At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Chris Evans. He talked about why he selected Before We Go as his directorial debut, what he learned making his first film, how he didn’t want to tackle something too ambitious his first time out, what he wants to direct next, his desire to meet Tom Brady, and a lot more. Here’s what he had to say:
- Is it true he became an actor/director to get better seats at Fenway Park and Patriots Place?
- Talks about how he’s never met Tom Brady and he really wants to.
- What was it about this material that said he had to make it? Talks about how he had to put himself in the movie to get it made and didn’t want to take on anything that was too ambitious.
- Looking back now, is there something he wishes someone had told him before filming began?
- Has he located the next project he wants to direct? It’s a studio gig.
