Our Mark Steines sat down with superstar Leonardo DiCaprio to talk about his new suspense thriller ‘Shutter Island,’ and the role which he says, “challenged the hell out of me.“
Calling it the “most intense” role he’s played so far, DiCaprio plays a federal marshal searching for an escaped patient from a hospital for the criminally insane and tells Mark they shot the movie in a former mental ward.
“It was eroded and degraded and it certainly gave a texture to the movie,” he says. “It becomes its own character.“
‘Shutter Island’ marks the fourth collaboration between the actor and director Martin Scorsese and he explains to Mark what makes their bond so unique.
“It’s truly just a trust thing at this point,” DiCaprio says. “I’ve been very fortunate. Thankfully he’s had a role for me in each of these movies.“
