In Depth Mike Deluca Interview
Xoanon @ 12:56 am EST
The folks at Fade In Magazine really went full tilt on this amazing interview with former head of production at New Line, Mike Deluca.
The interview was conducted in the summer it seems, months before Deluca and New Line parted ways, so the irony here is hard to ignore. Deluca talks about his youth and his many years with New Line, he speaks about his thoughts on today's Hollywood scene, and where he thinks it will go. He is equally frank about his success and failures in the movie biz. I think many of you will learn allot about this man by reading this 10 page interview.
I've spoken with Mike Deluca an several occasions, always via email, yet you still cannot miss the feeling that he's 'one of us'. He's the fanboy who sits in the movie theatre and gets excited by the flashing images he sees on the screen. He's a man sitting in a place reserved for stuffed suits and power ties, who answers fan emails from time to time, totally off the cuff.
I had the chance to wish him all the best when I heard the news about his departure from NL, and even among all the hoopla that surrounded that day, he wrote me back thanking me, this is one suit that will never get stuffed.
