David Mamet on Redbelt
Posted 05.01.08 by reelz
He of the acid tongue, David Mamet, is turning over a new leaf with Redbelt, his ode to the mixed martial arts starring Chiwetel Ejiofor as a jiujitsu instructor forced into the competitive arena against his will.
Turns out the writer/director responsible for such lines as 'Coffee is for closers' is actually a very polite, nice, teddybear of a guy in person, as I discovered during our Redbelt interview. And he's been studying jiujitsu for years.
Read more about what he has to say in my Interview with Redbelt's David Mamet.
Redbelt opens Friday, May 2, 2008.
