It’s been a busy few days for the MTV News crew covering 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, but fortunately we’ve been hard at work bringing scoops from the biggest and most buzzworthy stars on the hottest to a computer screen near you. See some of the highlights below!
Eliza Dushku Talks “True Lies 2”
Eliza Dushku took some time out of promoting “Batman: Year One” to stop by the MTV livestream and chat about her upcoming film projects. Unsurprisingly, a “True Lies” sequel question was thrown her way by a Twitter follower. Her response? It might be a little while.
“I think there’s been a little a little snafoo with the star. With the Schwarzenegger. I think it’s going to be a minute,” she said with a laugh. “For a while I was never even talking about it. And all of the sudden I started getting calls from the Governor’s office in California saying, ’You aren’t allowed to talk about ’True Lies.'”
Justin Timberlake And Amanda Seyfriend Explain “In Time”
The concept for the new Andrew Niccol movie “In Time” seems fairly straightforward at first glance, but now that the first trailer has hit the web it’s clear that there are a lot of complexities in the plot that need to be smoothed out.
Fortunately we had stars Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried to explain the concept of the movie for us so we can wrap our heads around the whole thing.
Kristen Stewart Starting “Snow White And The Huntsman”
One of the biggest reveals of this year’s Comic-Con was the chance to see Kristen Stewart in costume for “Snow White and the Huntsman.” She certainly isn’t the same princess we remember from our Disney movies, and Stewart said she can’t wait to jump into filming in the coming weeks.
“I am so, so excited. We’re in pre-production right now. I think [Snow White] represents so much that I can’t wait to get across to the entire world,” she said. “Rupert [Sanders], the director, we’re so in the middle of forming the story and getting into it that it’s hard for me to talk about. I mean, I’m training. I’m riding horses all the time.”
When Bond Met Indy
Jon Favreau headed to Comic-Con to have the long-anticipated premiere of “Cowboys & Aliens,” and he stopped by MTV’s livestream to chat about his experience with his two leading men: Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig.
“[It’s] these two guys competing to be the top dog,” Favreau said about the two iconic action heroes sharing the lead in this movie. “When they got cast in this film, that’s when the film took on its identity.”
Taylor Lautner Was Abducted By “Abduction”
Taylor Lautner came to Comic-Con to promote “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn,” but we are even more excited about his upcoming action flick “Abduction.” According to him, it didn’t take much for him to sign on board to the movie.
“The first time I heard the idea of the project, I knew that I wanted that to be my next movie. And then when I got the script, I couldn’t stop turning the pages,” Lautner said. “The story is really exciting, but the character is amazing.”
