Exclusive interview of Burt Reynolds - 2013 dans English burt-juin-2013-3

Burt Reynolds

Yannick Boutot : What would be your welcome message to your French fans for this website ?
Burt Reynolds : I love France it is my favorite European country. French Film fans are probably the most knowledgeable in the world.

Yannick Boutot : First of all Mr Reynolds, what would be your best memory in your career ?

Burt Reynolds : That is a tough one….I so am blessed to have had this career…..there are many…..I have to think about which would be the best….how much time do I have ?

Yannick Boutot : What can you tell us about two of your last movies : A bunch of Amateurs and Hamlet & Hutch ?
Burt Reynolds : I have been wanting to some family stories, pictures the whole family can enjoy together, “Hamlet and Hutch” is exactly that, a character driven piece, with a wonderful story. In “A Bunch of Amateurs” I was able to work with my good friend Charles Durning, in his final film, who was at the time probably the best American character actor.

Yannick Boutot : A bunch of amateurs and Hamlet & Hutch have both a link to theatre and Shakespeare, what are your thoughts about Shakespeare and the differences between theatre and cinema ?
Burt Reynolds : How much time do we have? I am still thinking about the other question, and now this one! It is a complex question. In my opinion, Shakespeare can only be done right by English actorsthose that have been immersed in it, American actors just don’t get it right, Same is true of English actors trying to play Tennessee Williams. You almost have to have it in your DNA. As for film; the camera sees everything, you cannot phone it in, a subtle head tilt on film can be just enough, but on a stage it might not be enough, They really are two different forms of acting.

Yannick Boutot : Have you heard about the remake of Heat with Jason Statham ? Is there a chance for you to do a special appearance in it ?

Burt Reynolds : I heard about it, but wasn’t sure which “Heat” it was there have been a few. Jason will do well in it, he is the real deal. We did work together before, and I know he will do the picture proud.

Burt Reynolds & Rod Steiger

Yannick Boutot : You played twice with the great Rod Steiger in The last producer and in The Hollywood sign (just came out in France last year), what was it like ?
Burt Reynolds : He was just wonderful to work with. A consummate pro! He was so underrated too, he could do it all.There was some talk he would have been in ”A Bunch of Amateurs”, but it didn’t work out. I miss him , as I am sure all film connoisseurs do.

Yannick Boutot : Thank you very much Mr Reynolds.
Burt Reynolds : Thank You Yannick and “thank you”s to people that support this web site, I do appreciate it.


Burt Reynolds – June 2013

Interview exclusive de Burt Reynolds – Mai 2013



Burt Reynolds nous parle de ses derniers films, de théâtre et de cinéma.

Nous le remercions d’avoir accepté de nous répondre à nouveau. Je pense que l’interview de ce grand acteur est réellement intéressante pour tous les amoureux du cinéma.

Interview exclusive de Burt Reynolds - Mai 2013 dans Interview exclusive de Burt Reynolds burt-juin-2013-3

Yannick Boutot : Quel serait votre message pour vos fans français ?
Burt Reynolds : J’aime la France, c’est mon pays européen préféré. Les amateurs de cinéma en France sont probablement les plus instruits du monde.

Yannick Boutot : Tout d’abord M. Reynolds, quel serait le meilleur souvenir de votre carrière ? 

Burt Reynolds : Celle-ci est difficile … J’ai eu la chance d’avoir cette carrière … il y en a tellement … Je dois réfléchir au souvenir qui serait le meilleur … Combien ai-je de temps ?

Yannick Boutot : Que pouvez-vous nous dire sur vos deux derniers films A bunch of amateurs et Hamlet & Hutch (encore inédits en France, A bunch of amateurs a tout de même été distribué dans certains pays d’Europe) ?
Burt Reynolds : Je voulais faire des histoires familiales, des films que toute la famille peut regarder, Hamlet and Hutch est exactement cela avec une superbe histoire. Dans A bunch of amateurs, j’ai eu la chance de tourner avec mon ami Charles Durning, dans son dernier film, et il était probablement le meilleur acteur américain pour les rôles de composition.

