Producer Jeremy Bolt Talks Shooting in Canada, Drone Cameras, How Much of the Film Is Factual, 3D, and More on the Set of POMPEII


While it’s always great to talk to actors and the director on a set visit, I always enjoy talking to producers because that’s where you can learn a lot about a production.  And on my Pompeii set visit last June, producer Jeremy Bolt was more than willing to share a lot of behind-the-scenes information during a group interview in between filming.  During the wide-ranging conversation, he talked about why they chose to shoot in Toronto, how the film couldn’t have been made ten years ago, how Titanic and Gladiator were huge influences on the film, why Kiefer Sutherland is perfect as the bad guy, how they’re going to use 3D, why they hired Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) to help write the screenplay’s language and dramatic structure, and a lot more.  Hit the jump for the interview.
