Eight For Silver, the philosophical take on the werewolf mythos by acclaimed auteur Sean Ellis, had its world premiere at Sundance this weekend. The arthouse horror film stars Boyd Holbrook (Quibi’s The Fugitive) as John McBride, a hunter who is roped into the troubles of the Laurent family when he tries to discover what happened to their young son.
His mission becomes intertwined with a secret the family patriarch, Seamus (Alastair Pierce of Rogue One), is fighting to keep. As John uncovers more of the human horrors that preceded the superhuman ones, neither he nor the family he’s protecting will ever be the same.
Holbrook spoke to Screen Rant about the research he did to understand his character, the joy he felt at working with a director like Ellis, and how his own directing experience informed his performance.
He also talked about doing indie movies and his casting as The Corinthian in The Sandman. More below:
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 29 (UPI) — Boyd Holbrook has been in big Hollywood movies like Gone Girl, Logan and The Predator. However, Holbrook said his new film that premieres at the Sundance Film Festival, Eight for Silver, is the kind of independent movie he loves to make.
“It was just a more intimate experience that I do have to say I’m a sucker for,” Holbrook told UPI in a phone interview.
Eight for Silver is a monster movie set in the 1800s. Holbrook plays John McBride, a pathologist who visits a British village and agrees to help the Laurent family find a missing child. What the Laurents assume was a wolf attack, McBride knows actually was the manifestation of a gypsy curse.
Holbrook said he was impressed that Sean Ellis wrote, directed and produced the film. The cast and crew — including Alistair Petrie and Kelly Reilly as Seamus and Isabelle Laurent — lived close together for seven weeks at the film’s central France location.
Neil Gaiman’s DC comic book series is finally getting an adaptation, and Boyd will play “an escaped nightmare who wishes to taste all that the world has in store.” More below:
