That's probably the best and most humane interview I've ever seen of him.
He has the right amount of self deprecating humour, aloofness and he's relaxed and charming but still with a hint of that ego and arrogance.
Too bad he couldn't keep up with that persona.
Watching him in later years...
I'm not gonna lie, this project does not sound good to me at all. All the talk about three different franchises with nine movies, with no existing fanbase or anything sounds like a typical over enthusiastic doomed from the start project from a novice producer.
Absolutely no offense meant to...
I think they will release it as a direct digital download/stream, like Vimeo on Demand or something like that.
Fans can buy it digitally, and they get more of the money straight away without a traditional distributor in the middle.
I only question how many fans are going to pay, and what kind...
Is he again wearing that same black kimono or whatever it's called?
I hope he'd mix up his wardrobe a bit, it's boring to see him wear the same stuff in every movie he does. It's like he just walks onto the set without getting into wardrobe or anything.

Splendid is the German distributor, they just bought the German rights, like they did with the previous three. Millennium is still producing.
All past beefs aside, if it makes sense for them they will get Seagal. Sly has gone on record saying he has reached out to Seagal in the past but he...
I think they could pull it off, but not if they're trying to produce it with a big budget.
The good thing they have going for it is that they're doing it in Thailand where it is cheaper to film compared to the US or Western Europe, and if Seagal is really passionate about it he could waiver his...
Thanks for the interview, DiDa!
That was very informative and candid. Thank you to Mr. Paar as well for his honest answers.
Really shows you the stage of the low-budget movie market and Seagal's career. The glory days of DTV are far gone.
1. How many days was the shooting schedule for The Perfect Weapon? And how many days did you have Seagal on set for?
2. Can you say how much the budget was for The Perfect Weapon?
3. What were your experiences like in securing distribution for the movie? Did the fact that Seagal shot several...
