Colin Farrell Talks 'Brutal' MISS JULIE Role & SAVING MR. BANKS
Hollywood superstar Colin Farrell discusses his most recent big screen endeavor, SAVING MR. BANKS, as well as recounts one of the trickiest and toughest shoots of his life as part of the cast of Liv Ullmann's stage-to-screen adaptation of August Strindberg's MISS JULIE as part of a new interview.
Farrell candidly reports, "It's tough, as tough as this job can be. It was the toughest time I have had in 15 years by a mile."
Also, Farrell added of the shoot, "It was hard, it was brutal."
Filming took place on the prestige project in Ireland earlier this year, with Ullmann directing from her own script based on the iconic play.
"The behavior and the sustained cruelty and trauma are just brutal. It was cool, it was interesting but it was tough. I was glad to be done with it, like a few others. It was very challenging but it will be interesting to see what it becomes." Farrell states.
So, what's next now that SAVING MR. BANKS is in theaters and MISS JULIE is in the can? "I'd like to do a comedy. SAVING MR. BANKS was really weepy so I'd like to see the audience laugh," Farrell amusingly concludes.
MISS JULIE explores class and gender roles and largely centers around an aristocrat's daughter and her romance with a dashing young valet. Strindberg's 1888 play was highly controversial in its day for its frank discussions and depictions of sexuality. No release date has yet been announced for the film.
