Hiroyuki Sanada Mediates Wachowskis' Speed Racer Vision

by | August 22, 2007 | Comments

After menacing
Jackie Chan
and Chris Tucker
in Rush Hour 3,
Hiroyuki
Sanada
will play another villain in a big budget action movie: the
Wachowski
brothers
‘ live action
Speed Racer
movie.

"Evil again," Sanada mused
about his role. "Kind of bad guy but serious businessman. He manages the whole
racing industry. Money, money, money."

Shooting on mostly green
screen, Sanada had to navigate the two brothers’ sometimes differing visions.
"They are so funny, both of them have their own view. We’re going to try a lot
of ways, a lot of approach for each scene.
Andy says
something,
Larry

says something, and mixed together ourselves, and then find out the best way.
Both of them say okay, they ask me, ‘Are you happy?’ Done, go on."

At least with the Wachowskis’
new camera systems, the actors can see their work immediately. "It’s amazing.
They have big, big monitors on set and checking every shot. High quality,
modern, so clear and beautiful."
