time, he’s spreading his wings and he’ll continue to do so—there’s more to him than just playing the nerd. Although he is a nerd, so it will be hard for him to get rid of it. How do you like to shoot action? My approach is quite simple. Make sure that there’s a story in it, a narrative, an emo...

lar, the author, pitched it to me at the premiere of Stardust. He hadn’t even written the comic, but I said, ‘You know what? You write the comic and I’ll write the screenplay.’ We did it at the same time. I just felt good about it—my spidey sense told me it was a film I would enjoy to make and e...

KICK-ASS posite to James McAvoy in Wanted getting ripped for the role. My character made me be anorexic. You went the Christian Bale route. And I didn’t have to do any crazy training. Chloe [Moretz, Hit-Girl] had to do three months. She used to fight with bamboo sticks and samurai swords a...
