Martin Campbell on The Protégé and Why His Action Scenes Focus on Character First

With The Protégé now playing in theaters, I recently spoke to director Martin Campbell about making the action thriller. If you haven’t seen the trailer, the movie follows Anna (Maggie Q), an orphan who was raised by Moody (Samuel L. Jackson), a legendary assassin who trained her in his trade. However, when Moody is killed, Anna goes on the hunt for those responsible which leads her to an enigmatic fixer (Michael Keaton), who may be as deadly as she is.

During the interview, Campbell talked about the way he crafts action, why he always focuses on character first, filming the fun restaurant scene between Maggie Q and Michael Keaton, and why Green Lantern changed a lot in the editing room. In addition, we talked about his favorite Jackie Chan movie and stunt since he's worked with him in the past and I always like talking about Jackie Chan.
