Meanwhile, Eric Bana spoke with Shock Till You Drop about his experience working on the film while promoting his war drama Lone Survivor.
He said: "That was just incredible. I was again playing a real person, Ralph Saatchi, who was a particularly tough detective from the 46th Precinct in the Bronx, and we shot all through summer doing night shoots in the Bronx. It was an incredible experience. I'm playing a cop for the first time in my life and absolutely loved it and learned and saw things that really were quite challenging. It was a pretty amazing experience and it was great working with Scott–I'm a huge fan of his work. He has an amazing understanding of the genre and a respect for it, and I'm really excited to see that it's been brought forward to a summer release. It's very exciting for us."
When asked about Derrickson's The Exorcism of Emily Rose (which starred Laura Linney, Campbell Scott and Tom Wilkinson) and how it felt more like a drama than a horror film, Bana added: "Yeah, he really understands character and the same with 'Sinister'–Ethan's performance in 'Sinister' is just fantastic–and he's really a fan of character-driven horror cause it means a lot. This is one of the best characters I've ever read and I just jumped in and was obsessed with playing Ralph and it was amazing."
