Collateral:BBCi recently sat down with Jada Pinkett Smith to talk about Michael Mann's Collateral in which she stars alongside Tom Cruise:

"It's going great! I'm really enjoying it," she told BBCi Films exclusively. "Jamie Foxx is incredible. I love Michael Mann and Tom Cruise is just a ball of sunshine! He's just a ball of electricity and I really, really enjoy him. It's been a wonderful experience and I'm having a lot of fun."

Of her character, Will Smith's Mrs said, "I play an Assistant State Attorney and I'm one of the characters who's on Tom Cruise's hit list." Then followed a rather OTT, if somewhat endearing, gush about everyone involved, particularly her "favourite, favourite, favourite, favourite" director Mann, whose advice she follows strictly.

"Finally, I just do as I'm told!" she said. "Finally, I'm willing to listen to somebody! Will's going: "Why can't I get some of that!""

Stay tuned for more on this project...