Yannick Boutot : A bunch of amateurs et Hamlet & Hutch ont tous deux un lien avec le théâtre et Shakespeare, quel est votre avis sur Shakespeare et quelles les différences entre théâtre et cinéma ?
Burt Reynolds :  Combien de temps avons-nous ? Je réfléchie encore à l’autre question, et maintenant celle la ! C’est une question complexe. A mon avis, Shakespeare peut uniquement être bien joué par des acteurs anglais, ceux qui ont été immergé dedans, les acteurs américains ne le jouent pas de la bonne façon. La même chose est vraie pour les anglais qui jouent Tennessee Williams.  Vous devez presque l’avoir dans votre ADN.

Pour le cinéma, la caméra voit tout, vous ne pouvez pas jouer de façon téléphonée  mais une bonne tête peut suffire, sur les planches par contre, ce ne sera pas assez, ce sont vraiment deux formes de jeu différentes.

Yannick Boutot : Avez-vous entendu parler du remake de Heat avec Jason Statham ? Y a t’il une chance pour que fassiez une apparition ?

Burt Reynolds : J’en ai entendu parler mais je n’étais pas sûr de quel Heat il était question puisqu’il y en a eu plusieurs (en particulier Heat avec Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Val Kilmer). Jason sera bien dedans, il a du style. Nous avons travaillé ensemble et je sais qu’il fera honneur au film.



Hollywood-Sign-2001 dans Interview exclusive de Burt Reynolds




Yannick Boutot : Vous avez joué à deux reprises avec Rod Steiger dans The last producer et dans Braquage à l’américaine, comment était-ce ?
Burt Reynolds : C’était juste formidable de jouer avec lui. Un vrai pro ! Il était aussi très sous-estimé, il pouvait tout jouer. Il y a eu quelques discussions pour qu’il puisse jouer dans A bunch of amateurs, mais ça n’a pas marché. Il me manque, comme je suis sur qu’il manque à tous les amateurs de cinéma.

Yannick Boutot : Merci beaucoup Monsieur Reynolds. Thank you very much Mr Reynolds.
Burt Reynolds : Merci Yannick and « merci » aux personnes qui soutiennent ce site Internet, j’apprécie cela.




Exclusive interview of Guisela Moro


Born in Argentina, Guisela Moro is an actress who is about to do some noise with her new project called « Hollow Creek » with the legendary Burt Reynolds.

Exclusive interview of Guisela Moro dans Interview exclusive de Burt Reynolds guisela-moro-solo

Guisela Moro

Yannick Boutot : Hi Miss Moro, thank you very much for answering us. First, can you introduce yourself to Burt Reynolds’ French fans and French films connoisseurs ?
Guisela Moro : Bonjour Everyone! I’m an actor, writer, director. My name is Guisela, Mr Reynolds and my fellow actor friends call me Gigi. I was born in Argentina and became a US citizen years ago when I moved to the United States to pursue my acting and filmmaking career.

YB : If you have to define you acting, which word would you use ?
GM : without a doubt: PASSION

hollow-creek-movie-poster dans Interviews exclusives

Hollow Creek movie poster

YB : What can you tell us about your movie called « Hollow Creek » ?
GM : The plot line is: Seeking inspiration for his latest horror novel, a New York writer retreats to a remote cabin in the Appalachian mountains accompanied by his secret lover. Upon arrival they hear in the news about several boys missing in the area. A twist of fate turns the romantic interlude into an abduction murder case when the writer’s lover follows a lead to one of the missing boys and she mysteriously goes missing. He then becomes the prime suspect of her disappearance… The film was shot mainly in the Appalachian Mountains, coal mine area in West Virginia and some of our scenes where shot in South Florida. Our fans and people in the industry that saw the movie are calling it : “A haunting thriller with a heart wrenching love story” they say it reminds them of the movie GHOST in a way… which is wonderful feedback!

