Oliver Stone

Oliver Stone has revealed that Savages was a difficult movie to shoot.

The Oscar winning filmmaker is back in the director's chair for his new project which balances young talent such as Blake Lively and Taylor Kitsch with more experienced stars such as Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro.

And Stone admitted that there were some scheduling issues during the shoot that did cause some problems.

Speaking to Flicks and Bits the actor said: "It was difficult, I can't say that it was simple. There was a lot of scheduling issues but I had potent talent. I didn't want to keep people waiting, we kept working.

"We worked fast but it was always location shooting so it was very difficult with the heat and the canyons and all of the houses we had to get in and out of fast. I can't say it was easy... This story is really about beach and sea and hell.

"The cast, it's young but there's an older element. The older generation is John Travolta, Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro, that's what I loved about that.

"And they actually sort of end up on the other side of the line, the three younger people are facing up against really an older pressure."

Savages is the first directorial outing for Stone since Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps back in 2010.

Savages is released 28th September.
