The movie’s main villain, The Man in Black, is a psychotic killer with a penchant for killing children.
The movie stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Jason Bateman, Matt Damon and Amy Adams, as well as director Josh Boone.
Boone and Fassbeck are co-writers.
Boone said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that he was inspired by a book of the same name by American writer Richard Dawkins.
“I just think the movie’s been written and done in a way that speaks to a very specific, very specific kind of person,” Boone said.
“Dawkins is a very literal, very literalist thinker.
The Man In Black is a psychopath, a sociopath, who’s a murderer of children, but his mind is a brilliant, brilliant writer.”
In a tweet, Fassback said: “You know what, it’s funny how you could say that the movie is about me, and then the movie itself is about this character.”
Boone told THR he was thrilled to be a part of the movie, and he added that he had read a lot about the book.
“The Man In The Black’s very unique and very different in many ways from the kind of people you think of as psychopaths,” he said.
Boone also said that he and Fasbeck wrote the script together.
“It was a great honor to work on this film,” he told THR.
“Josh and I, and I don’t want to say we wrote it together, but we were very much together in writing it.
And I really think that Josh has such a talent for writing characters that have a sense of humor, a sense that they’re not quite perfect. “
He’s such a creative mind.
And I really think that Josh has such a talent for writing characters that have a sense of humor, a sense that they’re not quite perfect.
They have a heart.
And they’re very sensitive, and they want to make sure that everybody is treated with dignity and respect.”
Boone also shared that Fassbach was one of the first people he met when he was working on the first “The Interview” movie in the summer of 2017.
“So I think Josh really knows how to tell a good story, and when he writes a good script, I think it works out really well.””
