On the set of Jon Hewitt’s Acolytes

May 19, 2008

Someone brought this to my attention. An interview with Joel Edgerton on the set of Jon Hewitt’s up coming teen serial killer movie, Acolytes. I have had the privilege of seeing the rough cut last year and it was totally excellent then, so now it must be schmick.

In this interview see footage of Jon Hewitt directing. It has a brief moment of Jon caring for the well being of his cast. It brings back certain fond memories of our early days of collaboration on Bloodlust, our shared first feature. And Joel Edgerton is great in Acolytes. This is one of his best roles. A good actor should always always play a psycho early. Just ask Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale about that. I was impressed with Joel way back when he did the Henry plays with John Bell in the 90’s. He remains one of my favourite contemporary Australian actors.

Here is the interview from last year. Acolytes played at the Cannes market last week.
