JJ: Wait, you’re a high school teacher and you’re held up in a mansion?? () I don’t know how much I can give away, because they’re very, very secretive. we’re on a school bus that gets taken hostage, and we end being held hostage. That’s when the energy is ramped up on set and I think it’s fun. JL: I guess working with the weaponry because there are a lot of guys around us that have some pretty advanced weaponry. JJ: Are they prop guns or real guns with no bullets?
