MTV talked to Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov about the anticipated March 28, 2008 release, starring James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman, Angelina Jolie, Common and Kristen Hager. Here’s a clip:
The director said he plans to once again create a reality brimming with visual revelations â€” and then take it all apart. “We will create a world, and then we will destroy this world,” he laughed. “The hero will discover the whole world. It looks ordinary, but it’s not. It’s an industrial world filled with weaving machines, lots of traps, lot of looms flying back and forth and predicting the future. The looms weave these fabrics, and the fabrics have a pattern, like a binary code, that has information. The weavers can read the fabric â€” they see the structure of it and they can read its messages. Then they know who has to be killed to keep the balance of the world.”
