Anton Corbijn Anton Corbijn: Appearances David Michod Film: Life Film: The Rover Interviews: Print

I revisited an interview with Anton Corbijn during his time promoting A Most Wanted Man during Sundance this year and this little snippet caught my eye this time.

Film: The Rover

It’s a first for me to hear there was a hesitation to allow Guy Pearce’s character to wear shorts (!!!)

Anyway, here’s a couple of excerpts, please go to the source for the full article.
