Ethan Hawke continues to prove that no genre is without its merits and no story too daunting as he takes on roles as wildly different as the thrillers of Sinister and The Purge to the dramatic romance of Before Midnight.  Starting this Friday, Hawke will take his place behind the wheel of a Ford Shelby Super Snake in an attempt to rescue his character’s wife in Courtney Solomon’s high-speed thriller, Getaway.

During a recent press day for the film, we were able to talk to Hawke in a one-on-one interview that ranged from his training and experience driving the suped-up hot rod in Getaway, his reaction on the reception of Before Midnight, and his reflection on his career so far.  Hawke also talked a bit about his upcoming roles, including completing his work with director Richard Linklater on their untitled 12-year project, starring in Michael Almereyda’s Cymbeline, Michael and Peter Spierig’s Predestination and even a possible reunion with writer-director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca).  Hit the jump for the full interview.

Ethan Hawke to Star in PREDESTINATION for The Spierig Brothers

Ethan Hawke is set to reteam with his Daybreakers directors The Spierig Brothers, time-travel actioner Predestination. Based on the 1959 Robert Heinlein short story “All You Zombies,” this one concerns a covert temporal manipulation agency that’s tasked with jumping into the past to prevent/facilitate certain key events. Hawke will play an agent who must take highly inventive action to ensure his very existence. The original Heinlein story is a witty, mind-bending temporal-paradox that plays heavily with perspective. It’s unclear at this point exactly how closely the film will follow it; hopefully, the answer is: to the letter. Because, without spoiling anything, this one’s got a doozy of a last-act reveal. Hit the jump for more.
