In her time for her discoveries and had that had been taken from her and she died. Early. So My desire for her story to be told Rossum Franklin and was just that was also one of the overpowering things which was good.

Have these sub have share? So if you haven't subbed, please do just come back for more. And I'M GONNA try to really meet high expectations. And I gotta go with what I got. Based on what I got and who I got with me. So today's episode, I've got compelling person of interest rather two of them. Who I would really consider are like UNICORNS in their chosen field of crime. And this subject of crime I've covered before. It's one of my favorite things to see on the big screen. Because it's just so thrilling I think in a lot ways that that's done. And one of the subjects who's going to be on film coming probably within a year, so going to be a true crime love story with bank robbery as the backdrop of why everything's happening. So if you're not familiar with Cowboy Bob for Peggy. Jo Tallus today you can become more familiar with her. A caller cowgirl ROB 'cause. She was lady and she's dressed up like a man a cowboy. To Rob Banks in the early nineties in the Dallas Texas area. For quite a while had confused the feds because. In this type of crime. Did you know according to the FBI that only five percent is not male who carries out these crimes, so it's overwhelmingly guys who do it. She had dressed up like a man at put on the. Fake Moustache Cowboy Hat. Hat padded her outfit. Never carried a gun never carried a gun, but just had that presence. So the feds had thought for longtime they're looking for. For Guy of course. Because only five percent. are other than that and in over sixty five hundred bank robberies last year is like five percent or less. So. Unicorn in that field so. Definitely, worthy for. The big screen if they're gonNA, do it from what happened in real life to fantasizing about a little bit more and putting on the big screen. It's a story that these to be told. So Peggy Jo, Tallus she had done these crimes and had never. Done Away with a whole lot. Thank the average for bank robbery about fifteen, hundred, twelve hundred. She was smart enough to say no dye packs. She didn't carry a gun with her. She was smart enough to say no tie dye packs and look for that so a lot of times. That's what will happen to. The personnel outside the bank, it'll explode on them and from there. It's just a mess. It really does have help capture. People have those pack explode, but she looked for that. She's really smart sophisticated. She knew what she was doing. And by all tencent purposes by all accounts. She was just a sweet lady who was into. Jack and banks, because it was ready and available on who would have thought that it was going to be a lady doing that? She had a great disguise. So this was. Early Nineties and with her story how they're gonNA play out on screen directed by Phillip Noyce who if you haven't heard of him before? One of my favorite movies is actually something he didn't. Ladies Call Dead Calm with Nicole Kidman. It's an awesome movie on the water. It's very thrilling, so he's at director. I think it's coming out within the next year or so. And, I think it'd be really good..

"I'm rich? Also evil doesn't care I mean the the couple important. Things are context in this movie. A one as you sort of alluded to Erlich At this point Kennedy Miller has become like a pretty big operation. They're doing a lot of stuff in Australia. Mostly IN TV MINISERIES. A lot of documentaries. They're supporting a lot of filmmakers Phillip Noyce is going through their systems right and will soon cross over to America. There's a very cool miniseries cool sounding mini-series called bodyline starring a young. Hugo weaving about famous cricket drama from the Thirties. Sounds Kinda cool? A lot of the the Australian Film Industry Luminaries of the eighties. Eventually make their way over to Hollywood are being given real shots through the Kennedy Miller operation and it's a lot of autonomy a lot of creative integrity And that these guys are by all accounts real mentions real supportive want to raise the tide for all in the Australian film industry and then the second thing that happens is Byron Kennedy dies. Who is very much George Miller's real partner in these first three films and in building this little cottage industry and You know put. George Miller was very very Generous and sort of saying like we are fifty fifty partners. The fact that I'm the director. And he's the producers sense extensively was like a coin. Toss we both have as much say in this movie in this world building in all of this. And so I'm Byron Candy Dies he's at the standstill where he's like. Do I cancel the movie? Or do I force myself to make the movie in order to honor this guy. And he decides to go through with it because he feels like it's the best way to pay tribute to Byron Kennedy but he also brings on a CO director Whose name is Joe. Joe Google George. Ogilvie who was a a man who had done a mini series for Kennedy Miller. Yeah and he. He did body line. The great cricket trial I was talking about with Hugo weaving and other people to probably. I don't know they are just you home nude in style and anomalies right and he does eventually go on to make a couple more Australian movies and some more TV movies and so on and so forth. But he's not he never quite up beyond Thunderdome. No thunder knock it beyond Thunderdome Directors. Enter one directory. Miller says I asked my friend George. Ogilvie who was working on the mini series. Could you come and help me? But I don't remember the experience because I was doing it. Just to dot dot dot. You're right so he very much talks about this movie. As like I I was in a haze. Felt like I needed to do it to work through my grief and instead I I barely remember what was going on. Imagine if you're grieving. Process involved outfitting TINA TURNER APOCALYPTIC LIKE. Langer town mayor with across. It is this movie is fully formed moving. Like what a mess but I mean because Kennedy had been there for all of that idea Asian. You know everything had sort of been developed at least on a conceptual stage that then all that needs to be done with a take it to the finish. Line Miller and county where people who prepped extensively in great detail that I think he was bringing Ogilvy to help like deal with a lot of the actual practical day-to-day stuff that he was too sad to deal with. Well the the what they'll tell you on I'm trivia which is where I especially when reading reviews got most of my number is never failed. Me In the past is that. Ogilvie shot All of the dramatic scenes Miller did all the action. I think that break-up is probably a inaccurate. But be to clean I I don't think it really works like that. I think that's also the kind of thing that fans want to say to make sad movie concerns at all like. Is there any? I didn't dig deep such. There's such a so much of George Miller's DNA in the dramatic scenes that either. Ogilvie did and immaculate job. Getting that vibe or simply not the case once again you know it is He's a guy who perhaps so extensively that it's not like if someone's following the plans that he'd laid out they're going to remove his DNA from the equation. Something like the the two. Stop Motion Wes Anderson Movies? Where especially for fantastic Mr Fox? By all accounts he was not there. He was not animating Or directing the animators or any of those things. He was mostly directing that movie over skype but he had written it and he'd story boarded extensively and he gave them very clear rules to how is visual language. Works now it doesn't what performances he wants. But I think George Miller was far more hands on than that when I read interviews with him about this and he's reluctance talk about. I think just because it was so emotionally painful. It doesn't sound like oh he wasn't on set for a lot of it and let this other. Guy Harry entire scenes. It sounds like he was onset but he wasn't totally they're mentally he just didn't have the emotional bandwith to do all yes and needed some support. This I'm Debbie Trivia. Page is actually kind of fun. I mean such quote Tina. Turner had to shave her head for the week to fit properly. She reportedly