INTERVIEW: MALCOLM MCDOWELL
I had the incredible opportunity of a sit-down Chat with Screen Legend Malcolm McDowell, who has entertained audiences for an incredible span of five decades. With a Résumé which has seen extremes with controversial Films like Caligula and Clockwork Orange on on end of it, and on the other end his recognizable voicework in Blockbusters like Kung Fu Panda and Bolt, McDowell has a rare gift that is universal in its appeal. Critics, Moviegoers and Kids adore him.
took a break from filming forthcoming ABC Family
Television Movie Home Alone 5
starring promising Child Actor Christian Martyn
in Winnipeg, to promote Canadian-based Dark House Films
Board Horror, The Unleashed.
The Film screened last night at The Royal
in Little Italy,
with him treating the audience to a quick introduction
Although he isn’t seen on-screen, McDowell
‘s distinctive voice can be heard as he narrates, having
recorded his parts back in Los Angeles via a Phone Patch. Soon he will be teaming again with that Production Company on another title in The Monster Butler,
as the “north of $6-million” Horror is slated to begin production this June in Scotland and McDowell
couldn’t be more thrilled, taking on the Lead Role. The Father of five tells me that often when choosing roles now, he thinks of his own Kids. And soon he’ll be home again with them as Home Alone 5
– which sees him starring as an Art Thief looking to reclaim a painting by a Relative, of a Relative – is due to wrap in a couple weeks.
The Actor has many fond memories of Toronto having filmed many a Movie here in recent years, including Antiviral and also Silent Hill: Revelation 3-D. Although he couldn’t comment on specifics for the latter, he did state “It’s a great scene. I’m not going to tell you too much and spoil it – the Producers are going to kill me – but it’s really fantastic, it’s going to be a great one.”. He adds, “I believe this is my first time being seen in 3-D.”.
