John Malkovich On Robert Zemeckis' "Beowulf" Process

by | December 20, 2006 | Comments

John Malkovich sure isn’t shying away from the high-end special effects movies these days. While doing some press for his recent "Eragon," the veteran actor spilled a few beans regarding his work on Robert Zemeckis‘ adaptation of "Beowulf."

This project is officially starting to sound pretty excellent to me. Here’s some fairly interesting stuff from Malkovich and IGN Movies: "Malkovich pointed out that he is not simply providing a voice for the motion-capture film. "No, it’s not that. You do everything but then it’s given a form of computer animation afterwards. But, no, we were all on set. We were all acting. It’s not film. There’s no film, there’s no lights. There are video references that the specialists and technicians utilize, but it’s actually all recorded on computer and all the data is fed to the technicians and then they will animate it."

Click here for the rest of the report, which isn’t all that unique, but does paint a pretty compelling picture for "Beowulf."
