The folks at THR have released yet another roundtable interview, this time focusing on producers. Emma Thomas (Interstellar), Cathleen Sutherland (Boyhood), Eric Fellner (The Theory of Everything), John Lesher (Birdman, Fury), Marc Platt (Into the Woods), and Peter Chernin (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Exodus: Gods and Kings, St. Vincent) take part in the 40-minute roundtable discussion, which touches on a number of topics from their unique perspective. Two of the participants used to be studio heads, which leads to some interesting discussion about the current state of the movie studio culture (note: this was filmed before The Interview debacle). The producers talk about everything from being fired, working with big directors, dealing with budgets, how China figures into the planning equation nowadays, and much more. It’s a fascinating talk from a unique perspective on the filmmaking process.
