Dev Patel, who is currently busy promoting his upcoming dark fantasy movie, The green knight, discussed his failed Star Wars auditioned in a recent interview. While speaking to Total Film, Patel also spoke about his reluctance to star in big-budget movies. This is what he said
“I don’t know if you can talk about it, because you sign a nondisclosure agreement. But yeah, I think they all did. They all auditioned for Star Wars. I remember, I think I was doing Marigold 2, and I sent them an iPhone video of my trailer in India. The next minute, I got a call and he was there, and that was fascinating. “
Unfortunately, Dev patel did not reveal what role he auditioned for. You probably don’t want to fall for the Mouse’s bad graces by breaking the NDA. Now that several Star Wars shows are in the works, Patel wants to preserve his chances for another lucrative opportunity. But according to the timeline, his audition happened sometime in 2014 while he was filming. Marigold’s 2nd Best Exotic Hotel. That would mean that Patel likely auditioned for a role in The awakening of the force. Poe Dameron or Finn, but he’s also a great fit for General Hux. Patel joins the ranks of Tom Holland, Michael B. Jordan and many others who did a screen test but couldn’t get the part.
But whatever it is, Patel doesn’t seem too concerned about not getting the part. He even said that he passed other similar roles in franchise films. “I mean, look, I’m not opposed. Those movies are a real sight when done right. I guess if I fit into these worlds … I don’t know. Alchemy hasn’t been right for me personally. These trips with people like David [Lowery]And things like that have really been the most nutritious. “
Then Patel clarified his stance on big-budget movies and why he hasn’t been seen in one yet. “I don’t want to shit on those movies, because there are some amazing artists who manage to go away and win an Oscar, and then go and make a great Marvel movie. And there are movies like Black Panther that culturally changed the paradigm in massive ways. I liked the first Captain America. I thought it was amazing, the action in that. And then it’s just finding the right one. It’s being invited, and also finding the right one. The ones that I’ve been offered, which I can’t speak about, haven’t worked for me at all “.
It seems that Patel was offered major roles in the past, but decided to hand them over in favor of more intriguing projects like Lion Y The green knight. But Patel is open to starring in comic book movies and he’s just waiting for “the right one.” Patel also addressed rumors that he is in the running for the next James Bond. “I don’t know why that is. I suppose I should take that as a compliment. But I feel like not all young British actors have been associated with Bond at some point, I’m sure.”
Currently, the gambler’s favorite is Bridgerton the star Regé-Jean Page and after that there are the likes of Tom Hardy and Idris Elba. The producers have hinted that they will go with a younger bond. So Hardy and Elba, who are 40, should be out of the race. Dev Patel may have a chance to take on the mantle of 007 after all.
David Lowery (Pete’s Dragon, a ghost story) directs The green knight from a script he adapted from a fourteenth-century English poem, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. The film sees King Arthur’s nephew, Sir Gawain (Patel), embarking on a quest to confront the main character, a giant tree-shaped creature. The film also stars Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Barry Keoghan with Sean Harris and Ralph Ineson as King Arthur and Green Knight respectively.
The green knight is getting praise from critics right now. That shouldn’t be too surprising considering that A24 is producing the movie. The studio has consistently produced fascinating original films. They even took the Oscar for Best Picture in 2016 Moonlight. Judging from the first reactions, The green knight It’s another solid entry in A24’s impressive filmography and he seems like a sure Oscar contender.
The green knight It will premiere globally on July 30. But due to the rise of the Delta variant of the Covid virus in the UK, the film was postponed indefinitely in the country. This news was first reported by Total movie.
