'Savages': Taylor Kitsch on Oliver Stone's drug thriller, and Blake Lively's unusual role -- TRAILER
Finishing out the Taylor Kitsch high-wire hat trick of 2012, Oliver Stone’s Savages promises no rickety airships, no alien hordes, no massive CG nautical warfare. Instead, the hard-edged thriller, adapted from Don Winslow’s novel of the same name, focuses on a much more earth-bound type of pyrotechnics, with Kitsch and Aaron Johnson (Kick Ass) playing pot dealers who take on a lethal Mexican drug cartel.
“We’re this boutique-y kind of beyond A-grade marijuana dealers that have a low profile, more or less, and keep it that way on purpose,” Kitsch tells EW. “[The cartel] is basically Walmart. They come in, and they’re like, ‘Hey, we want your business.’ I don’t want to give it up. And Johnson, who plays this Buddhist, he wants to give it up — basically, [the] last thing he wants is anything violent to go down. And the first thing I want is to engage.”
Engage, they do. Check out the trailer, and Kitsch’s thoughts on the special romantic arrangement between Kitsch, Johnson, and Blake Lively’s characters, below: READ FULL STORY
