Warwick previously opened up about how filming the original film when he was 17 and the mental toll it took on him.
He said: “The only reason I went through it before, for me, was because of Ron Howard, the director, and Val Kilmer [who played Madmartigan]“, said the actor.
“Because between the two of them, they didn’t let me feel the pressure of that.
“Today, directing and being the main character in a movie, I would feel the pressure of that. But at 17, I was just like, ‘Well, that’s pretty funny.’
