Peter Facinelli on “Breaking Dawn” and His Upcoming Film “Loosies”Mar 28th, 2011 | By Stefanie | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News
Peter tweeted about a new interview he did with Celebuzz where he talks about his upcoming film, Loosies, which he wrote, directed and produced, and of course, there’s a bit of Breaking Dawn talk in there as well!
Tell us a little bit about your character in Loosies.
I play a pickpocket in New York who he lives with his mom [laughs] and his mom thinks he works on Wall Street. So, every day he walks out of the house in a suit and tie and he walks down to the subway and that’s his office and he just pickpockets the people all day. He’s a pickpocket because he’s in debt, his father left him with $500,000 in gambling debts, so he has to pay off the person that his father was indebted to which is Vincent Gallo‘s character so it kind of took his life into a whole different direction.
He lives this fast, loose kind of Steve McQueen kind of lifestyle and one day he gets tapped on the shoulder and this girl that he had a one night stand with tells him that she’s pregnant and his whole world just kind of collapses around him because he has to grow up and take responsibility for something, so it’s a fun story (…)
You mentioned that you are in the middle of shooting Breaking Dawn, is it a bittersweet feeling to know that the Twilight Saga is coming to a close?
Yeah. I mean, we’re so busy working that I don’t think that we’ve wrapped our heads around the fact that it’s ending soon. We still have another month to go so right now we’re just knee-deep in the work of it. I haven’t really given much thought to it being over. Even when it’s over, the films will be coming out over the next two years so I’ll still see everybody.
The photo above is a still from Loosies, to see another still and to check out the rest of the interview head over to Celebuzz. I hope this movie gets picked up, it sounds pretty interesting!
