- Feb. 8 - As Kurt Wimmer begins filming on his new
movie Ultraviolet in just a few hours,
he has sent the fans of EQ the following letter...(comment here...)
To Jen and all the fans of Equilibrium,
after the release of EQ I had to wonder whether I would ever see
another day fulfilling my life's ambition as a director on a film set
again. Or if, in fact, as it appeared, the thing that I wanted most in
life would now be forever out of my reach. Well, by the grace of God,
in a few hours, barring disaster, I will step onto a set once more. I
cannot predict the outcome on any level. I can only say that it was
extraordinarily hard getting to this point and that there is no doubt
that this is far and away in terms of scope, the most ambitious film of
this budget to ever be made, and that the odds are definitely not in my
favor. But Jen, the kind words of fans of EQ like yourself have buoyed
my spirits and given me the strength to fight my way back to this
point. From the bottom of my heart, thanks. I will endeavor to pay you
back in the only way I know how - by making the best film I can.
UltraViolet begins in 10 hours.
Your fan, Kurt

- Feb. 1 - A new section about the training
in Equilibrium has been added to the Gun Kata
page & includes the following statements...
Once Bale took
the role, he also went into physical training. John Preston is one of
Libria's most skilled martial artists - a master of Kendo and of
Libria's special "Gun-Kata," Wimmer's innovative fighting form that
merges Westerstyle gunplay with an Eastern Karate sensibility. Bale
worked closely with stunt coordinator Jim Vickers to get a crash-course
in the Japanese fighting arts as well as the Zen of handling multiple
"There are some really amazing choreographed action sequences in the
film," Bale points out, "and I wanted to be ready. Although I studied
martial arts for 'American Psycho,' I needed more training for the kind
of big-scale Kendo fights in EQUILIBRIUM. I took an eight-week course
in Judo, and I so enjoyed it, that I look forward to doing more action
Adds Wimmer: "We were immensely lucky to discover that Christian is a
gifted athlete. He has the ability of a trained dancer to remember
choreography instantly and I honestly believe that he made the action
scenes in this film work as no one else could have." - Equilibrium's Production Notes