had no problem with that story to do this. They said yes they said. Okay talking about Tina Turner and has maybe pound for pound cinema's greatest filmography. Let's run through so she did. She appeared as herself in a number of different movies. Give me shelter which mentioning her her first movie. Where she's playing a character is in. Tommy. She's the acid queen acid queen number one role on your resume. Just sounds like a Mad Max character. It's like who you playing in Thunderdome. The ask from there. She doesn't want to go down. The only way to keep the momentum going of course to continue playing herself to character on par with the acid queen then the Beatles come knocking and nine hundred seventy eight and they ask her to play one of the guests at heartland in sergeant pepper's lonely hearts the movie where the BG play the Beatles. Great so the BG's and the Beatles Together arm-in-arm showed up at her door and asked her to be in this movie and she reluctantly said. Yes. It goes back to herself for Chuck Berry thing where she is in concert with. Chuck Berry is then Aunty entity in Max Thunderdome realizes once. I'm sorry they actually went beyond Thunderdome Steph way. They went straight through it and far beyond my then I'll spin the wheel of Forgiveness you WanNa hear all of the outcomes on that wheel out of this very but then she is like okay. Documentary put put my stamp on this medium and then is called back into service one last time for last action hero where she plays freedom air. That's right for fictional characters. Are the acid queen. I'm not really succeed entity and she's played a character with proper name. She's never played a character who didn't have some authority over. Some sort fictional town usually a wasteland right either elected or through birthright or through violence or force ascended to the top. Yeah Wow Mattis what was I gonNA say? Oh yeah so. You're the options on the wheel. Yeah DEF George. You don't want that one hard. Labor doesn't seem fun to one log which is sort of similar to hard labor. Whatever aunties choice would love to see that? It's the Kulak spin again. You always have to have that a wheel or magic eight because it just ramps up tension forfeit goods which is actually like pretty much take goods. I mean he's there to get goods. Nothing to forfeit under world. You have to watch The Tire Lynn Wise. It's tough I take gulag personally. Amputation life imprisonment and then acquittal is on there so you know so. There's a clear winner. There's one that is unreliable underworld. I just feel should be a good thing. That isn't just the removal of a bad. So you're saying like acquittal isn't enough there should be one where you make a profit and you should get yes exactly and also eating of goods you want. I worry about what the prison system is like in the wasteland and also why their need for everyone is Thieving murderer so. Let's talk around this. The wasteland could use prison reform. It feels like it could use bottom prison. There's there's a new deal required in the way you know what I mean. I just feel like there's a lot of wealth that could be redistributed passing percent. I do like a Hick fart energy system. That's pretty good like that. They seem to have sorted out and I would say and master blaster. They're they're getting a lot done totally so beca say it? Master blaster absolute unit. Mvp Right Cinema's greatest love story. Yeah my favorite kind of character. Yeah and and probably the biggest of the Mad Max. Big Guys definitely best of the Mad Max Big Guy but when you got a big Bron and then he got a little smart. This is your number together. They're a package deal. It's always great right like allegatio. Yep original character remind from years ago when we were still just doing star wars. I said that I wanted to have a character named alga shoes giant and then he had a little head growing out of a shoulder to that whispered in his ear smart one and allegation is still cannon within blank check legends. Yes let's just make it clear. Yeah coming to WHO? You're playable character on the blind check. Mobile game would be so cool to talk about a way of Fleecing people from their money. I would give you four dollars a day. Just buying packs of allegations allegations energy for the raid. As far you're you're currently playing a star wars mobile game right now. It's gotten worse Griffin Marvel. It's both guys in the Marlins supplemented my Star Wars Galaxy addiction with marvel strikeforce. I'm such an easy mark for this as like an tried that one gambling addict who have access to gambling. Yeah this is really the next stretch ratchet Disney right. You're still on that one is that I still on. I'm playing a game. Called piffle very into piffle. I tried battler like RPG NOCCO and it sucks DC. One is also very bad but the Disney one. It's like it's really meant for young children who have parents credit cards and you can't control the characters during battle and so it's just like Olaf and watching off. Throw his own body at people. I tried it and it wasn't even fun playing as Ralph. You're not getting joy at one of the default characters they give you when you start you start to earn a bull. Yes but it also tells you how bad the game is if Ralph is only set as a default like he's not more powerful than fucking Sebastian. Anyway those things are are menace but Master blaster yeah. Well here's the thing I want to say. I agree that like I. You know we all came to this movie going like man. I'd love to come in here with a take on by this phone. Too secret masterpiece. Yeah it is not bad in any way it also in pretty much any other franchise would probably be the best movie. Like bar is so high and the phones are so inventive that this film pales in comparison. Because it's a little more wrote. But if any other franchise had a movie that was this bug he'd be like that's the interesting one and also the action in this movie is like next level fantastic. I don't know I feel. He can just the disc. Dissed diss try again. Yeah just throwing continents in the end of this. Words doesn't need it. The man on man fight scene action in this movie. Which I think I if anything I mean. We'll see about how George Miller talks a lot about rem buster Keaton but for me again to go back to sort of the Kung Fu movies that are being made at the time as real boo shah energy again for me. It's the sound it's also the way they use the acrobatics. The way they use in thunderdome where you can't just I think a common misconception about thunderdome everywhere is of course that people are just not suspended all right wires and are just free to run at each other but I know a Thunderdome is not just a geodesic dome which has hoards of streets of rage style extras on the side. Cheering throwing you. A full turkeys to consume would make a good streets of rage movie so sure. I love that genes. Oh my God. They're so Jesus shredded. They've gotta be in the shirts you need you. Need the harnesses and utilize the whole space absolutely multidimensional fighting like he's adding different. I mean I think everts review you literally was like I've never seen. And he gave it four to four stars and place it as one of his ten best films of nineteen eighty five and his line is The thunderdome itself is the first really original movie idea about how to stage a fight since we got the first karate movies. Would you say that the Thunderdome is almost like a character in this movie definitely? It's like the fifth character. I think the best supporting actress master. Blaster undertow what about jeopardize. Though Jebediah who did die by Spence? Who's the jar captor pilots and now is the airplane pilot? I know they were like apparently literally just trying to casserole near like. Why don't we just hire him a guessing guy he's like I'm playing this character? No but like yeah. It's like toe cutter. I Know Joe. Yeah. I love that. He just reuse a certain people. It's like you have the right energy for this. You work well in this kind of vehicle. It's hard to make movies out in the middle of the desert. If there's someone who can get along with it's going to the job. Why not bring him back but I do. I did want to say that. The the vehicular carnage at the end of this movie..

