In The Works: 'Rampart' Pair Harrelson and Moverman Hint at Manhattan Murder Mystery

Thompson on Hollywood By Sophia Savage | Thompson on Hollywood January 30, 2012 at 2:36PM

Making "Rampart," Woody Harrelson's second collaboration with director Oren Moverman after his Oscar-nominated "The Messenger," wasn't exactly a smooth ride. Harrelson tells Screen Daily that after seeing the first cut of the film, he hated it (despite thinking it was "the best script I had ever read" and "the best part I had ever been offered"); "I thought Oren had lost his vision. I didn’t want to go to Toronto and do interviews.” He was back on board after a subsequent cut. Harrelson says of becoming rogue cop Dave Brown, whose primary emotion is paranoia, "I invited that fucker in and it’s still wreaking havoc.”

Making "Rampart," Woody Harrelson's second collaboration with director Oren Moverman after his Oscar-nominated "The Messenger," wasn't exactly a smooth ride. Harrelson tells Screen Daily that after seeing the first cut of the film, he hated it (despite thinking it was "the best script I had ever read" and "the best part I had ever been offered"); "I thought Oren had lost his vision. I didn’t want to go to Toronto and do interviews.” He was back on board after a subsequent cut. Harrelson says of becoming rogue cop Dave Brown, whose primary emotion is paranoia, "I invited that fucker in and it’s still wreaking havoc.”

Despite Harrelson's lack of recognition for his Oscar-worthy performance in "Rampart" (which has a limited release starting February 10, following November's awards qualifying run), he is ready to team with Moverman again. Harrelson says, “[Moverman] said three words, ‘Manhattan. Murder. Mystery.’” Harrelson's answer: “I’m in.”

Harrelson will also appear in "The Hunger Games" this March, Martin McDonagh's "Seven Psychopaths" and Louis Leterrier's "Now You See Me" (January 2013).
