The ego of the two actors caused there to be problems on the set from the first moment.
Having two actors of the stature of Harrison Ford and Brad Pitt in the same film seems like a safe bet for the film to do well at the box office, but also for the performers to shine with their performances. Nevertheless, many times the ego ends up spoiling what should have been a great shoot.
This has been recognized by Harrison Ford himself during an interview with Esquire magazine in which he recalled the complicated filming he lived with Brad Pitt on the film The Devil’s Shadow. “The first thing I want to say is that I admire Brad. I think he’s a terrific actor. And he’s a decent guy. But we didn’t even agree with the director until Alan Pakula arrived.“.
“Brad had a very complicated character and I wanted my character to be complicated too.So the movie wasn’t just about good guys versus bad guys. And that’s when I came up with the shooting scene. I went to work with a screenwriter, but when the day of the shoot came around, we didn’t have a script that Brad would have accepted. We both had different ideas about the film.”
“I understand that he stood firm on his point of view and I also wanted him to stand my vision, which, I think, ended up being imposed, or that’s what Brad felt. It was a complicated shoot but I loved the result,” Ford acknowledged on the tape of an IRA member hiding in the house of a New York police officer who does not know his identity.
Indiana Jones without hiding his old age
Although it may not seem like it, especially since for many he is still one of the great heroes of their childhood, Harrison Ford has already turned 80 years olda figure that, however, has not prevented him from shooting the latest Indiana Jones film and the dial of fate, which also opens on June 30.
In fact, Harrison Ford is so aware of his age that during the filming of the film directed by James Mangold, refused to be helped on set to show that his characterIndiana Jones had also aged like him.