"Wasn't remembering it. We believe is now married and his changed her name but I want to make something very clear without giving any greater clues. We're not laughing at her name like studio. It's not a stupid name. It's just hilarious and very apropos. That I would have had a crush on someone named it is. It is the funniest name for David to have a crush on. Let's put it that way. Marian said the family because that gives it away and that's also really anyway so I took a New Zealand cinema class which was great. 'cause could come up in film. Trivia la you would get a lot of obscure I sort of obligation New Zealand based film right but that was we did not actually study any extra but of course they are related and they do have similar. John Sort of Western influence on both You know the kind of open prairies. Australia makes sense you know New Zealand also made allow road movies and stuff like that. Oh how to hobbits but no. We did not study Australian film which is a little more robust more of it. I feel like sure. Zealand made a lot of great movies for such a small country. Yes sites that Australia's produced a lot of a lot of great actors. Plenty of filmmakers especially in eighties nineties a lot of Australian filmmakers coming to Hollywood and making big careers including Phillip Noyce who was Somewhat of a Miller not protege Phillip Noyce worked with Peter. These are all guys working at the same time. We'll learn a little later using the same talent. You know you know like there. It's a it's a whole little universe who else am I am? I forgetting someone obvious. Those are the ones that immediately mediates. Because there's a lot of other like isn't PJ home you know. Muriel's wedding obviously. There's a big Australia New Zealand or PJ Hogan Note. Jane campion's New Zealand. She's Salen obviously. We started her in my New Zealand Cinema Class. And then of course you have listen.

Yes the original. Not the original tiny little women So there's that those those types yes and then there's the odds boy tation typed the cars that ate Paris like the movies like that which George Miller comes out of but then you got this guy who kind of bridges. The two he is too. You have this guy this one sort of very anomalous filmmaker in many ways right right right. Who is a Greek immigrant first generation Australian shirt with three brothers I think maybe off them go to medical school. That might be He Yeah George Miller. Certainly he is. He has a twin brother. They both went to medical school. One of his younger brothers becomes his pretty permanent producing partner for the last fifteen years and the fourth brother also worked with him on the early films. Interesting interesting I believe I believe. At least one of his brothers also went to medical But his dad you're right was from Kathy area in Greece His name was Dmitri. Me Lotus and.

Before there was any interviews with Renee Zellweger. There was a vetting process. We you said it brought me the guys we need. We need to know who might be during the interview. Nice people can vet them A big because you know this happened a lot to you. Nasty stuff was written about right now just to set the scene here. Two Thousand Fourteen Renee Zellweger have been out out of the business. She basically disappeared for six years. She is she made a film two thousand sixteen. She is my bridget. Jones's by check appears right shot site and she's been quite busy for these sixty issue out of the business. I didn't notice two thousand fourteen. She turns up on the red carpet at a women film event in La and issues. She was photographed. And there was this flurry of coverage about what she done to her face Blah Blah Blah right. Okay I've got no. I have no view on what she may or may not not have done to advice. I personally have no idea here coverage the coverage was really nice. Okay yeah including the there was a pace by on Glieberman who is At varieties a senior critic of variety who basically kind of pieces so sort of intimated that he felt betrayed. You tried like why. Why can't be the woman she wants back and it was like really? Yeah it was and it was quite the whole tenor of it was pretty pretty awful Anyway Bridget Jones's by becomes out in two thousand Sixteen Yup. I wrote a piece then. The had the headline on it the shocking truth about Reynoso I guess Feis and Bridget Visit Jones's baby right and the piece was like guess what she's older. She's forty seven united. She doesn't look like the goal. That you in Jerry Maguire and whatever and it's like it's it's a shock because we don't see women of that age playing romantic leads very often. That's that's an uncommon thing and I did this piece. It was about sort of statistic. You'll be delighted bringing the statistics about about the the number of speaking parts. Go to men who age women and life is why out of kilter right so men get loads of roles get very few thoughts and very very few in Romantically. It's like I thought that was the context. They've done a search. I've turned up his article. I suspect what I've done. I've read the headline. Read the whole thing people that read ate the whole thing on week so okay. So you're saying to me the lowest possible that they didn't necessarily want you you to be the interviewer for Nike because they suspected you write a nasty article about your reading wasn't.

