Only TWO more days until The Suite Life Movie premieres!!!
JJJ sat down with Cole Sprouse on the set earlier this year and chatted with him about putting on his producer hat, the challenges Cody will face and what he really wanted to see happen in the movie. Check it:
On the series finally getting a movie: “The thing about that is that we really haven’t been itching to get a movie out of the series. We didn’t expect it to come anytime soon since we were so involved in the show. But I know they [the writers and everyone else] have been wanted to shoot a movie and it was just a matter of time. I, personally, wanted to see the cast more together in the film because right now it’s just Dylan and I and it’s lonely in Vancouver (laughs). I wanted a bit more scenes with everyone…but that’s okay. We’ll get them. It’s actually kind of fun by ourselves for a little while.”
On the challenges Cody has to face: “Dealing with Zack is his main thing. The strain between Zack and Cody is huge and you definitely get to see how both of them deal with it and finding a common ground in the middle.”
On his executive producer role: “It’s great. Dylan and I know exactly what we want and know how the characters are. People do trust us with the skill. It’s all about trust in that role. Cast and crew will come to use creatively to ask about lines and that kind of thing. We definitely put a lot of effort and creativity into it.”
On the theme of the movie: “The theme of the movie that Dylan and I really want is lighthearted-ness. We don’t want it dramatic at all. That’s not how On Deck or Zack and Cody ever played. We want it light and funny, nothing too serious and that’s they way it’s going so far. There are some definitely action sequences that you’ll get to see.”
More clips and interviews still to come! The Suite Life Movie premieres THIS Friday, March 25 @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
