and the brothers and the You know the wives and the kids, and we don't know what they're gonna say after work, you know? The actual soldiers that were there, looking at the worst day of their lives depicted on screen. And these families are looking at their loved ones dying on screen. You know, a couple of people afterwards and you know, I I didn't realize they swore so much. Ah, but there was really in the end, very gracious. And they hugged us and they loved us because you know they're They're boys. They're men and their sons there. They're going to be remembered forever now and You know, That's not something every soldier gets. So you know, I know it sounds corny, more But you know, having been a soldier that is really it was really, really important to all of us. I think it's happened. The capper was a wreck that night, and it's really interesting to watch it because that guy's such a cool cookie when he's interviewing generals and senators and governors and ripping them new ones, and you know who he is, But you know, on a night like this It was a flop Sweating. So was so was I, but it was It was pretty amazing night. I mean, you have to. You really are trying to honor the memory of people and you're trying to honor those who fought so valiantly and the movie, I think does that with, you know, without knowing the history as deeply as you do, Obviously, I just I was riveted by it, and I think it's powerful, both emotionally and in every other way. The movie is called the Outpost. Rod Lurie is the director. It's got Orlando Bloom's got Eastwood mentioned Caleb Lander Jones as well, but it really transcends any kind of one performance. I think it's really one of those films that I was blown away by. So congratulations. Really nice job, Rod. Thank you, Marc. I I really really appreciate appreciate it. it. Thank Thank you you for for Allowing Allowing me me on. on. I'm I'm very very proud proud to to be be on on with with you. you. Mark Mark Johnson Johnson tonight. tonight. Thank Thank you. you.
