Sharlto Copley Talks A-Team, Men In Black 3, Working With Neill Blomkamp Again And Getting Behind The Camera To Make His Own Film

In order to promote the DVD and Blu-ray release of The A-Team in the UK this week, I got to sit down with Sharlto Copley and have a chat about that film, and his other projects.

In the video below I ask about:

  • What shape The A-Team was in when he came on board
  • What was appealing about the project to him
  • The tone of the show vs. the tone of the movie
  • His decision to play Murdock in the style of the show and not reinvent the role
  • The differences between how he played the character and how it was written
  • Representations of characters with mental health problems
  • How it feels for him to now be in front of the camera, and no longer behind it
  • Does he want to get back behind the camera and make another film himself?
  • Will he or won’t he sign on to Men in Black 3?
  • His working relationship with Neill Blomkamp and their possible future collaboration
  • What’s really good and exciting in South African cinema today?

And like every good interviewee, he gives a lot more than he was asked for. Enjoy.