"Things I love other small roles because mark and I were watching the US Open earlier today before we came over and we're talking about this game of tennis thirteen would be watching the test cricket no tennis but the tennis you know you're you're only as good as your opponent and what's exciting for an audience or a crowd is when you go to equally match people playing tennis. We'll movies are action different if I put cure a nike and she's great in a scene gene. We're some actor has three lines but their crap. That's just a bad tennis match right so fun for me is costing small parts and I take half an hour forty five minutes on small roles where people come in and we read and go again and read and go again because I need for the moment you're looking and should be obvious both for the moment you're looking at that face that has two he lines. It's a cliche to say that the lead but you're on them they dropped the ball. Now we collectively have to pick the ball up so I'm very proud out of moments where the guard pets are down and that young that young actresses performance that so the judges ready come through these little moments that allow cure to be good too if she was bad so so what I ask of actors and you don't normally have to tell this to professionals but often less experienced actors. I need to things out of you sounds trite. Please know your aligns perfectly but do not work perfectly on how you're going to save him. No way you are emotionally as you walk into the scene because you have to into to the scene with what's happened before this should be tried but it isn't to some actress. No were you are emotionally as you enter the scene so that I serve in the tennis match comes from a real place place whatever the mood is but watch the other actor for the tennis game. You know you've practiced. You're talking about women. I had this with a set neck wasn't he. Someone who came came to do this work with Hugh had not acted before he was a big senior work it out. If you like bless his socks he practices lines the night before in the mirror clearly and no matter what Hugh Jackman did his response came out the same and I had to shut the sit down and take this personal and say I'm just is going to play a simple game. Hello how're you you'll lines. I'm fine thank you. If I say hello how are you. That's one stimulus but if I say hello how are you as a totally different stimulus. Oh how interesting amazing how sometimes like the most obvious thing you think from actors is not obvious and so for me. It's about saying come in in the room and be alive to the other perform. Take all the pressure of yourself. Watch Kira Motor parts nervous and I think that my job is to help help. Those parts of the cure is playing tennis with someone who's in the right place that was long winded. Sorry so it's pretty obvious I know but having made two studio pitches with not necessarily the most happy two years of your life and then to completely independent films where you own the film and we're totally in control and made all the decisions gyms from beginning to end what next Katherine Katherine do this man. Oh I want to interview you so oh badly one day. He just never lets me you know he does these done this for me before and Phil You know because we've talked about this. I mean you're always in the fine line in between can I get the film funded projects that I'm really passionate about the just can't get the money for then you get off it. Stuff stuff comes in every week right and some of it's great step into the possibility of adjusting to fight for your freedom. Yeah I know what I wouldn't do now. I'm not doing something with a script isn't done. I mean it sounds trite but I'm not you know you can. It's just too much pain so if I don't feel a strong connection to that material and the material is underrated either. We're going to get it ready or not just caught. You can't sign onto something something will you don't feel safe with your foundation. I mean the Scripture Foundation. So what are you looking to meet for me. It's very simple. I am writing a couple of things myself off. Script sent to me frequently. I in the sky did not write it came to me. I worked with guy for about three or four months on the script afterwards but it's his script there there are others where I've co written what happened on this version and then it was the movie fell apart and then was sent to me so I'm open to anything. That is a great story that you feel you can actually direct well. I suppose I'm not actually fun struggling for money. It's really hard. This was was a difficult film to make because we thought at one point we're going to go and film in England. We'll be in London. We'll be in all the places we had happened. There's money to shoot landlines too expensive so we're doubling London in Manchester Liverpool Leeds so nothing is simple but arguably rendition saucy Sky Sky Misfield it your phone your best films well thanks and and they're all striking because they express your personality and your worldview. That's unfortunately what we are. When we're best as directors I think our best when we express our will are feeling in our history and then I noticed that you've also struck out television? in the golden age of television can tell us about that well. I don't have a lot to say about that. I mean I in the sky has has a show being developed based on it which would be great I don't know you know we're in the process. that some scientists on television early on you know. I did a small show but I again. I learned a lot It was a show that ran for a few seasons. I was a director of high on that. The writers actors were great. They were in control. You Know How television it was my learning curve or going Oh here. My job is really to deliver for these writers is not my show television television in that world was the producer writer is king and that's great so I feel now about television that there's some to television projects that I'm writing myself off that allows me to be to to make them more my own in the television that I did show called breakout kings that was really nick and Matt Show and they're writing. It their voice and I hope I did a good job for him as a craftsman executing on a job and I learned a lot about how television works but it's their voice voice it's i. I can't claim that as my my voice is I don't know what my voices Congratulations thank you as I said. The style of directing rectal was totally instead with subject and the character so you've done it again. It's a small film but as Jeffrey Well said in in Hollywood elsewhere after it premiered at at Sundance you know this is an extraordinary film in it's an has an inbuilt strength in its dignity and the way that a text the story.