YB : How did you write the screenplay of the movie ? Did you have this story in mind for a long time ?
GM : Four years ago I drove all the way from Washington DC to the Appalachian Mountains (in the middle of nowhere) to pick up a Newfoundland Puppy. I purchased my puppy from a really good breeder named Laura McKinney. She owns Rockcastle Newfoundlands and we quickly good friends with. While driving through the coal mine areas in Southern West Virginia I fell in love with the locations… so many abandoned, ghost towns… so many beautiful authentic places, there was an instant nostalgic feeling that bonded me with the place. I immediately told myself “I have write a script and shoot a movie here some day!” . I actually told Laura the first minute I met her “I love this place, someday I will make a movie here” I’m sure thought I was nuts! On my way back driving with my puppy in the the back seat I came up with the storyline for Hollow Creek, so basically my dog Brandy is the reason why we shot this film.

She is also in the movie as a cast member, played the role of Angelica’s dog and did a great job! It took me about a year to write the script and then went on to write and work on more two scripts leaving HOLLOW CREEK On the shelf until I decided to produce it and the rest is history.

YB : How did you decide to direct this movie and what was it like on the set ?
GM : I don’t know if I consciously decided to direct when I first started writing the script… it just happen organically. I guess because I had written the story and I had every character, every scene in my head as part of my imagination it was a natural step for me to direct. The first day on set was a bit frighting, I realized I had a wonderful cast and crew team, amazing locations, a strong lead actor Steve Daron and a great DP Jon Schellenger and I told myself: “Oh my God, here we are and now I have to direct and act BOTH, I better pull this one off… I better make them believe I can do this!” … and I have to say that I enjoyed every step of it. It was was a special, humble experience. I learned so much each day on set. I learned to trust each one of my crew members, specially my DP. The graceful people from West Virginia opened their doors and helped us make this movie, they’ve been so generous in so many ways. So we ended up with great friends who helped and some very talented artists that are now part of our Hollow Creek family, the results show on stellar footage. Having a committed, hard working, talented team is key in making a successful film, and Hollow Creek is a result of that: great team work.

YB : How did you work with two difficult kind of actors : dogs and children ?
GM : This is a GREAT question. I remember all those times in film school and on every filmmaking seminar the one thing experts in the industry always said when making your first film was : NEVER have more than 2 or 3 locations, never work on exteriors keep the production mostly interiors, never work with children and never work with animals… Well guess I broke all the rules all together because in HOLLOW CREEK we had over 20 locations, half of them exteriors, we worked with 3 boys whose performances were incredible and with a total of 4 actor dogs! I don’t know what I was thinking… I guess you can say I was probably on filmmaking crack LOL


Burt Reynolds in Hollow Creek

YB : How did you get Burt Reynolds to play in your movie ? Can you tell us a little bit more about his part in the movie ?
GM : Mr Reynolds is our acting coach at BRIFT. We showed him a rough cut of some of the scenes that we had already shot in WV and he kindly accepted to play a special appearance as SEAGRASS LAMBERT, a rich coal mine tycoon and the grandfather of one of the missing boys in the movie. Steve Daron and I, plus another 13 characters in HOLLOW CREEK are his masters actors, we are part of Mr Reynolds master class at BRIFT. He is the most generous, giving, inspiring acting coach I have ever had… He has given so much back, no other screen legend of his caliber that I know of has done what he has… he is not retired living behind closed doors in a rich Beverly Hills mansion in CA, instead he chose to live in Jupiter Florida and to dedicate his life and his heart to his students. We owe him so much, I will always be greatful to him for this.

YB : What was it like to have creative control on your own picture ?
GM : If I were to chose one word to describe it, it would be : PRICELESS.

I believe in my heart that Art cannot be created if it’s pressured and controled by the goal of money making, the end result instead of Art would be a manufacture product and there is a big difference there… Art is pure and perfect when the artist behind it is free. So for me to have creative control is to have freedom.

