New Line Cinema’s Snakes on a Plane is on its way to theaters August 18th and thr hype behind the film is uncanny. But will the film be what people are expecting? According to star Samuel L. Jackson the movie was everything he was expecting… and more. Read on to see what he had to say about David Ellis’ vision and ‘Snakes on a Mother F-cking Plane!’ The film centers on a ruthless assassin who unleashes a crate full of lethal snakes aboard a packed passenger jet over the Pacific Ocean in order to eliminate a witness in protective custody. The rookie pilot and frightened passengers must band together to survive…
Of course we were curious, why would Samuel agree to do a movie like ‘Snakes’? So we asked him if it was what he thought it was going to be, he replied, “It was what I thought it was… a movie I used to leave home on a Saturday afternoon and go and see so I could scream really loud and yell and freak my friends out… it’s all about a Saturday afternoon excitement film.”
A little later into the interview he talked about people criticizing him for his decisions and then explained that “It’s a real shame that a lot of people cant remember when they were kids and went to the movies… to watch Frankenstein chase people or the Wolf Man chase people or big spiders jump out of stuff… it’s a Saturday movie – I feel bad for people questioning my integrity for doing this [film].”