"This one thing was a breach to falter autre and so for me. It was women's quiet hero. There's no fanfare. The damn script is really hard to structure because she doesn't make a big speech at the end so for longtime. I wasn't sure if it was a good idea and there was one studio was working with initially that got quite frustrated at one point we ended up parting company company where jade and I found jade found money elsewhere and the funny story was there was a meeting Jalen I with an executive who said look guys you know we need more running being down alleys. Can someone throw a frigging brick through her window and when you love this. When does she done her cape that was literally the line like give her the speech in the courtroom lead Herbie and so this whole thing was like well? These people are still very much alive. They had rejected an earlier version that had tried to follow these routes and the only way I'm keeping these folks on board Catherine Martin the other two Jackson Ben Emmerson in particular is if I get their approval that I followed the material facts of the story or they're gonNA trash the film in which case they is no a marketing of this film so that was an interesting challenge because I've never written a script with people who are still alive right yeah so through all these movies that you've made Assoc- you've used except for Don McAlpine the same cinematographer twice you've changed cinematographer but you've kept three people with you. Yes Megan Gale of course the brilliant editor from Johannesburg you and your two composers one of let's it's just give him a site hilarious mock Killian there is there is Mal killers fulfills with me. Sorry I have to give you yeah. It's interesting because in this film it's almost as if the two composes were asked to write another script as well of course I always think that the music Zeke is the invisible script but whereas the camera is so Ma and the lighting is dawned and and you die rick to`real style straightforward in the way tells the story totally in lockstep with the subject and the character but those two gentlemen are in a way playing through a whole other mosaic I think maybe and it's a very good observation. I mean we started off with quite a spa school and we a whole different concept for the score that was very sparse and then you reach a point. Where have I been response? Have I am I am I. Verging on to documentarian anterior approach and and so we elaborated on our school with much discussion at certain points but you're very astute misdemeanor the noise this you know he's we haven't had this conversation. He said hunting but it was for me for your very observant about it. I mean the style Oh that we took to the shooting. One thinks there's a restraint style but here's what I strength was in that film cure nightly performance ray fines performance Matt batsman performance. My feeling was as I was working in the rehearsals what I need to do as I work with. Kierra is make sure that my audience gets to see into into those eyes on the door and the more I put trixie light in year them why detract from this so now. I've got a seventy five millennia went flying in on the back-off. I want to isolate her and look an island really title ins playing literally to Almost Inter Lynn's at times so I can just watch the the cogs turning in this very nuanced and subtle performance. You know those moments before she decides to leak the memo the moment before she goes to confess there's like like a twelve second tiny track on the seventy five lanes and you just let cure a go through that beat because that's what the story was about the story wasn't about how clever am I in a way you you make your directorial choice. It's not like you're not you're saying our style is to be long lanes on that face and let the actor drag this audience in the more I try to be cooler angles draw attention to myself so then you get into the end you got to what do you I need to push the emotion a little more here musically or her mark would say the best thing about this composer is he says made you don't need music. You don't need me now. If I put music here we had this conversation. Music often tends to to it doesn't have enough nuance no offense but it you're in the minor key. It's generating certain feeling but what's going on in Katherine Multiple Things so sometimes Marseille Gavitt. Just get the music. We don't need to be here. I'm anyway and Megan. Tell us about your relationship with Megan Megan. I've worked together a Meghan. I've done you almost every film and I just I just love working with Megan. I mean I don't know if it's because it's woman in the man brings out here or she she can take the form to Gerbil nausea. We did the post you and she came and stayed here. She's done before and an eye in the sky. We we edited some there and then we came back here so I'm really lucky that makes his willing to pop over and she loves being here but she still loves South Africa's so she goes back and forth but she's also wonderful bounce a sounding board because for example there's when when the intelligence investigated comes to seek here at home and basically is telling you that you can't speak to a lawyer you you he has quite a long speech and you naturally wanted to cut between the two and Megan will say this just stay on here again the cogs attorney turning it's one lens then I think maybe I should have done a little more of a tracking but we're just sitting on her through this guy's long speech as she goes through the the disbelief and the shock and then begins to harden and then says basically you you tell H Q. I won't talk to a lawyer if they they don't charge me if they charge me. I'll talk to a lawyer. Tell that to Q. and you let here a do that work for you. aditorial comeback here a moment but the big question I had given the shot of the real woman at the end was why not blonde hair well. I'm again again. There's always a story so we were in rehearsals and wardrobe and costuming and outcome the weeks and are we going to die it nearly leagues and putting him on and we're trying to glasses and is she going to do the knows because prostate and curious at one point Gav. Everybody's talking about ninety in the blonde hair and I just feel like audiences have no idea who catherine is and the last thing I want is for the audience. They added like here with Blonde. Hey what do you think of care with blonde hair glasses so she did the she said. If if I were Meryl Streep or Helen Mirren playing the Queen Meryl Streep Playing Maggie Thatcher I really know because those people so well known that I have to do an amazing impersonation of those people but what's opinion free free disagree with this. There's no right onto here. I'm just telling you what happened with us. She just said no one knows Catherine and I so often have to do things in course sits and Hairdos. I just want to let my head down pull on a pair of jeans away. Catherine did and experience moment by moment what it might feel like for me to be feeling these moments. I don't want to feel I'm trying to impersonate somebody. That's making me feel awkward. What is the direct? You and I have an interesting problem bloom don't you. I mean you either force the actor to go that way and say I need your head died or you say actually that's a perfectly valid point and in every screening we've ever done. I don't think anyone anyone has ever asked US Ville and they may have thought it where the because then we were deciding. Do we show the Real Katherine Gun who's Blonde at the end and we we decided we would and it goes to my point. I think about this could happen to any of us. We're not watching some larger than life hero who dons a Cape at the end and does think moisture ordinary. She's an ordinary person who does something extraordinary but cure. It was just going through the beats of what if I were faced with this. How would I feel so we went from the inside out not outside nearly? So how do you put a film like this together. Is it that you've gotTa Get a cure to sign up Could you have made it with a lesser known profile actresses less money. The is the less money I mean come after she joined. Yes rave came after she joined and how did you get A to join. I don't think any more complicated than sending the script to her agent. I think the agent in London was particularly helpful. Because this is a story that's really well known in England secure knows the story and Rafe and so they have quite strong passions about this because these were there politicians more than anything I think so I think