Rosamund Pike in awe with Jose Padilha s passion
Los Angeles March 13 (IANS) Actress Rosamund Pike was drawn towards "7 Days in Entebbe" by the prospect of working with director Jose Padilha.
"When I met Jose I saw his passion for the project. It was clear from the beginning that he didn t want to make an easy film " Pike said.
"He didn t want to give the audience the standard heroes and villains they ve seen before " she added.
"7 Days in Entebbe" is inspired by true events and revolves around the story of Operation Entebbe a 1976 counter-terrorist hostage-rescue operation. Pike plays role of a hijacker along with Daniel Bruhl.
On her role she said: "The script really takes you inside the minds of the hijackers. In most films terrorists tend to be such unknown and personality-free figures. So it s quite interesting to get to know what s driving them in this story."
Anil Dhirubhai Ambani-led Reliance Entertainment s "7 Days in Entebbe" will release in India on Friday.
