Eric Red, writer/director of 100 FEET, tells:

Michael has amazing ideas for the supernatural character of the spirit and I think it will be a startling change of pace for him, channeling some of the classic Asian ghost story movies in his performance. You will be blown away by the performance Michael gives in “100 FEET.” In terms of his generating powerful emotion and presence without words, it far surpasses “BAD MOON.” In fact, I think the Japanese audiences will be particularly attuned what we are going after with his Ghost character because the great tradition of “JU-ON” and “RINGU.”
Famke is exceptional in the film, beautiful but playing a real, vulnerable, complex woman. The actress was unafraid not to look pretty when her character was going through hell, which only makes her more beautiful in the manner of actresses like Ms. Moreau. She and Michael have some amazing scenes together at the end.
I’m getting ready to start cutting the film, and the stuff we shot is terrific so I’m sure it will come together well. Michael’s the coolest guy to work with and I’ll put a role for Michael in every film I do. It’s going to be a lot of fun! I certainly will cast Michael as a good guy, hopefully next time. But I must say as an actor he really likes playing edgy and darker characters, so he hasn’t minded!

  5. Hi Michael,
    Today, a chilly, rainy Saturday morning, was the perfect time to watch Blood Rayne II Deliverance, and there was never a dull moment, and you, being the strong, silent, good guy were always there when needed! Great job, I really enjoyed wild west plot and the Vancouver scenery was wonderful. Thanks
