The Daily Mail has featured an interview with Australian director Simon Wincer about the story behind the filming of the 1996 The Phantom movie. With the 20th anniversary of the film just around the corner, it’s a timely reminder of just how much effort was involved in bringing the Ghost Who Walks to the big screen.
The article talks about the long, difficult road the Phantom has toward his first big screen appearance, discusses the cult following the movie has earned since its VHS and DVD release, how the film exposed Catherine Zeta-Jones to the world and the difficulties of shooting sophisticated action scenes with 1996’s unsophisticated technology.
Perhaps the most interesting tidbit from the article, or at least the most exciting, is that Wincer confirms there is “talk” of a Phantom reboot or sequel. This gives strength to the rumor started by Billy Zane’s tweet recently.
