The first “Snake Eyes” press junket video has just surfaced online! Samara met with Collider to discuss their costumes, her thoughts on Snake Eyes and Scarlett having a relationship in the sequel, her stunt double Jacqueline Lee Geurts (who has been her stunt double since Ash vs Evil Dead), as well as her upcoming films Babylon and Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Check it out below!
Collider | With director Robert Schwentke’s Snakes Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins opening this weekend in theaters, I recently spoke with Samara Weaving about playing Scarlett in the Snake Eyes movie.. During the fun interview, Weaving talked about what people would be surprised to learn about the making of the film, why even though the costumes look awesome on screen they can be tough to work with, her thoughts on Snake Eyes and Scarlett having a relationship in a sequel, why she loves her stunt double (Jacqueline Lee Geurts), and more.
In addition, with Weaving currently filming Damien Chazelle’s next movie, Babylon, she talked about why she wanted to be part of the project and how she’s getting ready to film Chevalier de Saint-Georges with Kelvin Harrison Jr. in Prague soon. While not much is known about Babylon, it’s supposedly set in the late 1920s as the film industry shifts from silent films to talkies and the incredible cast is made up of Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Katherine Waterston, Max Minghella, Olivia Wilde, Tobey Maguire, Phoebe Tonkin, and filmmaker Spike Jonze.
If you haven’t seen the trailers, Snake Eyes tells the story of how Snake Eyes (Henry Golding) and Storm Shadow (Andrew Koji) met and how their brotherly relationship fell apart. The film also introduces Úrsula Corberó as The Baroness, Haruka Abe as Akiko, Tahehiro Hira as Kenta, Iko Uwais as Hard Master, and Peter Mensah as Blind Master.
Babylon’s star packer cast has recently added several additional big names to their list of actors and actresses, including fellow Aussie Phoebe Tonkin! Seeing Samara alongside all these massive Hollywood names is exciting, and we can’t wait to watch her career and recognition continue to grow with this project.
Olivia Wilde, Spike Jonze, Phoebe Tonkin and Tobey Maguire have joined the call sheet of Babylon, the ode to Hollywood’s golden age that Damien Chazelle is directing for Paramount Pictures.
Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt and Diego Calva, along with Jovan Adepo, Li Jun Li and Katherine Waterston lead the roll call for the production, slated to go before cameras next week in L.A. Max Minghella, Lukas Haas, Flea, Rory Scovel, Samara Weaving, Eric Roberts, P.J. Byrne and Damon Gupton are also part of the sprawling cast.
Written by Chazelle and set in the late 1920s during the movie industry’s transition from silent films to talkies, Babylon explores the rise and fall of multiple characters. Around town, the project has been described as “The Great Gatsby on steroids.” Character details are being kept locked tight, and it is unclear whether Wilde, Jonze, Tonkin and Maguire are playing fictional or historical characters.
Paramount is planning a platformed release, opening limitedly on Dec. 25, 2022, before going wide Jan. 6, 2023. Olivia Hamilton, Matt Plouffe and Marc Platt are producing. Maguire is doing double duty on the feature as he is also an exec producer alongside Helen Estabrook and Adam Siegel.
Wilde recently wrapped directing and starring in her thriller, Don’t Worry Darling. The New Line movie also stars Florence Pugh and Chris Pine. She is repped by CAA and Ziffren Brittenham.
Jonze, the acclaimed director of Being John Malkovich, Adaptation and Her, who last helmed documentary Beastie Boys Story, does make the rare foray in front of the camera. He’s appeared in an episode of HBO’s Girls, Johnny Knoxville feature Bad Grandpa, and had a co-starring role in 1999’s Three Kings, directed by David O. Russell. He is repped by CAA and attorney Warren Dern.
Tonkin is the Australian actress who may be best known for starring in The CW’s The Originals, a spinoff from the network’s hit series The Vampire Diaries. She is repped by Echo Lake Entertainment and Australia’s Marquee Management.
Maguire has been away from the screen for several years. He voiced the narrator in DreamWorks Animation’s 2017 hit, The Boss Baby, and last appeared on screen as reclusive chess grandmaster Bobby Fischer in Ed Zwick’s 2014 drama, Pawn Sacrifice. He is repped by WME and Management 360.
Exciting news, Samara fans! Our girl has joined the star-packed ‘Babylon’ cast, starring major-big Hollywood names such as Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt. Fans have been eager for Samara and Margot to do a project together for a while now, so we’re definitely hyped about this film. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait until 2023 for the release, but expect many updates here at Samara Weaving Heaven once filming starts! It’s exciting to see how well Samara is faring in Hollywood at the moment.
