"Fire with Fire" director on Vincent D'Onofrio

David Barrett discusses working with action legend Bruce Willis for the cinema release of Fire With Fire -  March 8, 2013


So, tell us a little about Fire With Fire...
Fire With Fire was tough because I had done a lot of second unit on movies, I'd done a lot of second unit action on TV shows, and directed probably 75 TV shows, produced shows, I produced Orphan, I shot second unit on that movie... So to have my first movie be Fire With Fire, where I had had to shoot something in 20 days, was really tough. It was probably just shy of half of what I have to shoot a television show. To have personalities like Bruce Willis, to have a crew that doesn't know each other, to have no standing sets was a very, very difficult shoot, but thank God I had some terrific actors like Rosario Dawson and Josh Duhamel and Vincent D'Onofrio to help pull it off. The script had been around a little while and the tough part about it was really trying to find the right actor for that role, and Josh really fit the bill because he is a guy who is devoid of ego, he is one of the most kind individuals I have ever met. In order for some of the moments or scenarios that were in the script at the very beginning, in order for the audience to go on that right I had to make him as vulnerable and relatable as I could possibly make him or else it just wouldn't work, and I felt like he was the right choice, and he was.

excerpted ...

For me the stand-out performance was Vincent D'Onofrio – I think I've said that right... 
Yes you did, good job! [laughs] I got it wrong a lot of the time.

Vincent D'Onofrio as Hagan in Fire with Fire
 He plays a really harrowing villain and has a really chilling presence to him. But I read there was a time he seemed unlikely to get involved because of scheduling issues?
I wanted him, and he didn't want to do the movie. So, I put pressure on everyone in the biggest way and said “I have to talk to him”, so I got him on the phone and I told him who his character is, from the age of seven years old up until the time the script starts. I went into this big, back story of who his character is and how he was just a kid, and a kid who had hopes of running his father's congregation, and the defining moment that turned him. By the time I was three quarters of the way into my pitch about the character, he said, “I see it. I'm doing your movie. We'll figure out the scheduling, I don't care how, but we're gonna figure it out”. The first take, I mean I had an incredibly tough first two days of the movie as I was having to shoot nine pages those days in six different locations with Bruce Willis. So I got to Vincent and the very first take I looked to the producers and I said, “We have a real movie.” It's important to have a lead, but your villain needs to be credible and relatable and he gave a performance that just... I mean, put it this way, he intimidated everyone in the cast, and I mean everyone. And the crew. He inspired everyone around him.

More on "The Judge"

"The Judge"

Synopsis: Cynical high-priced attorney, Hank Palmer (Robert Downey Jr) must return to his rural roots to defend his estranged father, Judge Joseph Palmer, on a murder charge.  The case forces Hank and the Judge to confront their painful past, and threatens to widen the rift between them.

Begins filming at the end of May in the Boston area.

Vincent's role:  Glen - Hank's older brother, he's a tired-eyed former athlete who has turned a bit soft.  Once a sports star who seemed headed for the pros, Glen was sidelined by a serious injury and now owns a tire and rim store in his home town.  Somewhat under his domineering father's thumb, he's dismayed at the fireworks that result when Hank returns to town to defend their dad against a vehicular homicide charge.  As we later learn, Glen shares some shocking secrets with Hank that largely explain Hank's long-time alienation from his father.
