John Travolta, Oliver Stone 'Savages' interview - video

By
Oliver Stone and John Travolta team up for the first time for new movie Savages, a drug drama about a pair of pot growers who run into trouble with a Mexican cartel.

Digital Spy sat down with the pair to discuss surprising each other, finding a back story for Travolta's corrupt FBI agent Dennis and giving advice to rising stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Taylor Kitsch and Blake Lively.



Travolta admitted that he was keen to accept a role in Savages because it offered him the chance to go back to work.

"It was kismet, because I'd wanted to work with Oliver for years," he said. "This material was so exciting for me, I'd just wanted to be a part of it. I hadn't worked in a while so I was actually hungry to work.

"So Oliver got an actor that I was many, many years ago when I was starving to be distracted and do something great. There was another element to this, too, for me. To have Oliver be the one that is inviting you back to work was amazing."

Savages is showing in UK cinemas now.
