Exclusive : Battleship Update!

Update! : Just discovered that the reshoots for the film were built into the schedule. They were planned all along (for the Spring) so as I suggested below, no need to worry — this movie is gonna blow the competition out of the water! Everything they’re doing on the film – reshoots, tweaks to the finale – all built into the schedule. So it’s all good!!

“Battleship”, the feature film spin-off of the board game we all played growing up (before moving onto the nifty ‘Computer Battleship’), may be in the can, but it’s is still a good year away from release. According to actress Brooklyn Decker, who plays ‘Sam’ in the uber-expensive tentpole, there’s still quite a bit of work to be done on the sea-set actioner.

Says Decker, “We will do reshoots. We have shot a bunch of alternate endings. There’s a lot of CGI to be done – a lot of stuff in post.”

Reshoots?

“Yes, depending on the storyline and where they want to take it we might be doing some reshoots”, explains the cordial actress.

The picture, which pits the crew of a fleet of ships against a supernatural entity, was directed by actor cum filmmaker Peter Berg.

“He was amazing. We agreed on nearly everything. It’s great when you’re on the same page”, said the model cum actress, in town to cheer on her husband Andy Roddick at the Brisbane International Tennis Tournament in Brisbane. “He is great – and he’s especially great with new actors. He loves it that there’s no ego to protect and we’re all just in there having fun and working together.”

Liam Neeson, who plays Decker’s father in the movie, echoes the 23-year-old acting newcomer’s sentiments. “He said to me, ‘Pete’s one of the better directors I’ve worked with because he gives you direction but he also allows you to be comfortable and free in what you do. And you’ll likely notice that the movie doesn’t feel like it’s this polished super-styled movie, it’s characters in conversation, it feels gritty and real” – that’s a huge compliment to Pete .”

Sounds like it’s going to be a cool ‘big’ flick!

“Battleship” is released May 2012.
