PaddleYou sat down with the writer/director of Ping Pong Summer, Michael Tully, to discuss his love of ping pong, and making his new film with Susan Sarandon, Judah Friedlander, Amy Sedaris, Lea Thompson and a bunch of young actors. Here’s a taste:
PaddleYou: Favorite ping pong character in a movie or TV show.
Michael Tully: I would say in The Exorcist they’re playing ping pong.
I was going to do a montage of ping pong in movies to promote “Ping Pong Summer.” I’ve been avoiding ping pong movies since I’ve been living with this movie for so long and I didn’t see the other ping pong movies that have come out, but I just think it’s so great that there’s a ping pong table in the beginning of The Exorcist.
