Pierce Brosnan, who delivered an excellent performance last year in The Foreigner, plays a detective who’s investigating the disappearance of a female college student in Spinning Man. Guy Pearce is the respected college professor whose own relationships with his students places him as a primary suspect, with Minnie Driver co-starring as the professor’s understandably suspicious wife. Simon Kaijser directs the thriller.
Getting involved as well as doing the project was a straightforward process for Brosnan. I met with Simon before we started filming and had a lovely lunch,” said Brosnan. “I didn’t have any great deep, meaningful questions for him. (With) the character it was fairly evident what had to be done on the page and consequently when we had to do the scenes we’d rehearse and then shoot. Two, three takes at most.”
Pierce Brosnan elaborates on why he joined Spinning Man, a feature he describe as “extremely well written.”
Spinning Man hits select theaters and On Demand April 6.
