Una delle notizie più incredibili degli ultimi mesi è quella che ha visto Werner Herzog coinvolto nel nuovo film di Tom Cruise, One Shot, non in veste di sceneggiatore o regista e neppure come produttore.
Ma come partner sullo schermo. Nell’adattamento dei romanzi di Lee Child, Herzog rivaleggerà con Cruise in un ruolo insolito, ma non poi troppo a sentire quanto riferisce a Movieline…
Yes, I am acting again. I’m fairly good as an actor when it comes to roles of hostile or dangerous guys, or violent and debased and dysfunctional characters. And of course, since this is a big Hollywood film, they have studied my performance in other films. So I was not involved in any casting; I was just invited.
E su Tom Cruise:
No, he does not work with me. He works with the director, Chris McQuarrie. I’m only a partner in crime onscreen. But let me try to describe him: Yes, he has worked with some very, very good — very good — serious filmmakers. But what strikes me is that sometimes you can tell from five miles’ distance: “This is a professional man. He means business.” He’s extremely well-prepared, very good to work with, very respectful — a very kind human being. And you can tell, strangely enough, from five miles’ distance.
