Guardians of the Galaxy’s Glenn Close says Marvel film affords her the opportunity of doing independent films
James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy goes into production soon and Hollywood legend Glenn Close has said that the role in the Marvel film will allow her continue to take on smaller projects.
Speaking on stage at the 18th Nantucket Film Festival, the veteran actress admitted that she took the role in the Marvel Studios picture to pay the bills explaining "I just did two independent films this summer and I had an absolute ball with fantastic actors.
But in August, I'm gonna go off and do the next generation of Marvel Comics/Disney and I get to be the chief police of the galaxy.
But I'm doing that because it will then afford me to go do the other kind of movies that I really love, and hopefully I will have a great time on Guardians of the Galaxy. It'll be a new experience for me, but practically speaking it will mean that I can do those smaller movies and it'll be okay."
The six time Academy Award nominee will play the leader of the Nova Corps - a force of intergalactic, superpowered policemen in the film that will also feature Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Ophelia Lovibond, Michael Rooker, Lee Pace, John C. Reilly, Karen Gillan and Benicio Del Toro.
