This week, Tom Hiddleston talks to The Hollywood Reporter, while Elizabeth Debicki discusses The Night Manager. Plus, Stephen Garrett shares what he thought of Corky’s demise. Read on for more:
• The Hollywood Reporter speaks with Tom Hiddleston, who calls The Night Manager “the most compelling piece of writing… [Pine] was my age, he had an elegant and diplomatic exterior, and behind that he was on fire.”
• Interviewed by Net-a-Porter, Elizabeth Debicki says, “I’m drawn to complex characters; women with a juicy character journey. When I read The Night Manager script, a madness took hold – I had to be part of it.”
• Stephen Garrett shares with Yahoo TV that Corky’s death was painful: “As monstrous, in a way, that Corky is, he’s also completely lovable. A world without Corky seemed a lesser, diminished place.”
• Lauding The Night Manager, Deadline talks to Susanne Bier, who describes Pine as “a deeply romantic character but a closed human being, and in the course of becoming a real spy he then becomes an actual human being as well.”
• The Atlantic says Susanne Bier’s work “makes a case for why Hollywood should poach her immediately, taking the necessary components of spy movies—countless languorous shots of exotic locales, high-level corruption, monstrously charming villains, an ethically ambiguous hero—and forming them into something even better.”
• Deadline reports that Amazon Prime Video will be the exclusive subscription streaming service for The Night Manager in the U.S., the UK and Japan starting later this year.
