Ric Roman Waugh says his career as a Hollywood stuntman played a "huge" role in his transition to writer-director. "It gave me a sense of the narrative process," says the Snitch filmmaker. "I could come into a piece of material and then put my stamp on it narratively, but also construct it in a way that I know, production-wise, [will] make it completely organic and real.
"You don't know if a guy like Dwayne [Johnson] is gonna come in and have the same persona as The Rock, or, is he gonna be able to immerse himself," Barry Pepper told me at the recent Snitch press junket. "He was just so dedicated to the film...I was really impressed."
