If there's one thing we all know for sure, it's that the internet loves to blow things out of proportion. Take the reshoots on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story for example. People are freaking out despite reassurances that the filmmakers know what they're doing. Well, now it's time for one of the film's stars, Mads Mikkelsen, to put your mind at ease by letting you know that reshoots happen all the time and people just need to relax.
While speaking with The Independent (link below), the Danish actor—who also has a villainous role in this fall's Doctor Strange—confirmed that he's going back to the set of Rogue One for some reshoots, but he only has one day of reshoots...
There is a lot of talk about the ongoing reshoots, are you involved with them?
I have one day. I can’t remember when, in two weeks I think.
It’s been very mixed in the press, with two sides; some sources are claiming the film will undergo big changes while others are saying it will be very minimal. What’s the feeling you have from being involved with the film?
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.
Listen, I know how much everyone wants to freak out about this because people just aren't happy unless they're freaking the fuck out, but relax people. Ask yourself What Would Mads Do? The answer is, he'd probably put on bunny ears and stop giving a fuck what you or anyone else thinks...
