Director John Singleton Interview for "ABDUCTION"

Uploaded on Thursday 22 September 2011


I've always wondered how John Singleton would be like in person. He's an intriguing director who started his path with the career-defining "Boyz n the Hood" in 1991. Since then, Singleton has mixed genres directing films like the unnecessary remake "Shaft" or the historical drama "Rosewood."

Singleton even found time to direct the sequel "2 Fast 2 Furious" and the crime drama "Four Brothers."

Now, the director is shaping "Twilight's" Taylor Lautner in his first leading man role in "Abduction." And I finally met Singleton. He's reserved but can be chatty, especially when talking about Lautner, the action star.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** How Lautner lassoed him to be the director of the film
*** Why he thinks the actor is an action star
*** The great cast!
*** The backstory of Lautner's Nathan
*** The two scenes I love the most
*** The biggest challenges in making the film
*** The film is about finding your own self, has Singleton found his place in the sun yet?
