Interview: Director David Mackenzie on Brutal Reality of 'Starred Up'

3 September 2014 5:53 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

"You need to experience the dynamite... to know that the dynamite can go off." Just last week we featured Starred Up as our latest Monthly Must See, an intense, brutal but incredible prison movie from English director David Mackenzie starring Jack O'Connell and Ben Mendelsohn. You may not recognize the name at first, but you should certainly recognize his films - David Mackenzie's filmography includes Young Adam, Asylum, Hallam Foe (or Mister Foe in the Us), Spread with Ashton Kutcher, the sci-fi Perfect Sense and the music film Tonight You're Mine, all before he went on to make Starred Up. Last week I sat down for a chat with David on the realism of the film and finding actor Jack O'Connell, who plays inmate Eric Love. As a big fan of Starred Up, I was anxious to get a chance to sit down with Mackenzie and drill him on »

The HeyUGuys Interview: David Mackenzie talks Starred Up

5 August 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

With Starred Up, David Mackenzie has crafted an instant classic not just of the prison sub-genre, but one of the best dramas of the year so far. As his eight feature, the  movie treads new ground for a talent whose last high-profile movie was the Ewan McGregor-starring Perfect Sense, but showcasing astonishing performances from Jack O’Connell, Ben Mendelsohn and Rupert Friend – and proving he can bring out the beauty in the brutality – it’s also his greatest work so far. HeyUGuys had a chat with him about it.

Were you always interested in making a prison-set film? Or was it Jonathan Asser’s screenplay that drew you in?

It’s a hard one; you choose a project on the basis of a number of reasons. All the things that come across your path are a major reason, you know. I definitely think I was interested in trying to make a movie that was, »

Attack The Block Director to Take on Section 6

20 March 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Attack the Block director Joe Cornish is set to direct a spy movie called Section 6 for Universal Pictures. This will be the writer-driector's second film. The movie will tell the origin story of the formation of Great Britain's secret intelligence agency, Military Intelligence, Section 6, also known as MI6. Earlier this year British actor Jack O'Connell (300: Rise of An Empire) was attached to star in the project. 

Directors David MacKenzie (Spread) and Tom Hooper (Les Miserables) were up for the directing gig as well, but Cornish beat them out. The guy did an awesome job with Attack the Block. I've been looking forward to seeing what he would do next, and I think this will be a great project for him to take on. He recently worked on the Ant-Man script with Edgar Wright. »

Sienna Miller Joins the Clint Eastwood Drama 'American Sniper'

14 March 2014 6:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sienna Miller is in talks to star alongside Bradley Cooper in American Sniper, which is now being directed by Clint Eastwood after Steven Spielberg bowed out in August.

The project is based on the memoir of the same name written by Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle, who has the most confirmed kills of any sniper in U.S. military history. Sienna Miller is playing the soldier's wife, who is raising his kids while he is off fighting overseas. Clint Eastwood reportedly spent the past week deciding between Sienna Miller and Jaimie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World) for the role. Kate Mara was a contender for the role, but she was forced to drop out after signing on to play Sue Storm in The Fantastic Four.

Jason Dean Hall (Paranoia, Spread) wrote the adapted screenplay, with Bradley Cooper, Andrew Lazar and Peter Morgan producing. Shooting is scheduled to begin next month. »

24 January 2014 11:31 AM, PST | | See recent news »

"This is how young offenders turn out..." Film4 has debuted the first official UK trailer for Starred Up, one of my favorite festival films of 2013. It's a prison drama about a father and son in the UK's hardcore penal system and it's awesome, with touches of Bronson, A Prophet and Short Term 12. Above all it features a phenomenal lead performances by young actor Jack O'Connell (seen above) and Ben Mendelsohn, both of whom get plenty of time in the footage shown here. This trailer is actually pretty damn good, building up the intensity perfectly to the end. Hopefully this convinces a lot of people to see it. Take a look! Here's the first official UK trailer for David Mackenzie's Starred Up, direct from Film4's YouTube: Starred Up, directed by British filmmaker David Mackenzie (Asylum, Mister Foe, Spread, Perfect Sense), stars Jack O'Connell, Ben Mendelsohn (Animal Kingdom, The Dark Knight Rises, »
