The beautiful and talented onscreen actress-model Milla Jovovich sits with the folks at A.V Club to discuss about the new installment in Resident Evil series where she also brought up a short conversation about M.Night Shyamalan’s controversial film “The Last Airbender”. She reveals her desires to be a part of THE LAST AIRBENDER 2.
AVC: And yet it’s almost a career risk for a woman to be an action star. There are only a handful who’ve carried franchises – Linda Hamilton, Sigourney Weaver, Angelina Jolie…
MJ: I never looked at it like that before. What made it real to me was that it was something I really loved. I love the training, learning the stunts, doing them. I love feeling that power – doing things you could never actually do in life – like flying and doing backflips in the air! Like, I came over on a plane yesterday, and one the two movies I chose to watch were The Karate Kid and The Last Airbender, which I thought was awesome
AVC: The M. Night Shyamalan movie?
MJ: The action sequences were so good, and that little boy killed me. And I was all, like, in airbending mode the whole car ride home. I can’t help it. I love martial-arts movies. I grew up with my dad watching kung-fu theater every Sunday. So it was kind of my thing. I really want my agent to make sure they write a part in the next Airbender movie for me. I’ll be really upset if I don’t get to be a waterbender or something.
So far, The Last Airbender has earned an impressive earning from all the theatres around the earth and currently sits on $308.2 million, yet there are no words on a sequel being green-lit for production. We the fans of M.Night Shyamalan, of course, and personaly myself like the idea of seeing the talented Milla Jovovich to be in a M.Night Shyamalan film and we all would love to see her in The Last Airbender 2 as well as she is a capable action star. So, what you guys think of Milla’s comments and do you think M.Night would lock her in for The Last Airbender sequel if Paramount says the word “Yes” for the sequel?
