Season Of The Witch and Black Death

This just caught my eye and before I even read the article but saw the pic I thought "oy! Sean Bean! What you doing copying Nicolas Cage!" yellowflowergrin
Interesting that the production of both movies was back to back...surprising when Season of The Witch was long delayed and in the works many moons ago!

Shame the interviewer lost the part where Christopher Smith praised Nic!

Something I have wondered about with Season of The Witch, when it was first made and the blurbs came out, they called Nic's character Lavey. I think meant to be French, because they pronounced it La Vey.  Then the movie was delayed and when it came out he was called Behman. So, what I always wanted someone to ask in Nic's interviews about the movie is if they had to reshoot all the scenes where someone called him by name. Anyone know anything about that?

I must say, this movie looks quite interesting, I am a Sean Bean fan, but the description of the scene with Sean makes me think it would be too graphic for me. I have never heard of this director before, he sounds kind of interesting, and it is disappointing the author lost the discussion about Nic. He shouldn't have mentioned it then, so there!

You must be in heaven with the first National treasure movie then Lady True! starry
I am none the wiser about the Lavey to Behmen transformation! Equally curious though!

Regarding the reshoots, I always had the feeling that they wanted to amend the witch aspect of the story and make it less stereotypical, and more ambiguous, give behmen a motive to doubt her guilt (afterall, the parts of Rebekah's character were not filmed at all until the reshoots, and her Peasant Girl haunts Behmen throughout the movie.)
Nic aside, the Sean Bean movie interests me less because it doesn't appear to have a supernatural element...or did I miss that ?

I did enjoy the first NT quite a bit, Lula!

I believe some of the battle scenes in SOTW were added or added to also.

I am not a Sean Bean fan but I did like him in NT, love the 'villains' in both, Ed Harris was awesome too in Book Of Secrets!

this is going way off topic but i read an interview with Sean Bean once about how he and Nic played pool durug teh NT shoot, and a dinosaur skull or something fell on the floor and broke ....and Sean suggested super gluing it back together but Nic wanted to give it a special burial, loved it but never been able to find it again!!

I think they added some dialogue between Behmen adn Felson too, I remenber Rin Perlman saying they'd improvised a scene....the part where Felson says, "but she gave me so much more"! starry

I always thought the orginal name LaVey was a nod to the high priest of the Church of Satan.

I will see if i can find it Lady True..or maybe I dreamt it! flowerface

In the meantime I just came across this Nic interview...this part in particular seems relevant



Do you have any insight as to why, even though fans are eager to see medieval genre films, studios don't seem eager to put them out? Season of the Witch, Solomon Kane and Black Death have all had release-date issues.

I wasn't aware of these other movies that had been put on the back-burner. This is the first I've heard of them, so I don't really know. I know that with this film, it was a matter of trying to give it even more scope than it already had, so that's why this one was delayed. The producers just wanted to make sure people really got their money's worth by ramping it up.

I can't really explain too much the reasoning for the re-shoots except I know the producers wanted there to be a couple more battle sequences and to ramp up some of the effects in the movie, because it is a supernatural story and it is an adventure story. So they wanted to make sure they had enough of that. I know they're very happy with the results, though I haven't seen the finished product yet. I'm told that the movie is quite scary, which I am thrilled to hear, as it was my hope to make a really scary movie.

That's not to say it's strictly a horror film. I know it works on other levels as well, but I am a fan of the genre.
