Lord Of The Rings actor Sean Bean is set to appear in the indie movie Cleanskin before the turn of the year and he has revealed why he agreed to take the role. Sean states that the main reason behind his decision was the fact that the script was so well written and very interesting.
Bean explained, “Well, I got involved when my agent sent me a script that Hadi had brought and I thought it was very intelligent and a very thoughtful kind of script and it dealt with the issues facing us today, with terrorism that affects everybody's lives - a constant threat, as it were, or so we're told. And it is just something I have found really interesting, you know. I find it very interesting politically and socially.”
He then went on to discuss his character in Cleanskin, “I thought it was a very well written piece. I liked the character. He's a bit of a loner. You don't know very much about him and he seems to have- his mission is to capture these terrorists and stop them from doing what they're doing. It also has a bit of an edge to it, that it is a personal vendetta to some extent. So, it gives that added edge to his mission as it were.”
has already been involved in filming some rather big movies this year, including the untitled Tarsem Singh Snow White
movie and also the Silent Hill sequel, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D
. Sean also has a couple more impressive projects lined up for the future with the retelling of the classic Peter Pan tale in the movie Pan
and also The Magnificent Eleven
. In the meantime, Cleanskin
should be released before the end of the year.
