Even though he had just done Need for Speed...
Dominic Cooper has no fear of video game films. The actor, who plays the antagonist Dino Brewster in the just-released Need For Speed, recently spoke with Collider about appearing in Duncan Jones' Warcraft adaptation. Check out the highlights:
On whether he had any hesitancy in signing up for a second video game film in a row: "I knew very little of the game, so the storyline within the script was just completely crazy, but exciting. Coincidentally, it was another big idea of a game, but I knew very little of the game."
On Jones' vision for Azeroth: "The world is very specific. What's been wonderful is seeing these guys who have this world in their heads for so many years. The creators of that game are suddenly on these sets, where the ideas that they had so many years ago have come to life, and it's been really exciting just to see that."
On the film's faithfulness to the game: "They have been so accurate and responsible to the game and to the people who play the game, love the game and want to see those characters in that world shown on the big screen. There is a huge responsibility for those people. They are the fans, and they are the ones who sit for hours, in that world. It's scary, but it's great. It's a huge lot of fun."
