The 59-year-old filmmaker stepped in to oversee two weeks of reshoots on Eli Roth's movie adaptation of the video game and was relieved not to have the pressure of carrying the creative responsibility for the much-anticipated film.

Speaking to Collider, Tim said: "It was an interesting experience to come in and do reshoots on a movie that's not yours. It's a freeing experience where you feel like, I'm just here to help wherever I can."

The 'Deadpool' director explained that his love of video games also persuaded him to do the reshoots – which were completed with Roth's blessing as the filmmaker was busy on the slasher movie 'Thanksgiving'.

Tim said: "But my main reason, other than, you know, I have a huge affection for the video game industry, I want to see every video game adaptation succeed is, I'll be honest, I wanted to work with Cate Blanchett, and I wanted to work with Kevin (Hart) and Jamie Lee Curtis.

"And Ariana Greenblatt, the young lady who plays Tiny Tina, is amazing, which everybody knows from the 'Barbie' movie."

He added: "So it was a great experience all around. I was feeling a little rusty, so I was happy to get back in the saddle. This movie gets up and moves. It's a good ride."

Jamie stars in the film as Dr. Patricia Tannis and told viewers that they can expect a "wacky" picture when it is released next year.

The 64-year-old actress told Entertainment Weekly: "That was filmed during Covid in Budapest, and I believe it is being released next year.

"It's a little over-the-top, it's pretty wacky, it's fun."