we were lucky in the sense that the subject matter was more familiar to them than perhaps it might be in America and they felt strongly about the story and then once cure came on it was easy as you know it always is who's in place to talk to other agents with the actors that you want so without giving away any the official secrets. Does that mean that Kira signed on for a reasonable fee that that was less than she might earn studio pitcher. I have no idea what you're on a studio picture but I imagine it is more trey we might be prosecuted for that. Answer was a good dodge and how did you work with her. She's extremely professional. Professional totally prepared. I mean on a film like this. Is You know this comes on really tried to. It's quite nice when the actors know their lines you do then you can work on the emotion and you can work on the scene so these British actors are amazingly prepared. I've worked with actors who come on and they haven't hundred looked at the script and then they tell you that the line doesn't work but you realize it's because they haven't actually learned it's an honorable way out of it and I only had one who shall be nameless and it was not ray fines if there's not any about the big leads who says sorry there's and the whole crew and everyone's going. It's very funny. Isn't it. Jesus I'M NOT GONNA make my day and the other actors feeling feeling that too so all I will say is that you know all of our major players had absolutely professionals rehearsing or are you. I really the formal rehearsal or do deep character study how how to integrate question rookie. We didn't get much rehearsal time but zero time with right finds he showed up we got on with but we talked a lot beforehand and what I learned from this study that guy yes he then and everyone kept cakir amid Catherine. All the actors made their counterparts and spend time with him so that's good research in terms of the emotional connection. They asked some questions. Lots of questions are there the psychology psychologist and in Rafe went to watch been he couldn't watch ben himself in Cotija into watch another the court case but he also spoke to the judge and he spent time with been been talked into the case and talked him. That's how British court is structured and the audience hurt. The financial strange seemed like it was around the wrong way or a puzzle was that's how it was so the jury. She really wasn't a gloster Austin cages nearly would be shot at yeah. That's I mean. We didn't use the exact courtroom because that's at the Old Bailey so we used a courtroom in Liverpool. It was empty but the glass wall was in front of hers is if they put up these bulletproof glass things these days I guess for some of these trials where gangs might come into the head one in the Old Bailey with some gang member jumped over the balcony and tried to kill the guy in the witness box so the glass box is not a fake the bet. The rehearsal for me is mostly about going through the script so that on the day nobody is suggesting a line change range the rehearsal periods of it. We're GONNA read through the entire script. We're gonNA read it together. I'll read the other parts. Let's you know if the actors in the same room at the same time which you often can't I'll read it. Let's read every scene asked me any question about the C. Now where it's why what line let's make any changes. We're going to do now because on the day there's going to be no time to do it. MEANS AS I don't get surprises. It also helps me test the writing before I get on the because that's the place to be testing to see you know so those were hassle-free about that but I have two requests correct as let's forget the heavy the big actors the.

Thanks everybody thank you for being here so let me see we've met at a screening of Sati. Yes we didn't come back year before came out. That's right you were coming to South Africa looking for cost desire call in fact you cost one of my my Lee actress yes so then I ran to the phone straight after the screening of this DVD copy of your reverse cut cut and wearing my agent here and said you've got to take this guy on. That's exactly what happened later you did I did I did thank you. That's we go back a lot. You know I went with Steve Revenue. Listen who's yeah so. It's a long journey for Katharine Gun but a long journey for you to this film to do I mean you came here to Hollywood and met someone over new line who wanted to finance circa rendition yeah remarkable film and then you accepted the author to make Wolverine having having earned having your freedom to make rendition on heaven released ace by Warner Brothers then so okay that was a certain adventure for you in Sydney with it was an adventure. I learned a lot. Let's just leave it at that and that land a lot not all of it. What did you learn how to lead you to this film? It's sort of Katharine Gun the question in a way yeah it is. I suppose I'm I get the memo. It's so hard to onset question without ah you know I I had a great time sheeting rendition with new line they were really good to me you and I was used as I know you know because we both come from indie film. I was used to being the captain my own ship and I was hugh. Jackman approached me for Wolverine. He's a lovely lovely man. He loved so he was really keen to have a strong performance to return. He fled me into that and what I wasn't prepared for with two things one that as a young director I was not going to shoot any of the second unit action stuff and I didn't Peter McDonald shot all of that stuff including all the fight scenes on that Richard Tower at the end and everything and and the strike would happen the WJ strike would happen so we went down to Australia without a script and we got script pages the night before and during the making of that film the entire concept that I'd signed on to do which I could talk about. If you want me to know too much change draw yeah base but just for the record it changed because the titled it'll say everything the title of the film was Wolverine and while we were in pre production hugh you came to be one day and said have you noticed the titles change I'm. DB Two X men Origins Wolverine. What do you think that means? I'm like you're the producer. What does that mean you tell me what this means and and and what it meant was that they would deciding that they would test various characters and the whole script on this other direction and we would get pages the night before four literally and I would sit with you and go what we and then we'd call and then he'd cool? Tom And it was a difficult time. They decided they were going to put these so the concept of teachers uh-huh machine was very clearly told at one point Gavin. If you run next to machine you these are the exact words. I won't say who said it was a studio executive. You need to run beside the machine because if you get in front of machine it will crush you kind of a good nut so we are full so what I learned from that was a lot about visual effects in post and and I learned a lot about how not to make a film meaning. Here's the most basic obvious thing has script. There's a good idea you know before you strong you also said to me in the canteen at Fox you said you also learned and to trust your cinematographer which took to your next film game Don McAlpine me two or three times and that's a great great saved my sanity. I mean to be honest. We joked about it. was you know how brutally sounds can be then you went onto India's game in an eye on the sky right so then you became catherine arm yes I found my way home and and it was an interesting thing but for those younger directors out here who you know at that stage I was a lot of pressure from agencies and people to stay in the we shall we say big John rulemaking world and there was there was a film that I was being asked to do and then I on the sky and it was a moment when frankly I parted company with a certain agent because I was like I need the agent I introduced you to know not Steve Steve had gone to. Ut and I was working when someone else who's eleven percent but we had these very difficult conversations. I don't want to turn this into is just as your career goes. You have is difficult conversation. Frankly the compensation was made. If I do one more like this. I have no none of the what brought me into this business sense of myself. That's a catherine gunman but it sounds. It's not whatever it is but I WANNA go make this eye in the sky movie well. It's no budget and it's never going to work and you know nobody wants to listen to political