AICN: Talking ‘Black Sheep’

AICN: Talking 'Black Sheep'

Quint at AICN chats with Black Sheep director Jonathan King, while King was in town for the SXSW 2007 U.S. Premiere of his new horror comedy. From the interview:

Quint: Did you find the actors were excited to be part of a goofy horror comedy or was there anybody that felt it was too extreme?

Jonathan King: Yeah, I mean, I think at the end of the day actors in New Zealand are just pleased to be in a movie, I think. In fact, Oliver [Driver], who plays the hippy guy… we went to Toronto and people were like “Why did you decide to do this film?” and he’s like “ehh… because I got offered the job?” But it was a lot of fun, a great sort of feeling on the set that we were making something different. Even if it would of worked or not, we felt like we were making something different and I think they kind of had to put faith in the fact that it was going to be able to work, because they could be kind of exposed, they could have looked really stupid if it just didn’t come off. But because they had faith and they gave 100% of belief that it would work and believe… ya know, they kind of tuned in to how I wanted it to be played and I think it does kind of come off and so it feels good, yeah.
