The headlines over the past few weeks have been dominated by headlines about the upcoming reshoots for this December's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Although initial reports suggested there was turmoil behind the scenes, it has since come out that these reshoots are no different than what you would expect on most films. While most members of the cast and crew have remained silent on the reports, Mads Mikkelsen commented on them in a recent interview with The Independent. Mikkelsen, who plays Jyn Erso's (Felicity Jones) father--reportedly named Galen--in the film, revealed that he would only be on set for one day of the four week shoot.
"I have one day. I can’t remember when, in two weeks I think. (...) Basically, all the big films I have done always have reshoots, it is part of their budget. They’re either not super happy with a scene bit, the way we were acting, or maybe there’s something they want to add. It’s not a new thing, it happens with every film. Whether it’s bigger or less, I have no idea, I have nothing to compare with. It’s the same film, it’s just adding little bits here and there to do the final polishing. That’s my feeling."
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16th and stars Felicity Jones, Forest Whittaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Donnie Yen, and Diego Luna.
