Can you please outline your character for us?

Archer is ambiguous. He has an important job and can speak German. He’s looked on favourably by the Germans. He’s a totem for them. Before the war, he caught a serial killer and got the nickname Archer of the Yard. But he is unsure about his role now.

He is not a Nazi, but neither is he willing to join The Resistance. He’s happy to keep his job. He thinks that there has to be law and order or things will fall apart. If he’s not there to do it, then who will? His neighbours see him picked up for work by the SS and are suspicious. I think that’s a really interesting place to start a drama.

He has a young son. It’s very easy for people who don’t have children to resist the Occupation. But once you have a child – which I do in real life – it makes you ask whether you’d stick your neck out, or whether you would make sure your children are safe and hope it all blows over.

Why else do you think Archer is an ambiguous character?

Because nothing is black-and-white in this situation. I played a member of the French Resistance once. To research that I watched a documentary called The Sorrow And The Pity about the Nazi Occupation of France. They banned it in France for many years because it went against the public perception that everyone in the Resistance was heroic, which wasn’t the case.

A lot of Europe at the time was anti-Semitic. And many people who were occupied thought that if the Germans weren’t going to upset their life, they didn’t want to rock the boat. So Archer starts out being cocky, and then the noose tightens and the pressure is ramped up. His journey should make for a very exciting watch.

Can you explain Archer’s relationship with Barbara?

She is a mysterious character. London has become a very drab town. With rationing, everyone is having to make do. Then this glamorous platinum blonde bombshell appears near the scene of the crime. She ingratiates herself with Archer, which he is not unhappy about.

What’s interesting about the relationship is that Archer is not sure what Barbara’s motives are – whether she has genuine affection for him, or whether she is linked with the Americans or Germans.

We finally have a first look of Sam in the very anticipated movie ‘Free Fire’. Directed and written by Ben Wheatley and starring Cillian Murphy, Michael Smiley, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Sam Riley and Enzo Cilenti. Check the first production still in our gallery and read more about the movie below.

The next Ben Wheatley movie, Free Fire, is his first to be set in the US and is likely to be his most visceral and crunching to date. Maybe his most thrilling too, if it lives up to its inspirations and its exec-producer, Martin Scorsese.

Free Fire is set in Boston in 1978. The story, which Wheatley is pitching as a muscular crime flick in the spirit of Melville, Hawks, Scorsese himself and Walter Hill, charts the fallout from a gun-running hook-up orchestrated by Larson in a deserted warehouse. At its centre are two Irishmen (Murphy and Smiley), on a connect with a pair of arms traffickers, Ord (Hammer) and Vernon (Sharlto Copley), but soon wishing they’d given the whole enterprise a wide berth when the bullets start flying. Cue a desperate battle for survival.

“The idea for Free Fire came from my love of hard-boiled crime movies,” Wheatley tells Variety. “The Asphalt Jungle, The Big Sleep,The Killing and The Big Combo through The Driver, Le Samourai andThe French Connection, to the modern cycle of GoodFellas, Casino,Hard Boiled and Reservoir Dogs.”

“It will take you and stick you in the middle of the action,” he elaborates. “I want the film to have the stylish, no-nonsense feel that you get in [Sam] Peckinpah’s The Getaway. It’s a modern ‘70s movie. Muscular, tough and spare.”

Written by Wheatley and Amy Jump, Free Fire will be one of the big sales at Cannes this month. UK and US release dates shouldn’t be too far off – watch this space for more.
