    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 guns simultaneously.

    "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 roles."

    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
