Calista Flockhard stopped by the studio this afternoon to promote “Camp X”, the Lake Hope Features and Legacy Filmwork’s arthouse war film which also stars Liam Aiken, Paul Butcher and Malcolm McDowell. But that is not the only film she is currently co-starring in.
Carson: Thank you for coming down here, I hope traffic wasn’t too bad.
Calista: Oh, it was fine until we drove past this huge parking garage on Bogart Boulevard. The owner was washing all of his cars at once outside the garage and traffic was backed up for miles and miles.
Carson: I know the one you’re talking about! I don’t even go down Bogart anymore, I have to hit side streets.
Calista: Hopefully Mayor Harmer will get on that. Anyway-
Carson: Anyway, you are currently co-starring in “Camp X”.
Calista: Based on the book of the same name by Eric Walters. A wonderful author.
Carson: Yes. And the adaptation was written and produced by Costa456 through his Legacy Filmworks production company. What attracted you to the project?
Calista: I’m sure I don’t have to explain how hard it is to find a strong female role. Hollywood has been on an action man craze-
Carson: Which your husband [Harrison “Indiana Jones” Ford] is a big part of-
Calista: Yeah. So while he cracks the whip and looks for the Serpent of Eden, I have to watch from the sidelines. This project called for a strong female and I had seen Costa’s debut film, the one that Paul Greengrass directed, so when the producer personally called me and asked if I wanted to be in the film, I jumped for the chance.
Carson: This was your first HTG film?
Carson: And then-
Calista: Costa brought me with him to the Artemis Fowl series where I portray Angeline Fowl. And I got to work with Alan Rickman, which was a treat.
Carson: Will you be in the Artemis sequel?
Calista: (slaps Carson) It hasn’t gotten the greenlight yet. But if it does, I am signed up for it. So lets cross our fingers.
Carson: So, “Camp X” is in its 11 week and has raked in more than 50 million in the box office. Not too shabby for a limited release film.
Calista: Yeah, we’re pleased. I hope people will go out and see it before it is out of theaters. Don’t forget to give it a review if you do. Feedback is key to the process.
Carson: That it is, thanks for coming by Calista.
Both “Camp X” and “Artemis Fowl: Book of Fairies” can currently be seen in theaters.
