Doug Liman doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. He is best known for his roles in The Bourne Identity and Jumper and the forty eight old always tries to accomplish the impossible. The known filmmaker some how was able to get permission granted to him for a military helicopter land in London‘s iconic Trafalgar Square for his latest film ‘Edge of Tomorrow‘ he said the only reason why he got it done is because he refused to take the answer no. He told The Times 2 supplement:
”It’s easy to propose something outrageous in a pre-production meeting like, ‘What about landing a military helicopter in Trafalgar Square?
”And the location manager will say, ‘That’s absolutely impossible. Two weeks before the scene they showed me the helicopter we were allowed to use and I immediately said ‘That’s not big enough’. And they said, ‘It’s all we could get, the RAF turned us down’. ”I said, ‘Go back and try again’. And they did and eventually the RAF said yes.”
He also admits that at time film making doesn’t run smooth but he insists challenges and ”chaos” help him better his work habits.He added:
”A little bit of chaos around me tends to bring out the best in my work.”