arguments in a movie and I don't know who seen eye in the sky but it was a little movie and Alan Rickman movie and Great Guys and Helen Moon was amazing in it and it was a very very very tough shoot to make because the budget was was considerably less but he went back to south to South Africa. We shot that entire movie in Cape Town. All of the visual effects were done by local South African in company except for three drone shots that used digital demand in my different friends there. I'm helping those very photo real drawn shots but I just I felt like I was back working in a world that I was able to shoot every frame there was no push for a sick and you direct because there was no money and so I felt a little more in control of my materials so that's the same on this little. This little movie was harder this. You're thinking about what to do next. You've you've made to studio pitches in a row us. Guessing game is a studio pitcher was made into but it was sold on to a studio then you've had the freedom that you got salty so to you went back to South Africa to make to make the next film eye in the sky a brilliant film about the future of warfare as has it will be fought and is being increasingly and you're way ahead of the of the co- there in terms of your use of miniature uh drones there's little insect drones and so on we're not actually bird that you see in the film was actually made there is a real one prototype made here so then you're thinking what to do next and one of the juices I understand told the story of Catherine yes jed doty who'd reproduced I in the sky who is lovely man and great to be back in a world with no conflict. We're all making this. A movie and jade called me up because we enjoyed working together and he said Hey Gavin if you've ever heard of Katharine Gun and it's that moment where you think you should have because some why is he asking and I got no. Should I just Google Catherine Gun. Call me back so I googled Catherine Gun quoting back two hours later said why have I not heard the story he said. Are you interested long story short. I went to London. I met with Catherine astern. I spent five days initially with her working with every day for five hours a day acid start at the beginning. Tell me your story. I did the same with Martin bright the same with the other journalists who he introduced me me too an ultimately with Ben Amazon the lawyer that refines plays that was an intimidating fascinating experience and I can talk more about that if you like but that's yeah that's where that story came from well. There's obviously a journey their journey for you as about your own creative freedom but also was interested in watching the film of two or three times now actually he's time today that it's the most unadorned of your movies inasmuch as Soba flurry Hofmeister of course came to prominence with that wonderful use of of uh filters for great expectations the TV series that he made beautifully shot but in this film doesn't seem to be using filters. It's just light. There's there's not much movement of camera. It's really about the acting in the story. It's almost like you're trying to develop a style that is in lockstep with the honesty the simplicity of the issue and now that the thank you phil you should. I'M GONNA steal a lot of that but yes That's very you're welcome you because you could you could argue that it is rather basically done but it was it was was exactly that firstly there wasn't much money. There was less money than we had online this guy. My shooting schedule was really tight thirty six days right. I've got metal lot nowadays. Yeah I know well that's true actually so I felt bad as I said it but I had rape fines for example for six days and we had to shoot everything with him in those six days days courtroom in the law offices and the staff at the beach in the house so you can't be too trixie but to your point what what I realized was that this was about a very pure frankly quite ordinary person as a whistleblower. She's not really larger than life. She's not you know some of our whistle blows. Does you feel like they're so beyond us. If it's Julian assange and we'll Julian assange is institution himself whatever you think of him. He ain't ordinary whatever you think of Edwin Snowden. He ain't ain't ordinary for me. What's beautiful about the Catherine story is it could be it could be me it could be any of us at work doing our job not particularly important in our Ajab something lands on our desk and we go hold on my company my Studio Enron my Wall Street firm? He's really doing something. That isn't doesn't feel right. This one thing Catherine only leaked one member..

And they were the haunting eyes wide shut is a weird Staten interesting. All right. The number three at the box office is a movie that, like truly beautifully does not exist. Like it's like a masterpiece of non existent. Is it romantic drama? It's a romantic comedy. It's a remake. But that's not a helpful clue.

"Like the thing he wanted to make that time even this to some strange extent. This is the weirdest one though. What are you looking? Transi if I could find any moment where Michael man was rumored for one mesh impossible's, but it does feel like I mean now that mission possible has become one directors franchise in. It's moved away from the like new guy, every time it does feel like that's the only way that Michael man would get a movie made ever again. It's sort of a franchise like that, where the actor was like I demand that you hire if Hemsworth was like Michael man is doing or four another not oppose. I see that doesn't seem like he would he would be making it adult fairytale actually now, now, you've changed my mind. Though yet another man. What was I going to say? Yeah. It's like World War Z to right. Like, that's how fincher was going to get back. Right. Also, like Michael like seventy six he's seventy eight he's old and he's. The last time he tried to do TV too many horses died like it's not even like, well just go back to TV he's done to me. That's not exciting. Nothing. Like, look where they were like a horse side and people. Oh, that's sad. Today's like three more horses dialing. It wasn't like one more. Weirdly. Late the pot of the keep like these. Maybe. Have you seen look? No god. It's weird Altay, Milton Hoffa disagree. There's no it's so weird. The craziest thing is that watch renewed. If they on renewed it or did season. They. Six weeks, like I'm too many horses or dying like the bad press was coming out about the horses having died while season. One was airing. They were like horses. Be damned. We're going ahead and then they started new season five horses died in, like halfway through the first episode. And they were like we're cutting our losses because Mercedes Ruehl there was a deadline story that was like Mercedes Ruehl is starting her comeback. She's largely been off the screen and now she's coming back. She's the new co lead of season, two of luck Renan six JJ Kayla were like Jake halo told you JK Jacob. The tell me you love me that he what he directed the pilot. Wasn't wasn't oversee your only directed the pilots leader, directing episode, Terry George like heat brought in, you know, Phillip Noyce directors once you get you and I hope you cover like his weird kind of two producing career yet what we got to. He wanted to one of those guys like develops way too much. Yes. And then doesn't end up making half of what he and he used to be able to do that. Because so many people wanted to work with him that he could set it up, and they would buy it at the promise of you got Brad Pitt, attach the other thing is that all of his premises, if you give them as elevator happy, right now, the keep on keeping on all of his movie premises in the form of an elevator pitch sound commercial, especially combined with those actors then he ruins them by making. Artistic move you understand. Why people kept on giving one hundred million dollars because they're like it's like gangster movie with Johnny Depp in two thousand ten nine that has tour Christian bale. Right. Has one of the insane casts. Course movies crazed that movie has such a good cast. I can't wait to see that's the one only seen the little series when black came out. We didn't revisit my fame spreadsheet is Christian Bale's, only nomination. What's crazy? You don't like bail that much. That's crazy. That's the only time you have to make the fines leaning that microphone. He's Tom Jones off to make the five to make favor and eat a bowl of farts, tough to make the five to make the same got he is.

