J.J. Abrams recently sat down to be interviewed by British author Neil Gaiman for BBC Newsnight. The purpose of the interview is mainly to discuss his new book, “S.,” along with collaborator Doug Dorst. There is a wonderful discussion of the importance of books versus eReaders that many book lovers are sure to appreciate.
Abrams also discusses realism in film today, with regard to what is technologically possible in the realm of visual effects.
Naturally, the topic of Star Wars pops up – albeit briefly. Gaiman references the recent casting calls that took place in the U.K., to which Abrams responds, “it wouldn’t be Star Wars if there weren’t some fantastic actors who happen to be British.”
