Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges says he likes his upcoming crime drama Hell or High Water a lot because of its long-standing suspense. The 66-year-old Crazy Heart star, who will essay the role of Marcus Hamilton in the film, said the movie is not at all predictable, reported Hello! magazine.
“What I liked about this movie is that it’s not all so cut and dried. You just never can quite figure out who are the so-called good guys and who are the bad guys. “I think there’s a bit of good guy and bad guy in almost everyone in this film. Marcus is a man who not only is underestimated by other people, but I also think he, like a lot of us, underestimates himself,” Bridges said.
Talking about its script, he said, “It’s about these times today as much as the classic theme of the West fading. I guess all times change – that’s a rule – but this movie’s about these specific times and the power of money and banks and what that’s doing to our society.”
Hell or High Water also stars Chris Pine, Ben Foster and Katy Mixon in the main roles. It will hit the US theatres on October 13 this year.
Earlier, Jeff Bridges has announced through a new teaser poster on Twitter that he has joined the cast of the Kingsman sequel – The Golden Circle. “The only Golden Circle I want vexing me is the one my glass leaves behind on the table,” the poster read. Similar one-sheets were used to confirm the casting of Channing Tatum and music legend Elton John, as well as teasing the return of Colin Firth’s Harry Hart.
