Are Michael Bay’s film sets really that intense?
Written by Reynolds’ “Deadpool” collaborators Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, “6 Underground” follows six people who fake their own death and team up to take down bad guys as an elite action squad. Mélanie Laurent, Dave Franco, Adria Arjona and Corey Hawkins co-star.
“You never know when you are supposed to be shooting or what you are supposed to be doing or where you are supposed to be going or what you are supposed to be saying,” Reynolds added. “But somehow, some way he and his editors make it all kind of come together on the screen and you get this unbelievable spectacle of a movie that’s muscular and a huge event. There is a rhyme to his madness.”
When asked about Martin Scorsese’s recent comments about “The Irishman” viewers not watching the Netflix movie on their phones, Reynolds said: “You should be able to watch whatever the f–k you want to watch on whatever f–king device you want to watch it on. I don’t know. I would say that’s just the way things are.”
Bay, meanwhile, was a bit more down the middle: “I don’t want my movies to be watched on a phone either. But movies aren’t that bad on these new TVs that have HDR, high dynamic range. Listen most of the Academy votes on TVs, okay. We all love movies. I’m a big cinema guy. But, the great thing about Netflix is it’s a new voice out here and it’s a strong voice. And they do interesting content. So, that’s why I appreciate it.”
