Philip Noyce's Next Project Is American Pastoral
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.17.2014

In an interview with Coming Soon, director Philip Noyce (Salt, Clear and Present Danger) revealed that his next project American Pastoral and touched on several other topics. Pastoral will star Ewan McGregor and is based on the 1997 novel by Philip Roth. Check out the highlights:

On the failure of Dirt Music: "I could never get a script that I thought captured the poetry of the novel. There's the problem. A poetic novel is difficult to translate into a movie, but it's a project I'll come back to in the future."

On not doing a sequel to Salt: "I decided to not become part of a sequel. I said, 'Look you, guys can get on with it, but I can't see how we can follow up on this.' They've had a lot of trouble all agreeing on what that story could be. I guess I've got a lot of friends in Russia. Any follow-up would just alienate more and more of my Russian friends. The bad guys are the Ruskies and it was hard enough with 'Salt' and I also wanted to move onto other things and catch-up with projects like 'American Pastoral,' which I'd been trying to make for years and not repeat myself."

On the remakes of Bloodsport and Captain Blood: "I couldn't get the scripts to where I wanted them. You feel after four, five or six years that you've made the movie, and you're still not confident that the document you're looking at every day is going to work, but you've sort of made the film in your mind because you've seen it over and over again."
