Exclusive: Eye in the Sky director Gavin Hood on collaborating with the late Alan Rickman


For anybody who ever had the pleasure of working alongside the esteemed British actor Alan Rickman, there has always been a genuine sense of admiration for the man, and sheer joy at spending time in his company.

To mark the release of Eye in the Sky – the actor’s very final live action performance – we discussed the experience of collaborating with him with the film’s director Gavin Hood. A conversation, it has to be said, that nobody was particularly keen on ever having. Hood also speaks about combining the comedy with the tragedy within the piece, and how challenging a prospect that was to this thrilling drama.

Eye in the Sky is released on April 15th.
