Matthew McConaughey afviste rolle i ‘GOG: vol. 2’

I et interview med Playboy Magazine afslørede Matthew McConaughey hvorfor han sagde nej til en rolle i ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: vol 2’, til fordel for rollen som The Man in Black i ‘The Dark Tower’.

McConaughey udtaler:

“I like Guardians of the Galaxy, but what I saw was “It’s successful, and now we’ve got room to make a colorful part for another big-name actor.” I’d feel like an amendment. The Dark Tower script was well written, I like the director and his take on it, and I can be the creator, the author of the Man in Black—a.k.a. the Devil—in my version of this Stephen King novel. We’ve done the first one. It’s a fantastic thriller that takes place in another realm, an alternate universe, but it’s very much grounded. For instance, the gunslinger’s weapon isn’t a lightsaber or something; it’s a pistol. I enjoyed approaching my character as if I were the Devil having a good time, getting turned on by exposing human hypocrisies wherever he finds them.” 

McConaughey og Idris Elba har hovedrollerne i ‘The Dark Tower’ som instrueres af danske Nikolaj Arce og som har dansk premiere 27.07.2017.
