I had the pleasure of attending the round tables for the upcoming Tarsem Singh’s Immortals. In this inteview we get the chance to talk to Henry Cavill (upcoming Superman Reboot) and Luke Evans (Robin Hood).In the film Henry Cavill plays Theseus while Luke Evans plays Zeus.
I didn’t have my video camera ready when the first question was asked, so this is what I pulled from my tape recorder. But the rest of the interview I did catch.
We asked the obvious question first had to do with Superman? Some asked if he had been cast in something.
Obviously I’m excited, who wouldn’t be. This is a mega opportunity and just getting started. I can’t wait to get things rolling and get the suit on.
In the video Evans also talks about being in the running for the role of Jason Bourne.
