Legendary Army Sniper Nicholas Irving Talks About Working on 'The Wall'


Director Doug Liman's sniper movie The Wall is available August 1st on Digital HD in advance of its Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD, and On Demand release on August 15th. We've got a clip from the film's bonus features.


Military advisor and legendary Army sniper Nicholas "The Reaper" Irving talks about how the movie is similar to his own encounter with a Chechen sniper in Afghanistan. You also get an idea of just how good Taylor-Johnson's American delivery is when you hear him speak in his native British accent.

The Wall is a military thriller about two snipers trapped behind a shaky wall while they’re involved in a cat-and-mouse battle with a hidden Iraqi sniper. Director Doug Liman (The Bourne IdentityEdge of Tomorrow) trusts WWE superstar John Cena (The Marine) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Nocturnal Animals) to carry the movie: they’re on-screen by themselves for almost the entire ninety minutes.

We interviewed Liman, Cena and Taylor-Johnson when the movie played in theaters earlier this spring. You can read that article here.