YB : Is the movie completed ? What is the next step ?
GM : We are on our final stages of post production, starting with color correction next week, film will be completed in the next month or so. The next step is to have Test Screenings in Florida and in West Virginia then we’ve been offered by the WV film commission to share part of their booth in the AFM (American Film Market) in November. We are working as we speak with our sales and marketing consultant from CA getting the movie ready for the AFM, our main goal is to reach a successful distribution deal and hopefully be able to move into the next project.

YB : What would you say to Burt Reynolds’ French fans and French audience ?
GM : I want to say to each one of his fans in France THANK YOU for giving our beloved Mr Reynolds so much respect and love, we are aware here in the United States of the support France has giving him and his career over the years. Mr Reynolds has always talks wonderfully about your country, so mercie! Make sure you check out his performance in Hollow Creek, it’s a small special appearance but a dramatic HEARTFELT, PASSIONATE one you won’t forget.

YB : You have two other movies coming soon, what is your next goal and what can we wish you ?
GM : We have two other projects in our portfolio that we are looking to produce: a crime-action character driven movie called MOMENTS OF SILENCE and a Thriller based on true historic events called THE LAST HUNT to be shot mainly in Argentina. Wish us that we make the right choices that will keep us humble and able to produce great independent movies with a lot of production value. Wish us to find great investors! :)

YB : Thank you very much Miss Moro. It was a pleasure.
GM : Thank you Yannick and the Burt Reynolds fan club for their support to independent filmmaking, we hope to make you proud and look forward to you all seeing HOLLOW CREEK.

YB : What are your feelings about French movies ?

 BR: They are and always have been my favorite films.

YB : You played with Catherine Deneuve, what do you keep in mind about this experience?

 BR: I enjoyed the experience very much. She is the consummate professional. Always « there » for the other actor.

YB : What can you tell us about the movie « Stringer » and Elie Semoun ?

 BR: I don’t remember the film as much as I remember Elie. We had a wonderful time together and I had a great visit with him the last time I was in Paris.

YB : What were the differences between your Italian western experience (« Navajo Joe ») and American one ?

 BR: The Italian western is like making an opera. Bigger and louder and open to everyone’s ideas.


Navajo Joe

YB : You did a lot of movies with Hal Needham. What can you tell us about the last one, « Hard Time : Hostage hotel » ?

 BR: Hal is the best Stuntman that ever worked in the pictures. His staging is like a 3 ring circus!

The Last Producer by Burt Reynolds

YB : How did you become director of « The last producer » ? And was it a way to express your feelings about Hollywood ?

 BR: It would take a year for me to « express » my feelings about Hollywood. I became Director because of a need at the time of the producers.


YB : Over the years you had some health problem, how did you manage to comeback so quickly ? Acting was therapy for you ?

 BR: I bounce back quickly from health problems. In Hollywood they are so over the top about that stuff. Your dying one day and on top of everything the next.

YB : Uwe Boll is considered as a bad director, what was experience in « In the name of the king » ?

BR: It was fine.

 Image de prévisualisation YouTube

BR: It was fun —-  cheap and superficial.


Quinton & Burt Reynolds

BR: My pleasure.


Interview exclusive de Burt Reynolds (2011)


 J’ai finalement réussi à rentrer en contact avec un proche collaborateur de Burt Reynolds. J’avais essayé plusieurs fois, via les studios, les agents, mais sans succès jusque là ! Cette fois, la chance a tourné. J’ai finalement pu envoyer quelques questions et, miracle, je recevais quelques jours plus tard les réponses de Burt Reynolds. L’interview est plaisante, certaines réponses sont parfois un peu courtes mais c’est le lot des interviews par mail dans lesquelles il est impossible de relancer son interlocuteur. Burt a toutefois répondu fort aimablement à l’ensemble des questions posées. 


Yannick Boutot : Monsieur Reynolds, merci d’avoir accepté de répondre à ces quelques questions pour vos fans français. Tout d’abord j’aimerai savoir quel est votre film préféré parmi tous ceux que vous avez été amené à tourner ?

Burt Reynolds : Delivrance, car le film tient le coup des années. Il est intemporel. Le casting est irremplaçable en tant qu’acteurs ou en tant qu’amis.

