Christopher Lambert speaks!

This past week the American Film Market came to Los Angeles. They've moved the AFM from its usual time in February to the Fall so as not to compete with the conventions and festivals that crowd the first of the year -- and it's a successful move.

Among the many announcements of new productions and distribution deals, American World Pictures announced its deal with Christopher Lambert to produce action film Day of Wrath.

The international star of such franchise hits as Highlander, Fortress and Mortal Kombat will head of the cast of Day Of Wrath that starts shooting in January.

I spoke with Christopher Lambert in a conversation that began with catching up on a mutual friend, screenwriter and now director, Brad Mirman. We also touched on the DVD release of Lambert's favorite film Greystoke and Lambert's remarkable friendship with French President Jacques Chirac.

MovieWeb and I thank Christopher and American World Pictures for the opportunity.
