Dice que hizo un buen trabajo en "algunos aspectos" (!!!)
¡A ver si es que piensa superarla con esta!
I quite like John Boorman’s Excalibur, and I think Boorman touched on things that I thought, “Oh, I’d like to have a go at that.”
He did a pretty good job at some aspects of it. It’s a genre that’s hard to tackle, and I wanted to tackle it.
What is a reference point to King Arthur that you’re sympathetic to. The only thing I could think of is elements of Excalibur. There wasn’t anything to copy, right? I have opinions about what they got right, what they didn’t get right. So now you’re going, “Well, you have to run that gauntlet.
Are you funny? Are you unfunny? Are you funny and serious?” All of that takes a while to find your tone and your voice, and it’s challenging, like in Sherlock Holmes.
I understand that it’s not a language that speaks to me. Game of Thrones speaks to me. I understand Game of Thrones. They turned it into an exciting genre, so it’s trying to find a voice within the genre. We’re not “f—“ing and “c—“ing every 30 seconds, which is hard to do in a PG. Game of Thrones came up with their own voice, and they stuck to it.
It was bold and identified. So it was me trying to find a version of that, a PG version, not of Game of Thrones, but it’s of that world. It’s fantasy, so it’s 500 to 1,500 years in the past.
Arthur is going to be powerful, but the question is can he handle the power. Are you corrupted by power, or are you not? He’s a product of his environment. He’s not a conventional good guy. He’s a squirrel trying to get a nut in the environment that he’s brought up in, so he must be judged in the environment he’s brought up in.
So much of what a character is to me is whether he’s charming.Do you like that character? It’s amazing what you can get away with when someone is charming.
