Last week DaniElle Delaite sat down with actors Sharlto Copley and Yul Vazquez for their new dark comedy Gringo directed by Nash Edgerton. The film stars also stars Joel Edgerton, Charlize Theron, David Oyelowo, Thandie Newton, Amanda Seyfried, Harry Treadaway and many more.
Sharlto Copley, known to many for his roles in District 9, The A-Team and Elysium, talks about the oddity of his character – a mercenary turned humanitarian and how, despite his emerging good side, he’d probably not want to spend too much time in the man’s company. Vazquez talks about the mystery of his character – but not too much because there’s an important twist in the mix
Gringo is released on the 9th of March, here’s our interview
Sharlto Copley & Yul Vasquez Interview – Gringo
Gringo Official Synopsis
Combining dark comedy with dramatic intrigue, Gringo joyrides across the border into Mexico, where all is not as it seems for mild-mannered American businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo). Crossing the line from citizen to criminal, Harold tangles with duplicitous business partners, Mexican drug lords, international mercenaries, and the DEA. As he attempts to survive in one of the most dangerous places on earth, the question lingers: is this ordinary man in way over his head, or is he two steps ahead?
