With writing credits like X-Men and Watchmen to his name, it can be easy to overlook the fact that David Hayter has also kept quite busy in the acting and voice acting realms as well. He’s still pushing forward as a writer/director and has his latest directorial endeavor, Wolves, due in the fall, but Hayter also abides by one very important acting rule; if someone asks him to take a part, he’s going to do it, and that’s how Devil’s Mile came up.
Hayter steps in as Toby, a henchman of sorts to an evil crime boss named Mr. Arkadi who orders him and his cohorts, Cally (Maria del Mar) and Jacinta (Casey Hudecki), to kidnap two girls. They manage to get them, but delivering them becomes the problem due to the rather sinister nature of the route home. With Devil’s Mile hitting DVD and VOD on August 12th, Hayter got on the phone with Collider to talk about making this movie, a new sci-fi franchise he’s developing, his old Black Widow script and more. Hit the jump to check it out, but be aware, there are some plot spoilers in this interview.
