David Gordon Green talks about 'Camp X-Ray' & mentions Kristen

CS: It's funny, people are pointing to "Prince Avalanche" as your return to indie, but you've continued to produce indie movies even while doing your studio comedies, so what's the latest thing you've been working on?

Gordon Green: Actually, I was out on set yesterday. I'm producing a movie that stars Kristen Stewart called "Camp X-Ray" that a friend of mine, Peter Sattler is directing. It was great to go out to that set, the star of "A Separation" was in it (Peyman Moaadi ) and I'm a huge fan of his, so it was kind of cool to see them in action. It takes place in Guantanamo, so they're shooting at a prison, so it's kind of fun.

CS: One of my nurses is a big Kristen Stewart fan, so she is definitely excited for "Camp X-Ray."

Gordon Green: Right on. Well, I think it's a great change of pace for her, and I'm excited to see it, too.

(Note: David Gordon Green is Camp X-Ray' executive producer & also directed Kristen's 2004 movie 'Undertow')
