Dan talks to The Independent about The Cripple of Inishmaan, Horns, and The F Word
Dan recently spoke to Jill Lawless of The Independent about his upcoming play, and his films The F Word and Horns.
Speaking about Cripple and the play’s writer, Martin McDonagh, Dan said, “He walks that line between tragedy and comedy so brilliantly. I think one of the hilarious things about this play is, by our standards today, how politically incorrect it is.”
Dan is currently writing a screenplay, and told Lawless that, “it’s just so dark, and I think it’s funny, but I’m not sure if anybody else ever would. I aspire to be a poor man’s Martin McDonagh.”
Dan says that his romantic comedy The F Word is “very funny, very sweet but also very smart,” and that whilst he doesn’t want to say he’s playing himself, he does play a character that’s a “fairly high-anxiety, slight hyperactive guy.”
He describes Horns as “a love story, it’s a revenge movie, it’s a horror movie in parts — it’s going to be crazy.”
