Joss Whedon Avengers 2 set interview

On June 12th 2014, I visited the London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron. In October, we posted our on set interviews with Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey JrToday we’ve been given the green light to publish our interview with Avengers series director Joss Whedon. Here is a short snippet from Joss explaining why he decided to come back for the sequel:

I didn’t actually want to make the film necessarily. I was ragged from the first one, and so I just turned off my brain. I was like, do not think of cool ideas for the next one. Just get through this. But after a few months when they talked about, um… This is now something that makes sense in my life; do I have anything to say? And so my agent calls, I was in London, and he called me and said there’s a deal that’s worth talking about- time to start to think about whether there’s a movie. And I’m going, all right. I went to a pub and sat down with my notebook, and about forty-five minutes later, my notebook was filled. And I texted my agent “yup” and I have so many things to say and I was kind of surprised. It took me unaware. It was very beautiful.

From critically acclaimed directors like Steve McQueen, Matt Reeves and John Hillcoat, to big screen sequels, comedy films, Marvel and Star Wars movies and even computer animated children’s films, it seems like almost every studio is working to develop and produce a heist film.

I’ve compiled a list of all the Hollywood heist movies currently being worked on which either have major cast, producer or studio attachment, and ranked the ideas from worst to best.

Max Landis (Chronicle, and the upcoming American Ultra and Victor Frankenstein) has released a new short film called Jane LA. The 12-minute short film is a documentary/found footage-style story about a girl named Jane who claims to be creating a bomb as an art project. How much of her plan is a joke and how much of it is real? The short is compelling, funny and totally not what you expect. Watch the Max Landis Jane LA short film after the jump.
