*Monday night the cast of “2 Guns” hit the red carpet for the New York City premiere of their upcoming film.
Many celebrities were in attendance, including Robin Thicke, 50 Cent and Caron Butler, to support the film’s cast members Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Paula Patton, James Marsden and Bill Paxton.
Kormákur had previously worked with Wahlberg in “Contraband” and developed a friendship. But this was his first time working with Washington and he admitted he was intimidated by his presence on-set.
“I was, like everyone, scared of Denzel,” Kormákur said. “How can you not be?”
“He’s just an icon. He’s one of the best actors of our time… of all time. Standing there and telling him that I didn’t like what he was doing, or I had to do something different, is not an easy thing. But I promised myself that I’d do it anyway. I’ll stick my head in the lion’s mouth, and I’ll hope he doesn’t bite.”
Kormákur also weighed in on Director Spike Lee’s decision to turn to the crowdfunding website Kickstarter to raise funds for his next film.
“I think if you don’t need it [money], let the other ones have it,” Kormákur said. “Or if it helps the whole thing to get attention maybe that’s a good way of doing it…”
“But I’m basically saying, I don’t think he needs it. I’m sure he can finance his project differently. But who am I to judge him.”
“2 Guns” hits theaters nationwide this Friday.
