The director of Beyoncé’s video for "Girls (Who Rule the World)" says it will be epic.
During the premiere of Water for Elephants, MTV caught up with Francis Lawrence. He was fresh off the set of the video. "I just shot a Beyoncé video at the beginning of this last week, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, which was fun," said Francis, who hasn’t shot a video since his work on Lady Gaga’s "Alejandro" in 2009.
Although Francis could confirm a few details about the video (i.e.: expect lots of dancing), Bey’s pretty much ordered him to keep a tight lid on what we’ll see in the clip.
"She would probably have me shot if I said anything…. Some stuff spilled out, but she wasn’t happy about it, so I’ve been sworn to secrecy," he said, likely referring to pics and a paparazzi video from the set which found their way online last week.
One thing Francis can say about the video for "Girls (Who Rule the World)," which features Beyoncé leading an army: "It’ll be big; it’ll probably be one of the bigger Beyoncé music videos ever done," he promised. "And, I can say that I think the song is unbelievable."
