And so we shoot the beginning of the end in The Winchester. In all my films, the lead character is the focus of every scene and in every scene and you very rarely have time without them.
In ‘Hot Fuzz’, it’s only the first two murders that don’t feature Nicholas Angel. In ‘Scott Pilgrim’ there is only one short scene with Knives that doesn’t feature Scott. And in this, after seventy minutes of Simon Pegg leading every scene, you have one in the pub where Shaun is AWOL. Where did our hero go?
It made for a different energy on set too. And a rare lie in for Simon.
