Opening this weekend in limited release is iconic filmmaker William Friedkin's latest, Killer Joe, a controversial thriller based on the stage play by Pulitzer Prize winning writer Tracy Letts which will have most fans seeing fried chicken in a whole new light.
Kind of like how he forever changed pea soup with The Exorcist.
In anticipation of Killer Joe's release on July 27th, Dread Central recently had the opportunity to catch up with two of the film's lovelier co-stars, veteran actress Gina Gershon and newcomer Juno Temple, who discussed with us their thoughts on the controversial material as well as gave us some insight into their characters and the challenges and advantages to working with Friedkin's 'one-take' approach on set.
Check out our roundtable interview with Gershon and Temple below, and look for Killer Joe in limited theaters this weekend courtesy of Ld Entertainment.
