Last night at the London premiere for the film, Is Anybody There, David Morrissey spilled some information to Empire about what it was like filming his upcoming mega-film Centurion directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent).
We haven’t heard much about this film since the first photo of Olga Kurylenko showed up with her as a now snow covered femme fatale whose tongue had been cut out by Romans. At that time the Director told us a little bit about her character, he said, “she’s had a hell of a time and she’s out for Roman blood.”
Now Morrissey fills us in to some of the details of his character. Check out what he has to say below…
“It’s all about the Roman legion in England, so that’s why I have a crew cut! It’s all action sequences: all I do is run around, fighting, and riding horses! My character is one of a team of seven who are trying to escape and the Scottish Picts are after us. My character is basically Michael Fassbender’s right-hand man really and that was a great job to do, very physically draining but I loved every minute of it. I love working with Michael Fassbender, he’s a great actor and someone we’ll be hearing a lot of in the future, I think he’s going to be a huge star so it was wonderful to work with him.”
For those of you who don’t know, the film is about “a splinter group of Roman soldiers fight for their lives behind enemy lines after their legion is decimated in a devastating guerrilla attack.”
All signs are pointing straight towards gory action flick! From what we’ve heard about Kurylenko and from Morrissey I think we can be assured that this film will have a lot of special effects and bloody fight scenes.
Are you exited for the film?
