Simon Crane: The challenge was always the scale of the battles. And also, we just don't want to bore an audience. You have to make it look different.
Wolfgang Petersen: This is an ensemble piece with 10 or 12 great characters and to cast that was fascinating. The actors we have are just unbelievable.
Eric Bana: Wolfgang was born to make this movie. And for me, there simply could not have been another director.
