From writer/director Quentin Dupieux (Rubber, Wrong), Wrong Cops chronicles a group of cops behaving badly, who are looking to dispose of a body that one of them accidentally shot. This bizarrely hilarious ensemble comedy features an eclectic cast that includes Mark Burnham, Steve Little, Eric Wareheim, Arden Myrin, Eric Judor, Ray Wise, Grace Zabriskie and Marilyn Manson.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, filmmaker Quentin Dupieux talked about how he had the idea for Wrong Cops while watching Mark Burnham play his role in Wrong, why he thought there was enough there to develop a full movie around his character, how Marilyn Manson personally reached out to him, as a fan of his films, why he created this particular character for him, that he prefers to do fast-paced shoots with minimal lighting so that he doesn’t have to stop for set-ups, how he approaches working with actors, and how he enjoys having a group of really cool and talented actors that follow him from project to project. He also talked about the secret project that he’s since done with Marilyn Manson, that showed him what a strong actor he is. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
