So why a Serbian hitman? Isn’t that a stereotype?

When my third movie, Retribution premiered at the Montreal Film Festival there was a guy how walked up to me as the credits were playing and asked in a thick Eastern European accent, ” I loved your movie but why did you have to make the Hitman a Serbian, isn’t that a stereotype?” I guess he was referring to Serbian’s always being the bad guys. “Well I auditioned an Irishman, someone from Iceland and an American born in Vietnam, it was just the best actor was from your part of the world and I didn’t know the character was Serbian till the actor said he was on screen.”

I got a question last night about Rez Bomb in a similar manner. It’s funny how though many creative things end up the way the are because of random interventions and yet often people get too caught up/wound up by misinterpreting some of these random elements.
