The actor Glen Powell has triumphed with Top Gun: Maverick and Devotion: A story of heroes, but wants to change register.
Glen Powell He has been in the film industry since he was a teenager, but it is now when he has become most popular. Above all, for his interpretation of Jake ‘Hangman’ Seresin in Top Gun: Maverick, a film that has grossed more than 1,488 million dollars in 2022 and has only been surpassed by Avatar: The Sense of Waterwhich currently has 1,749 million at the box office.
In a recent interview with Collider, the actor Glen Powell has revealed in which genre he wants to participate. But curiously he is very far from the action movies that are now associated with him.
“I would love to do a musical. My entry point into acting was actually musicals, so I would love to do a musical, at some point. I have this document on my phone that I think about a lot, which is just my favorite movies I’ve ever seen. I know it sounds silly, but I always loved Apollo 13, so when I had to do Hidden Figures, I said, That was my Apollo 13 moment.”
“Weirdly, Top Gun was there, and Top Gun 2, or Top Gun: Maverick, was my Top Gun moment. So Devotion was like my Saving Private Ryan. That list has movies that I’ve always liked or resonated with, or that I felt were unexpected entries into expected genres. That document on my phone has different types of movies that inspired me to make movies in the first place. Sometimes that can be a guiding light on how I choose things. You can control certain things in this business and you can’t control other things.”
“Sometimes you are at the mercy of the winds, but you can also fight the winds and you can be relentless and wait out the storm. That’s what happened with Devotion. It took me a long time to see myself on screen, but it all worked at the right time, and it turned out that I had two naval aviation movies in 2022. I’m proud of both.” he concluded Glen Powell.
His next movies will be action.
Although he wants to do musicals, the next two projects of Glen Powell they are action Since we will see it in Hitman which is about an investigator who plays the role of a hit man to catch the people who order a hit. But he will also do Most Dangerous Gameabout which we don’t have much information but it is a comedy directed by Kate Silbermanwho has participated in films such as Do not worry dear (2019) y super nerds (2019).
