After reading the supercharged screenplay and having a productive 2-hour conference call with Screenwriter/Producer Daryl Brooks and Screenwriter/Producer Stephen Martino, the feeling was mutual about working together.
Wickham talks about the next film he will be directing, “I have to be honest. After seeing the title of the project, I had a preconceived notion of that the story was going to be focused on the violence and maybe even torture of advanced interrogation methods. But that was not the case.
Writers Daryl Brooks and Stephen Martino have constructed a controversial story that is incredibly topical in our modern day society and asks the potent question of “What if” our country was put in a pressure-cooker situation of the moral dilemma this story raises.
How far would one go to save innocent lives if they knew a catastrophic event was in the works? What would high-ranking governmental officials choose to do to protect their people?
The script is a lot more thoughtful and subverted than I assumed and I love the opportunity to put these characters into the frying pan of sorts, to create as much drama and suspense as possible.
Like the incredibly successful shows The Walking Dead and Homeland, this story is all about the people. Plus this project will give me the chance to explore another genre and I undoubtedly look forward to making the movie even more cinematically powerful with my skills as a filmmaker.
The best analogy I’d give for Enhanced Interrogation would be a cross between Homeland and 12 Angry Men.“
