‘Sinister’ Star Ethan Hawke Talks About His New Horror Movie and the ‘Simplicity’ of Good Guys (VIDEO)
But the actor says he decided to appear in Scott Derrickson’s Sinister because of a longstanding relationship with its producer, Jason Blum, whose work in the Paranormal Activity franchise made him the perfect collaborator.
“If I really ever wanted to make a horror movie, this is the moment to do it,” Hawke tells Celebuzz. “[Jason] and I were partners in running a theatre company when we were about 20 years old… It was the right script with a great director with a producer I respect. It started to feel right.”
What challenges did Hawke face trying to make his true-crime novelist character charming?
In the film, Hawke plays a successful if self-important writer of books about real-life crimes. He says that a character like that is more interesting specifically because he might not do “the right thing.”
Sinister opens in theaters nationwide on Oct. 12. Watch the film’s trailer below.
