PUBLIC VERSION. Filmmaker Espen Sandberg (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES, KON-TIKI, MAX MANUS: MAN OF WAR, BANDIDAS) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his craft and career journey! From starting out directing short films and commercials alongside his directing partner Joachim Ronning… to being tapped by the great Luc Besson to helm the western comedy BANDIDAS… to the pressures of taking on two biographical films in a row with 2008’s MAX MANUS: MAN OF WAR and 2012’s stunning KON-TIKI… to helming one of the biggest blockbusters of the last decade with the 5th installment of Disney’s beloved PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN franchise…. to stepping off on his own to direct his latest biographical adventure AMUNDSEN based on the life of Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen (now available!)… Sandberg’s filmmaking path has been as exciting to watch as the films that he makes! Espen and Adam commiserate over huge projects they lost to the pandemic and Joe gears up for this week’s premiere of his episode in the new season of CREEPSHOW (“The Right Snuff”) in this fantastic conversation between 3 filmmakers on opposite sides of the planet.
