Transcript for Woody Harrelson Talks About His Innovative Live Film 'Lost in London'
The first one is joining us live from London where he is about to take on an ambitious new project. Something that has never been done before. Woody Harrelson. It's called "Lost in London." It is live streaming. Are you getting this, folk, directly to the theaters? One take. No breaks. If anybody can do it our man woody Harrelson can do it. No pressure here. My man, you've been in the business for many years now. You've done this, you've done that. We've never seen something like this. Why did you come up with this type of idea? Well, you know, a big fan of theater, I just -- I love theater and so I -- you know, I wanted to merge theater and film and so I had this thing that I wrote based on something that actually happened to me and I thought, you know, be cool to do this in realtime. The time that I thought you couldn't really do something in realtime, but since then the technology developed and so I thought, yeah, I'm going to shoot this in under 100 minutes in realtime but then I thought, well, where is the theater in that because there's no live audience. Well, that was the thought that has since caused me many sleepless nights. Including last night. Yeah, and so now that's what we're trying. So maybe you're sleep deprived but look so calm despite the fact you have 30 actors, 14 locations, 65 minutes streamed to 500 movie theaters. What is it that keeps you up? Just a lot of technical things going on and any of those things goes wrong, it could spell disaster for us. I feel great about the actors, I feel great about the story. I think there's some really funny stuff in this that people will get a good chuckle at and I suspect there's a lot of your viewers right now who are not wanting to tune in to see this thing succeed. Like a car crash. Either way I think it's going to be remarkable. You mentioned something about woody about the technical. I read you've done two rehearsals so tar and in one of them you lost the feed. The live feed. So what is the backup plan if that happens? Well, I'm probably going to jump off the bridge into the Thames. Not much of a plan there. No. We -- you know, what we'll do is we filmed one last night that went all the way through and if, god forbid, we do lose the feed we'll have to just fall back on that one and feel dreadful about it but I'm hoping that won't happen. You mentioned earlier -- By the way, I want to thank you guys. I want to thank you guys for being the first guys to talk about this and for, you know, being interested in the idea. It really means a lot to me. Thank you. Yeah. We will definitely be watching, woody. We've been talking about it for quite some time. So different. So creative? And taking chances. We're rooting for you to succeed. We hear it's based on real-life events and you got to believe there was something left out of this. Hey, woody -- Good luck, woody. We'll be watching, man. Tonight, tonight, tonight. Tonight. Tonight. Thank you very much.
