Transcript: Kellan Lutz Interview – New Moon
Rebecca Murray from About.com Hollywood Movies at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards.
So you’re totally done?
Kellan Lutz: “Yeah, I’m done with New Moon. I’m doing Nightmare on Elm Street right now.”
What happened on New Moon? Do we get to see more of you than we actually did in the book?
Kellan Lutz: “You’ll have to see. I had a lot of fun shooting that. It was so much fun. There’s a lot more of the Cullens in it, which was really nice. But we do stick pretty tight to the book.”
So how was Chris Weitz as a director?
Kellan Lutz: “Amazing. So chill. Being an actor in the second movie with all the weight off of your shoulders was really fun to look forward to. And then working with such a chill, mellow director – he was just so much fun to work with. So easygoing. And he had everything planned out so whenever we had a question as an actor, especially with our characters or the scene, he had answers right away.”
Was it easier this time becuase you do know what to expect, you know what the fans are going to be like?
Kellan Lutz: “Yeah. There was a lot of weight on our shoulders for the first one because we’re stepping in these shoes that the fans kind of envisioned their own person playing these roles. And for us to bring them to life and to hope and pray and cross our fingers that they approve, in a way, so we had the chance to do more movies and bring the books to life – it’s up to them. If they didn’t support us as much as they did, we wouldn’t be here doing New Moon.”
And you’re ready for the third one, right, in August?
Kellan Lutz: “I can’t wait.”
Have they shown you a script or antyhing yet?
Kellan Lutz: “No, no. It’s always on lock-down with Twilight.”
So you’re actually filming right now (on Nightmare)?
Kellan Lutz: “Yeah. I just go back from Chicago and going back right after the show.”
How’s that going?
Kellan Lutz: “It’s going really good. Really good. Like I’m really excited for it.”
And it’s not campy – it’s not a campy horror movie?
Kellan Lutz: “Not at all. Michael Bay’s a part of it.”
How do you make it not campy because kind of the whole series is like that?
Kellan Lutz: “You know what? Freddy Krueger is more of a psychological thriller so it was never really too campy at all because it’s not the slasher – it’s more internal.”
Were you a huge fan of the series before?
Kellan Lutz: “That’s the thing that scared me the most as far as horrors. Friday the 13th was scary and Chucky, but something about someone attacking you in your dreams, because you can’t do anything… It was like, ‘I don’t want to sleep.'”
