I had such a great time talking to writer/director Ben Falcone and cast for the new Netflix superhero movie “Thunder Force.” Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer star as estranged friends who become superheroes in this action-comedy. And I laughed out loud!
Here’s the official synopsis of “Thunder Force”:
”Two childhood best friends reunite as an unlikely crime-fighting superhero duo when one invents a formula that gives ordinary people superpowers.”
I spoke with the actresses about their interest in the film, its message of hope for our day-to-day real-life superheroes, and putting on their costumes!
Writer/director Ben Falcone talks about the genesis of the film, the Chicago setting, and the music he used in “Thunder Force.”
A good superhero movie is as good as its villain and Bobby Cannavale certainly fits that to a T as the big bad The King. We spoke about his friendship with writer/director Ben Falcone and wife Melissa McCarthy, his character, and the film’s moral story.
Taylor Mosby stars as Octavia Spencer’s genius of a daughter named Tracy. Take a look at my interview with the young actress about the film, and working with Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer.
