Video Interview: Patrick Lussier Talks Cage, Sex and ‘Drive Angry’

By  · Published on July 27th, 2010

Drive Angry is crazy. Apparently, that’s the impression everyone got from the 3D trailer shown at Comic-Con’s Hall H just days ago. A film called Drive Angry being insane isn’t of much surprise though. Plus, it’s got Nicolas Cage at the center of it, and even he labeled it as a film that falls more in line with his midnight movies (like Vampire’s Kiss and Wild at Heart).

Who’s behind this piece of a possibly bizarre and exploitation-esque drive and kill actioner? Shockingly, the director behind My Bloody Valentine 3D: Patrick Lussier. If you’ve seen My Bloody Valentine then you already know Lussier gets this genre and knows how to craft creative, bloody fun. Valentine was a blast and from what Lussier says here, it sounds like he’s found the perfect followup.

I was fortunate enough to sit down with Lussier (while wearing my snazzy Hope For a Better Tomorrow t-shirt) to talk about things blowing up, Nic Cage, and hot sex scenes that aren’t about sex.

Here’s what Lussier had to say about Drive Angry.

Drive Angry 3D hits theaters on February 11th, 2011.

Longtime FSR contributor Jack Giroux likes movies. He thinks they're swell.
