Jason Blum Sets the Record Straight on Not Safe for Work
Yesterday we told you that Joe Johnston's Not Safe for Work was going to be headed straight to video. The news came from an interview the LA Times did with producer Jason Blum that made things sound kind of grim. Apparently that's not the case at all.
The original comment was as follows: "Some of my movies work, and some of them don't," Blum said. "I want to be able to say to the studio, 'We missed; let's go to VOD.'"
Bloody Disgusting got in touch with Blum, who clarified his remarks. He wasn’t addressing the quality of any film in particular, just whether one of his movies would work as a wide release. Moreover, in the above quote he was talking about his model and preference of options rather than directly addressing any specific movie or the quality of the film. And, for the record, he “thinks it's great.”
There you have it, kids!
For the film Johnston reteamed with his Captain America star JJ Feild (Neil Marshall's Centurion) along with Tom Gallop (The Bourne Identity) and Emmy winner Christian Clemenson ("CSI: Miami"). Max Minghella (The Social Network) stars as the cunning protagonist, while Eloise Mumford (ABC's "The River") plays his girlfriend, who works at the same office along with Clemenson.
Horror favorites Adam Mason and Simon Boyes (Blood River, The Devil's Chair) wrote the script, which follows a young paralegal trapped in an office with a killer on a secret mission to destroy files and anyone that stands in his path.
