Robert Patrick Talks The Rising Hawk, Revisits His Legacy in The X-Files, The Sopranos and More [Exclusive]
Robert Patrick first rose to prominence as the T-1000, the relentless machine squaring off against Arnold Schwarzenegger's Og model in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Autograph seekers at genre conventions are just as happy to talk to the 61-year-old actor about Agent John Doggett, his character in the final two seasons of The X-Files. Movieweb jumped at the chance to chat with him by phone, in the run-up to the release of The Rising Hawk, directed by John Wynn and co-directed by Akhtem Seitablayev. An action film set in the Carpathian Mountains of the 13th Century, The Rising Hawk is based on 1833's Zakhar Berkut, a work of historical fiction by Ukrainian author and poet Ivan Franko. Patrick spoke with us about playing one of the most famous fictional heroes of Ukrainian literature; working alongside fellow Sons Of Anarchy veteran Tommy Flanagan; going up against the late James Gandolfini, as indebted gambler Davey Scatino,

The Rising Hawk - Jennie Kermode - 16262
Ukraine produces around 35 films a year. Most of these are small scale dramas; action films are rare. Taking on an epic story like that of Zakhar Berkut with a big budget and an international cast is ambitious indeed. A huge hit on release there last year, the film, renamed The Rising Hawk, is now about to be released internationally, but it's a very different experience if you don't have the same cultural background and sense of national pride - so how does it translate?

Whilst it's billed as a historical epic based on real events, it's important to understand that the latter description applies only in a loose sense. The film was already been attacked for inaccuracy, which is not altogether fair - like its Scottish counterpart Braveheart, it's actually adapted from a historical novel - Ivan Franko's Zakhar Berkut, previously filmed by Leonid Osyka in 1972 - which...

Robert Patrick Will Fight a Mongolian Army in His New Film Project The Rising Hawk

Robert Patrick is set to star in a crazy-sounding new film project called The Rising Hawk. This sounds like a fascinating project for Patrick and it's very different from anything that he's done before. 

The story is set in 1241 Ad, and it "follows a rebellious Ukrainian villager who, after losing his mother in a vicious attack by the relentless Mongols, must join his father (Patrick) to unite 500 of their fellow villagers and fight against a 10,000-strong Mongolian Army."

That sounds like it has the makings of an epic film. It will be directed by Akhten Seitablaev and John Wynn from a script written by Yaroslav Voitseshek and Richard Ronat. The plan is to shoot the film in Ukraine later this year. 

Patrick currently stars in the CBS series Scorpion and it's always great to see him land a good movie gig like this!
