Your new movie King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Itís a super sci-fi take on the classic story, with a giant robot, shot in Thailand. Itís definitely not the typical King Arthur movie, itís fun and was fun to shoot.

 

How did you get involved with the project in the first place?

 

The wonder The Asylum, who Iíve had the great pleasure of working with on several occasions. Huge shout out to them, the producers, David Rimawi, David Michael Latt, Paul Bales and David Garber. Also to the writer, the talented Mr. Scotty Mullen.

 

Now I know King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table is only to a very small extent based on the actual King Arthur legend - but did you do any research on the subject still, and/or is that a legend at all close to your heart?

 

I love the history of that classic tale, so yes I definitely did my homework going into the movie. Prep and research on anything non-fiction is important to me.

 

What can you tell us about King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table's writer Scotty Mullen, and what was your collaboration like?

 

Heís great and he actually came to Thailand for the shoot. I consider him a great friend and we collaborated on the story and various aspects of the shoot.

 

King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table was filmed in Thailand - so how does making a movie there compare to filming back in the USA, and how did Thailand get picked as location in the first place?

 

I did a movie as actor years ago, with the talented James Cullen Bressack [James Cullen Bressack interview - click here] and met Daemon Hillin, a line producer there. So when the opportunity came to helm this movie, I suggested Thailand and The Asylum thought it might be cool to have a different feel for the movie. So they gave the green light on that location.

 

With King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table being quite a action-heavy movie, you just have to talk about the stuntwork in the film for a bit?

 

We had an amazing stunt team, these guys do huge movies and I was fortunate to be able to work with them. Very brave, very talented folks.

 

What can you tell us about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand?

 

I enjoy designing camera shots and action and working with the actors. I like to improv as well as change things up based on the location and if something doesnít feel right, I do what I can to make it work and feel organic.

 

Do talk about your key cast, and why exactly these people?

 

We had a great cast, the star Sara Malakul Lane was excellent, Russell Geoffry Banks, Jon Nutt, Kelly Jones, Harold Diamond - super talented folks who crushed it on set.

 

A few words about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

It was fun, but sometimes stressful due to the tight schedule, but people got along well and we made it work.

 

Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table?

 

It hasn't come out yet, but based on the trailer people seem to like it. And Iím hearing from the people who have seen it that they think itís cool.

Anything else you're dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?

Thanks for the interview!
