Though hardly a regular in the romantic comedy genre, Brendan Gleeson could not have been left in better hands, collaborating with one of the true innovators of the genre, Diane Keaton – as the pair share the screen in Joel Hopkins’ Hampstead.
We had the pleasure of speaking to the affable Irish star, on the glorious sense of unpredictability that comes with working with Keaton, and whether this experience has changed the way he now watches her movies. Gleeson also discusses his diverse range of projects, which has Paddington 2 coming up (we can’t wait for that) while we also asked for an update on the third and final endeavour in the aptly named ‘glorified suicide’ trilogy alongside John Michael McDonagh, following The Guard and Calvary.

Our good friends at Cameo – and in this instance, Phoebe Winter, spoke to Diane Keaton too for this charming piece of cinema, and that can be watched below.
Hampstead is released on June 23rd, and you can read our review here.
