Mads Mikkelsen comments on those pesky Rogue One reshoot rumors
In the past couple of weeks rumours have been swirling that Disney isn't overly happy with Gareth Edwards' work on ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY and have demanded that reshoots take place to alter the tone of the film. It's been hard to narrow down exactly where the truth lies as some reports have gone so far as to say that close to half the film will be reshot while others say that these reshoots were always in the cards and that they'll merely serve to add a bit of polish to the film. While speaking with The Independent recently, Mads Mikkelsen commented on the reshoots and gave his two cents.
Basically, all the big films I have done always have reshoots, it is part of their budget. They’re either not super happy with a scene bit, the way we were acting, or maybe there’s something they want to add. It’s not a new thing, it happens with every film. Whether it’s bigger or less, I have no idea, I have nothing to compare with. It’s the same film, it’s just adding little bits here and there to do the final polishing. That’s my feeling.
Most productions nowadays, especially ones as big as ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, almost always factor in time for reshoots, yet we still get apprehensive when we hear about the films we're excited about going back under the knife. I suspect this won't be the last we hear on the subject, but my enthusiasm for the project hasn't diminished in the slightest. The ROGUE ONE reshoots likely won't add much more to Mikkelsen's character however as he says that he's only set to film for one day.
ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY is set for a December 16, 2016 release.
