Our hunt is just about more than for the Australian premiere of ‘The Hunter’.

Sydney might not be home to the Tasmanian Satan, but it really is hard to argue with the option of Dendy Opera Quays becoming the location for tonight’s Aussie premiere.

Willem Dafoe was most generous in his time with Australian push.

Defoe portrays a mercenary on the trail of the now extinct Tasmanian Tiger.

&quotIt’s real,&quot Dafoe concedes in his immediately recognisable, gravelly voice in excess of the mobile phone from his residence in Rome. &quotAnd that’s not a poor issue.&quot

The actor was wrapt to play the direct part of Martin in The Hunter, dependent on Julia Leigh’s acclaimed novel of the same title.

The climbing star actor informed our buddies at News Restricted &quotFirst of all I didn’t know it was freezing. But the fact that we had been heading to shoot in Tasmania was extremely essential. Obviously you experienced this really excellent tale set from this epic backdrop and that appealed to me not only for the adventure individually but it really is also good to uncover a movie that can do the things motion pictures do very best, some thing that tv can not do for case in point.

&quotI appreciated the simple fact that it was the central character with a slow transformation and that you acquired to invest a whole lot of time with him in the bush.&quot

&quotThe landscape is extremely challenging and the weather conditions is extremely challenging but it genuinely rooted what we were doing. One particular working day it would be lovely and sunny and the subsequent working day it would be snowing and freezing cold. And button grass – until you have walked through a discipline of button grass you have no notion how hard it is.&quot

Dafoe suggested he loves to journey the world to make movement photos, considering that exposure to diverse places and new items will help tends to make actors &quotreconsider your situation and the problem of the world&quot. He loved that Tasmania was so faraway from the films company and was as &quota magical place to movie&quot.

&quotYou can truly concentrate on what you are performing and the more you get away from the globe, then that becomes the only entire world,&quot he suggests. &quotBecause it is so considerably away from everything it has a special charm.&quot

The Hunter also stars Frances O’Connor and Sam Neill, with whom Dafoe has worked just before.

Be confident to observe out for the ongoing wrestle amongst loggers and tree huggers.

Dafoe has labored with some enormous names in the modern period of motion picture creating. Try out on for size David Lynch (Wild At Coronary heart), Martin Scorsese (The Last Temptation of Christ), Oliver Stone (Platoon) and Sam Raimi (Spider-Man). The Hunter was directed by Daniel Nettheim, in his 1st attribute, but Dafoe says he loved the chance to lend his considerable expertise.

&quotLet’s face it,&quot he suggests, &quotMartin Scorsese and David Lynch experienced to commence somewhere. Also you are afforded a sense of collaboration. It is often tough to adapt a extremely sturdy piece of literature and considering that you spend so significantly time with this character it was important to genuinely match him to me.

&quotSo there was plenty of back again and forth and working to make it a excellent in shape. After I fulfilled Daniel I knew he was quite bright and realized he was quite open to operating with me in that way.&quot

Tasmania might be residence for his present flick, but following cease is Mars for the increasing star, thanks to Disney. Dafoe will play Tars Tarkas, a 6-limbed, eco-friendly Martian warrior.

For now, its apparent that Dafoe has discovered his area in the movement photo universe, and insiders tip he is an actor predicted to go a long way, with his identify up for some Hollywood awards later this 12 months.

The Hunter opens Australia on Thursday.
