INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.
Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Kyle Buchanan.
On a recent Price of Business show, Host Kevin Price visited with NY Times reporter Kyle Buchanan about his amazing book, Blood, Sweat, and Chrome.
According to a statement, “Building on the viral success of Buchanan’s Mad Max: Fury Road oral history for the New York Times Magazine, originally published in May of 2020, BLOOD, SWEAT & CHROME features more than 130 new interviews with key members of the cast and crew, including Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, and director George Miller, for a full-speed-ahead oral history of the cultural phenomenon.
“The story of this modern classic spanned nearly two decades of wild obstacles as visionary director George Miller tried to mount one of the most difficult shoots in Hollywood history. Production stalled several times, stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron clashed repeatedly in the brutal Namib 2 Desert, and Miller’s crew engineered death-defying action scenes that were among the most dangerous ever committed to film.
“Even accomplished Hollywood figures are flummoxed by the accomplishment: As the director Steven Soderbergh has said, “I don’t understand how they’re not still shooting that film, and I don’t understand how hundreds of people aren’t dead.”
“Kyle Buchanan takes readers through every step of that movie making experience in vivid detail, from Fury Road’s unexpected origins through its outlandish casting process to the big-studio battles that nearly mutilated a masterpiece. But he takes the deepest dive in reporting the astonishing facts behind a shoot so unconventional that the film’s fantasy world began to bleed into the real lives of its cast and crew.
“As they fought and endured in a wasteland of their own, the only way forward was to have faith in their director’s mad vision. But how could Miller persevere when almost everything seemed to be stacked against him?
“With hundreds of exclusive interviews and details about the making of Fury Road, readers will be left with one undeniable conclusion: There has never been a movie so drenched in sweat, so forged by fire, and so epic in scope. BLOOD, SWEAT & CHROME is a must-read for pop culture devotees, movie buffs, and Fury Road fans.”
