The Burnt Orange Heresy (in Theaters March 6), the latest film from director Giuseppe Capotondi, starring Claes Bang, Elizabeth Debicki, Donald Sutherland and Mick Jagger. The plot centers on a charming art dealer that’s hired to steal a rare painting from one of the most famous painters of all time.
I had a chance to speak to Bang and Capotondi at the premiere of the film in Los Angeles. Bang spoke about filming his sex scene with Debicki and Capotondi addressed the impact of coronavirus is having on the film industry. Check out the interviews below.
Claes was awesome to chat with. Just completely transparent and a straight shooter. I really appreciate those qualities. I thought he had great chemistry with Elizabeth and their sex scene was intense. It was interesting to hear him talk about filming that scene and how it wasn’t glamorous at all. Funniest part was hearing him talk about how he can’t wait to get rid of his beard. The man sounds and looks like Pierce Brosnan.
Giuseppe seemed to be in a good mood. He strikes me as pretty easy going. I asked him about coronavirus and how as a filmmaker that might impact him with projects and travels. It was interesting to find out he invited Claes and Elizabeth for lunch to build familiarity between them. Looks like it worked.
