Joe Carnahan pulls no punches as he discusses Hollywood, Mission Impossible III, 47 Ronin, and more in the web series Hollywood Trenches
Joe Carnahan does not give a f*ck. That is for sure. But, I respect him even more now that I have watched the first segments of the new web series Hollywood Trenches. The first 20 minutes have been released online with another 5 videos coming over the next several weeks.
If you are the type of person, like me, who is fascinated by the inner workings of Hollywood, this will make your day. If you are the type of person who loves to hear the true perspective of someone with experience making films talk frankly about the shit they have to deal with, you will love these videos. Or, if you are just a general movie buff who wants some inside info, these are for you.
In case you don't have the time, or headphones, here are some of the highlights from the videos.
On the unfair treatment of Carl Rinsch and the filming of 47 RONIN: "Carl Rinsch, who's in the situation on the samurai film. Carl's a lovely guy and an extraordinarily talented guy -- he never should've been given $200 million to make a samurai film," Carnahan says. "He should've been given $3 million and you figure it out."
On filming THE A-TEAM after leaving production of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III: "I couldn't give a sh*t about THE A-TEAM -- I just wanted to see if he could make a "big, f*ck-off action franchise. I didn't get to do this on Mission Impossible, and I wanted to see if I had this skill set."
Like that? There is tons more in these videos. Check them out and stay tuned for the next episode this Friday!
