SDCC 2011: Interviews With Immortals’ Henry Cavill, Kellan Lutz And More

He brought us The Cell and The Fall and now director Tarsem Singh is back, but in, well, a more commercial way. His latest film, Immortals, is a big-budget, effect heavy, action adventure featuring Theseus (Henry Cavill), a man hell bent on taking down the individual responsible for killing his mother, Hyperion (Mickey Rourke). Hyperion’s on a mission to find the invincible Bow of Epirus and will do whatever it takes and kill anyone necessary in order to get his hands on it. And that’s where the gods come in, as they’re left with no choice, but to intervene for the sake of humanity.

The Immortals showing at San Diego Comic Con consisted of yet another Hall H extravaganza after which the cast and crew hopped on the roundtable circuit for some far more low-key discussions. First up was a chat with the film’s producers, 300 duo Mark Canton and Gianni Nunnari. Canton joked they only took on Immortals out of desperation, but, in all seriousness explained, “We’re very driven by stories and character, the two of us.” In terms of what differentiates this swords and sandals film from 300, Canton assured, “The look, the style, the way we shot it, it’s all different.” Nunnari wittily pointed out, the connection might have come from the fact that they printed “From the Producers of 300” on the Immortals poster. Oh, and Canton prefers Equal to sugar. Hey, I can’t judge; I only use Sweet’N Low.