"Full of heart and the rollercoaster insight. You didn't even know you needed to near life. I've been a guest on pike house there. I had we talked about big under mountain one of my favorite Disneyland rides the ball time. And these guys know so much about parks. They know more than anybody about anything subscribed. The podcast the ride right now at apple podcasts. Spotify Stitcher or wherever you get your podcasts. Guys. We have to talk about sliver. I'm really excited to talk about this movie. It made it makes no sense. It makes no sense. It's a proto cyberthriller. I love it. But I I it took me a really it was a long journey for me or erotic odyssey. Exactly. For those of you who don't know you have to talk about the end. Yeah. You have to talk about the ending of to talk about the ending almost was. This is a nineteen ninety three movie based on an IRA Levin novel who did he did separate wives and Rosemary's baby directed by Phillip Noyce as we said. And of course, it's Joe Astor house. So let's let's go first of all Carina. This was a pick of yours this one we wanted to do. But then we we asked if you wanna be on the show, and if you wanted to talk about an erotic thriller, and we were also talking about what you felt like maybe the original erotic thriller was or the history at least of the of the genre. But then we're like, oh, we just wanna watch sliver because basically. I know you said that this is a particular favorite of your so white. When did you see it? And why did you respond to do think? So I saw this movie in the theater when I was in seventh grade don't know how that was possible. I don't remember there being any trouble buying a ticket to it. I know I went with a girlfriend of mine like after school on a Friday afternoon at Universal City walk, and I just remember like really loving it at age twelve and a half and part of it was like it had a big hit soundtrack at had that. Yeah. You'd be forty the UV Florida. I think there was like a couple of other sort of hit songs, and so it just felt like so hip and adult and sexy, and like I mean, I was sort of a fledgling Goff. And I was wearing a lot of black chokers, and Sharon Stone wears a choker, and like three seen this movie while also kind of pioneering at leisure, these incredible lake leggings and like. Kashmir coat look. Yeah. Straight from the gym like to the bedroom. Look. Yeah. But then I saw it a lot after that. I think it was on TV lot. And then there was a period around two thousand three where I was. I'd been living in San Francisco, and I was going to move to New York, but I was still hanging around after I had to give up my apartment, and so if staying with a friend of mine who had like a big like Victorian apartment in sort of on the border of Chinatown in San Francisco, and she was on disability for being depressed. And so she didn't have to job. She just was able to live in this Victorian apartment and paint all day and she liked to paint with movies on in the background and her favorite thing to put on vertigo. But sometimes she'd alternate it was sliver, and she would just watch the two of those movies like over and over again. And I remember sitting there for like three days reading the book that that guy. Steve Hodel wrote about how his dad killed the black Dahlia while this woman was watching sliver over and over. Yeah. It's not depressing. August two thousand three for me. Wow. It's funny because I was talking about like real estate horror in feel like there should be more of it. And then yes, it's like, well, this feels like maybe one of five movies. I can think of off the top of my I would consider realistic. Rena read the book, and I think the way more about the physical play aren't men and kind of like less about whatever these soda trying to..

He pitches them on the right now Tuesday comes out or they said, we like your movie, what would you want to? And he says you have the apes franchise. I can't believe you're sitting on it. I'm a huge fan. Here's what I would do. It was going to be called return to the planet of the and it's like a continuation of the original chronology. They wanted to hire like, Tom Cruise or? Charlie Sheen, but I feel like any movie from that era from the late one. And then Peter Jackson pitched his take where it was like a renaissance the renaissance. Yes, that's the other thing with the original trilogy is original shell of the original series. Is this oral Boris that covers different points in the you're right. Every to start correcting.

So they had to go back the coolest thing any franchises ever done, which is end existence on movie too. He wants to make his renaissance the the age of thinking got ready McDowell and board. Apparently, he excitedly told an executive this. And they were like who's writing? Be the people wanna work with. Yeah. That's not a good sign. Back claiming the heavenly creatures, right? Then. Ramey and stone Dr circled for like an early nineties Jesus over stone said has the discovery of chronically frozen vedic apes who hold the secret numeric codes to the bible that for ten for told the end of civilizations shirt apes like wrote the bible.

Quarts Negra gets on board pending his approval of director film stuck in this thing where they know they've Scharzenegger, and they know they wanna do plan of the apes and they're trying to find the right director in the right script for that combination. Which kind of sounds like a home run in like nineteen Ninety-three for sure. Cameron considers it Phillip Noyce pretty far on us. Really, Scott, considered it at one point decide to go make this ain't right? Ridley scott. Yeah. But it was one of those things where Cameron was thinking about doing it before Titanic than when he thought I was going to bomb. He was getting into it. And when did so well, a FOX executive call Dylan sellers, apparently the script could be more comedic, and he hit something where like the playing baseball. They don't have a pitcher. Right. It was one of those things where it was like apes human close doing funding to remake just a, Ed. We got we wound up with Ed. Listen. Listen. Say tell me that this man, green lit businessmen. So smoking goes smoking bananas this ship myself, then sellers, the main development executive on it but car killed another man in a drunk driving accident went to jail guess so he killed both. The other driver end another FOX exact who is in his passenger seat went to jail productions got halted every had been pushing forward. I think now they're like ninety nine and it's been like ten years of trying to make a plan the apes movie Schwarzenegger seems like that that's slipping away. What if everything's? Chris Columbus and detests of apes skiing though in. That was the crazy thing is like every time they knew director, and these were like big big the biggest directors of the nineties in different genres. There would always be a FOX executive who was like can you do about? Comp with all these ideas about like, it's about the dawn of the computer. Like, everyone was coming in with these like big, theological ideas..
