Zoe Saldana Briefly Talks GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY And Director James Gunn


zoe saldanaZoe Saldana is winding down her promotional tour for her new film with Christan Bale, Out of the Furnace, but she’s still getting plenty of questions regarding her role as Gamora in Marvel‘s first big space epic, Guardians of the Galaxy. In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Saldana talked about filming the big comic book flick and how she just loves director James Gunn.

When asked what it was like working on a big Marvel blockbuster since things on set can easily ‘get out of hand,’ Saldana said that was in no way the case even though it was a tough shoot:

It wasn’t. It was super, like… James Gunn ran a tight ship and he’s a true director. He was born for that kind of leadership. He’s an artist that finally has been given the opportunity to showcase what he can really do. I like the fact that he’s super unique. There’s only one James Gunn. I like working [with] and meeting unique people in life. He wrote a great script and he really executed very gracefully. We had a blast. There were challenges. It was very hard shoot, there was a lot of training, a lot of hours in make-up, a lot of costumes that were very uncomfortable, but at the end of the day we were very happy with everything we put there on screen.

Everyone involved with Guardians of the Galaxy have been very complimentary of James Gunn, even above and beyond your usual actor/director fluff quotes. By all accounts it sounds like Gunn is putting something truly special together with the film. While we’re all dying to see a trailer, teaser, or official image from the movie, we’ll have to wait since the director says he’s currently hard at work with post production. Hopefully the cast will drop a few more details during the wait. What do you think about Saldana‘s comments?