Interview exclusive de Burt Reynolds (2011) dans Interview exclusive de Burt Reynolds BR-Delivrance-188x300


BR-My-Life-217x300 dans Interview exclusive de Burt Reynolds

YB : Il y a 15 ans, vous avez écrit « My Life », y a-t-il quelque chose que vous voudriez rajouter ou changer ?

BR : J’aimerai écrire le 2ème acte et le 3ème acte.

YB : Quels sont vos sentiments concernant le cinéma français ?

BR : Les films français ont toujours figuré parmi mes préférés.

YB : Vous avez joué avec Catherine Deneuve, quel souvenir en gardez-vous ?

BR : J’ai beaucoup aimé cela. Elle est une véritable professionnelle. Toujours présente pour son partenaire.

YB : Que pouvez-vous nous dire sur « Stringer » avec Elie Semoun ?

BR : Je ne me souviens pas autant du film que d’Elie. Nous avons passé un très bon moment ensemble et je lui ai rendu visite la dernière fois que j’étais à Paris.

YB : Quelles sont les différences entre un western italien tel que « Navajo Joe » et un western américain ?

BR : Le western italien, c’est comme faire un opéra. Tout y est plus grand, plus bruyant et ouvert aux idées de tout le monde.


Burt Reynolds dans "Navajo Joe"

YB : Vous avez tourné de nombreux films avec Hal Needham, quels sont vos souvenirs sur ces films ?

BR : Hal est le meilleur cascadeur avec lequel j’ai jamais travaillé. Etre sur son plateau, c’est comme être dans un cirque romain !

YB : Vous avez joué beaucoup de flics mais aussi dans des comédies, dans quel registre êtes-vous le plus à l’aise ?

BR : La comédie est plus amusante si vous avez le bon casting. Le casting fait tout pour une comédie.

YB : Comment avez-vous fait cette petite apparition dans « Strike Force » (aussi appelé « The Librarians ») ?

BR : Bill Forsythe est un vieil ami. Je l’ai fait comme une faveur et pour rigoler.

YB : Que vous rappelez-vous de « Crazy Six » avec Albert Puyn ? Il est réputé pour accorder plus d’attention à l’image qu’aux scénarios de ses films.

BR : C’était intéressant. Je suis toujours ouvert à tous les styles, si cela apporte quelque chose de nouveau au script.


The Last Producer - dernière réalisation de Burt Reynolds à ce jour

YB : Comment avez-vous été amené à réaliser « The last producer » ? Etait-ce un moyen d’exprimer vos sentiments sur Hollywood ?

BR : Cela me prendrait un an si je devais « exprimer » mes sentiments sur Hollywood. Je suis devenu réalisateur en raison d’un besoin des producteurs.

YB : Au fil des années vous avez connu quelques soucis de santé, comment avez-vous réussi à revenir aussi vite ?

BR : Je récupère vite des problèmes de santé. A Hollywood il en font tout un plat. Vous êtes mourant un jour et au top le lendemain.

YB : Uwe Boll est considéré comme un réalisateur calamiteux, comment était-ce de tourner « In the name of the King » avec lui ?

BR : C’était bien.

Image de prévisualisation YouTubeYB : Vous avez chanté « Let’s do something cheap and superficial » (faisons quelque chose de bon marché et de superficiel) qui a été classé dans les charts, qu’avez-vous retenu de l’expérience ?

BR : C’était marrant … « cheap and superficial » (« bon marché et superficiel »).


Quinton & Burt Reynolds

YB : Est-ce que votre fils, Quinton, travaille dans le cinema ? Est-il fasciné par le métier de son père ?

BR : Il s’intéresse au cinéma, peut être comme un monteur. Il a été bercé toute sa vie dans le monde du cinéma.

YB : Au nom de tous vos fans français, et bien sur en mon nom, je vous remercie de nous avoir répondu. Merci beaucoup Monsieur Reynolds.

BR : Le plaisir est pour moi.
