Agent Recreation – Interview with Grant S. Johnson


Howdy, Kingdom of AE! Again in late March, I had the pleasure of sitting down with art-history-scholar-turned-Broadway-producer-turned-film-director Grant S. Johnson, whose indie spy thriller Agent Recreation hits theaters on April 8.

Agent Recreation is the conspiracy-laden story of a CIA interrogation flawed, starring a motley crew of fascinating actors, from Katie Cassidy to Barkhad Abdi to Mel Gibson. CIA officer Harris (Dermot Mulroney) is concerned in missions to detain and relocate international nationals for interrogation. When Harris’ superior (Jason Isaacs) is murdered, he finds himself the scapegoat for the killing of a detainee (Barkhad Abdi) and should run from a staff of operatives despatched to carry him in (Adan Canto, Katie Cassidy, Rhys Coiro), led by a ruthless double agent (Annie Ilonzeh).

Grant’s earlier two movies, Frat Stars and Nighthawks, had been a darkish comedy and a gritty thriller respectively, and he continues his genre-hopping together with his third time within the director’s chair.

Grant and I talk about his theatre profession, his love of traditional artwork and the way it influences his motion pictures, and the way he unintentionally fulfilled a lifelong dream for Jason Isaacs.

We hope you benefit from the chat!
