Video: Samara talks ‘Snake Eyes’ with Collider
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.
