Working with Dolph has been amazing! Wish these false positive covid tests would stop happening so we can finish this movie

I don't really understand the sentence : does she find the testing process exhausting (thus delaying the shooting) or has the shooting stopped because of a positive test ?

Good thing is Dolph's daughter Ida arrived in Alabama, so she's still on board as (I guess) as Shea's daughter.
But Tim Man (Adkins' choreographer) is not part of the shooting. I wonder if they just rehearsed the stunts and don't need him on set, or if it means ther's gonna be less fight scenes ? (so far, it's just assumption to talk about the movie, I trust the team to get the best thing possible :lol: )

It's likely that positive tests have disrupted filming, thus delaying the shoot at times. I would think they have to wrap up within the next few days. Don't think this is a movie that will film beyond the Thanksgiving holiday period, but that's just an assumption.

Gotta be real tough for these sort of smaller productions to film in this era of COVID.

I'm very happy with the level of action we've created for Castle Falls. Here's a tiny clip. Think the action fans will really appreciate what we've accomplished in a period where Covid-19 has made making movies so so difficut. I think the fans will be happy with this one. SA

So, you’re currently in Alabama right now shooting Castle Falls with Dolph Lundgren; how is that going?

Yeah, Birmingham, Alabama. It’s fine. It’s very difficult making a movie amongst all the COVID restrictions. You lose a large part of the beginning of your day with all the tests and there’s a hell of a lot of money spent on all the tests, which, of course, is necessary. But it was hard enough at this budget level anyway. The amount that you’re spending on the COVID tests takes two days away from your production schedule, two shooting days that you’ve lost so it’s not easy. We’ve been shut down a couple of times because of a scare and we’ve got one day left to film. I think we’ve finally done it. We started in March (laughs).


Do you think that this might change the way movies are made? My friends were saying recently how this could be the end of the big two hundred million-dollar blockbusters and that Hollywood might actually go for the smaller, more mid-level pictures now because streaming is going to be the way of things for a while.

That’s an interesting question. If people aren’t going to go to the cineplexes then I guess you could be looking at something like that, because that’s where the big bucks are made, isn’t it? When it comes on streaming and DVD and all the rest of it, there’s a hell of a lot of people out there that are just going to download this stuff for free. So that’s a huge amount of revenue lost. So, if you’re Avengers 3. That’s not a great situation to be in, is it? If you spend $250 million on your movie you need to make that back. So, I don’t know. I think eventually we’ll get back to normality and people will go back to the cinema because you can’t beat the shared experience with the crowd and the energy that brings. Being the first to see the movie on opening night, going in there with your popcorn, I mean, I miss it. I look forward to going back to the cinema.


Oh, yeah, definitely; hopefully it will be sooner rather than later. With Castle Falls – How are you finding Dolph as a director?

It’s been good actually. He’s very much concerned about the character and story, to be honest, a lot of action directors are very visual people and not so much concerned about silly things like a story sometimes (laughs). Now there’s been a hell of a lot of attention to that from Dolph and long conversations about who my character is and where he’s coming from and what the stakes are, creating a backstory and really delving deep into who this guy is. So, it’s been fun. It’s been rewarding. I feel good about the film. I mean, you never know until you’ve seen the first cut of the film, whether it works or not. But it was a really good script, great script to read. So that’s the first thing you need and I’m very satisfied with the action we’ve done, even though I’ve not had as much time as I normally have. From what I’ve done I’m happy with it from what I’ve seen so far. If the story comes together with that and you care about what’s going on with these two characters, then I think we might have a movie in there.

Scott gives a good interview, he's always pretty insightful and honest. It's a shame COVID is affecting these productions, I mean you can't imagine something like Hard Night Falling shot in even less days and with even less "production value"...Dolph has sadly reached just about rock bottom recently a few times as it is.
