"It really seemed like something that was truly original..." hmv.com talks to Dane DeHaan
It has only been a decade since director Gore Verbinski made his directorial debut with offbeat slapstick comedy Mousehunt, but in that time he has tackled a broad range of films including the 2002 remake of Japanese horror film The Ring, three films in the Pirates of the Carribean series and the 2011 big-screen reboot of The Lone Ranger.
His latest film, A Cure For Wellness, is a very different prospect to all of these and aims to recapture the spirit of the taut psychological thrillers of the 1970s. Dane DeHaan stars as an ambitious young corporate executive tasked with tracking down and retrieving the CEO of his company, who the board members feel may be losing his sanity. His mission takes him to a luxurious but mysterious 'wellness centre' located in a castle deep in the mountains of Switzerland. But not everything is as it seems and he soon finds himself drawn into a world of intrigue and dark secrets.
With the film arriving on DVD and Blu-Ray on Monday (July 3rd), we sat down with Dane to talk about Verbinski's vision for the film and why he found the script so exciting.
