DELIVERY MAN releases in theaters on November 22nd!

It's hard to believe it has been 9 months already, since I was given the opportunity to visit my first live movie set!!

Last December, Disney and DreamWorks invited me to NYC to see Vince Vaughn and Cobie Smulders tape a scene in their up coming movie Delivery Man (In theaters November 22nd!!)  

I also got to meet and interview the director Ken Scott!!

Ken is a very passionate man when it comes to making this movie, especially for the second time!! 

"There’s very little examples of this, of a director re-doing his own movie.  We had the chance to actually see the movie with many American audiences, and I saw their reactions and I really thought that it was a movie, it was a story that could really connect with an American audience.  So basically what it is, it’s the same story, yet it’s just integrated into the American culture."

How was directing the remake different than the original?

"Directing a remake, especially since it was my original, I had to get into a frame of mind to make sure everyone that I worked with - the actors, all the heads of departments, and even myself, were not just copying something.  We wouldn't have that great creative energy, the magic that you want in a movie.  

When you make a movie it’s all kinds of decisions and, moments and if you just copy you don’t have that.  The magic doesn't appear on screen, for everyone.  So for me that was very important not to just copy something.  Then again, I didn't want to be trying to make something different just for the sake of making something different!"

Why choose New York to do the movie?

"Well, New York was for me the greatest place to shoot this movie because it’s five hundred and thirty-three kids that have to live in the same town..  There are so many different neighborhoods, and the kids are very different from one another.  In the sense that they have different realities.  So it really helped, the fact that I was filming in different neighborhoods.  Right away you understand what that kid’s about.  If there’s a kid that’s living in Chelsea, or living in the Bronx.  You know, it’s all very different.  It was great to be here."

Was Vince Vaughn always in mind for the remake?

"Yes.  Vince Vaughn for me was perfect for this character.  The way the whole story is built, he’s in every scene.  He’s there all the time.  And I wanted the tone of the movie to be very much like Fatherhood and that brought me naturally towards a dramatic comedy.  You know it’s a comedy and it’s a drama.  Fatherhood is very much like a dramatic comedy.  There are some very funny moments, there’s some more dramatic moments, there’s some more difficult moments.  

I found that Vince Vaughn has the capacity for making us laugh.  He’s a great actor.  Very charismatic.  He was a perfect actor for this story.

It was so much fun to visit the set, and get to meet Ken, Cobie Smulders (for my second time!!) and Vince Vaughn.  Watching a scene be taped, showed us that there is a lot more involved in making a movie then you could ever realize.  

We watched Vince Vaughn repeat a four word sentence at least 40 times before it was just right!!

I absolutely loved how Vince and Cobie have a great chemistry together, even while not being taped.  The two sang us a song in between takes!!  They sang "Let's give the bloggers something to write about."  We laughed and laughed.  I really hope it makes it to the bloopers reel!!!

Over all I had a great time, and can not wait to see the finished movie!!  I will be able to point out to my Hubby the scene I saw!!!
