Ryan Phillippe Begins The Big Bang Club

Ryan Phillippe Begins The Big Bang Club

Ryan Phillippe starts shooting for his new movie The Big Bang Club on Monday (March 30), in Soweto, Johannesburg, South Africa.

The Big Bang Club tells the true story of four young photographers (two given Pulitzer Prizes), recounting their relationships with each other and the stresses, tensions and moral dilemmas of working in situations of extreme violence, pain and suffering. It is also the story of the final demise of apartheid and the birth of a new South Africa. Phillippe, 34, co-stars alongside Malin Akerman (Watchmen), and Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights).

    I think it is wrong and so disruptive to take pictures of actors while they are working on the set trying to make their movie! I saw this most recently with Angelina Jolie making “SALT” and now with Jennifer Aniston. It was also done to Sarah Jessica Parker. I’m sure if I think of it, there are more. But actually watching a film being made takes the magic and the suspense and the surprise out of it. It is like sausage. It isn’t a very good idea to actually watch sausage being made. But the end result is quite delicious. I don’t know why more directors and producers don’t close off their sets. They really should. Maybe it is expensive to shoot on location, and closing off a set would involve even more expenses and disruptions to local businesses. Maybe they tried to get permission and were unsuccessful. But as a rule, I think movie sets should be closed to photographers.

  • Oh you!

    Dial it down, #2. This film is being filmed in cooperation with The Times of South Africa whose editor is one if the characters in the film. I believe they have an arrangement for shots. Anyway, they’ve been following along on their site.

    Hmm, Ryan Phillipe, Malin Akerman and Taylor Kitsch- so the casting’s not about acting ability, then?

    Since he cheated on the mother of his children, Reese Witherspoon, I don’t like him or care about his career.

    This movie looks like a really good story. Love Ryan he seems like such a sweet guy who was married to a BIOTCH!!! Love him and Abbie also wonder if she is there with him?

    “Since he cheated on the mother of his children, Reese Witherspoon, I don’t like him or care about his career.” You fan girls/boys sound like my grandmother, who if she was alive would be 110 years old. So self righteous. Reese has never accused her ex of cheating, but you all are so sure you know what happened and are ready to judge. If you want to pass judgement, pass it on those things you witness for yourself like how he maintains a cordial relationship with RW for the sake of the children. (She HAS publicaly said that.) And how involved he is in his children’s lives. (Ditto for that from RW.)

    Abbie you aren’t fooling anyone homewrecking cu**. How dare you even pretend. Two innocent children, you have some nerve.

  • Samantha

    It’s called “The Bang Bang Club”, Jared. :)

    I hope they don’t ruin this.

  • A Fan

    I like him!

  • Oh you

    Samantha, you’re right. I didn’t catch that. It is the “Bang, Bang Club.” The surviving two photographers are in on this production as is the Times editor who Malin is playing. I have high hopes for this one.

  • MAX

    This is a great story. Ryan consistently picks projects that are really interesting. I can’t wait to see this.

  • emma

    I love Ryan Phillippe he is a great actor and totally hot. I wish he was in more movies!!

  • yoyo

    Bwooop! Bwoooop! Douche alert!!

  • Wonderin

    Pay no attention to the children commenting above.

    How do they cover a tatoo so thoroughly? Look at this left arm. No tat.

  • lara

    It’s a spray they use to cover the tats. Ryan is such a hot dude he ages so well it’s crazy.

  • Alexa

    Oh JJ, please get the name of the movie right – it the BANG BANG CLUB

  • reese is phony b i t c h

    Reese Witherspoon is to blame for the divorce as much as Ryan – she’s a B I T C H who loved to put Ryan down all the time.
    Ask people who knew them!

  • Elle

    Ryan Phillippe is nice, I’m sure, but Taylor Kitsch is the reason I’ll both watch and buy this movie. Yes, because he’s hot, but also very much cos he is a great actor.
    Also I believe this is an amazing story, from what I know of it. And also from the fact that Philippe lately only ever plays in Well written, Well told movies.

  • ajna

    Reese Witherspoon is an organic portal.

  • Patty

    All true, Elle #20.
