Seven Days in Utopia with Robert Duvall: Interview
“It’s nice to see a film that doesn’t have all the gratuitous sex and violence.”- Robert Duvall on playing Johnny Crawford
Brilliant interview with the great Robert Duvall as he chats with golf-blogger extraordinaire Tony Korologos from ‘Hooked On Golf Blog’ about his latest role in the film ‘Seven Days in Utopia.’ Duvall chats about golf, Tiger Woods, inspiration, sex, drugs, and claims that working with Billy Bob Thornton for an upcoming film was “one of the greatest moments of my career.”
- SEVEN DAYS IN UTOPIA follows the story of Luke Chisolm (Lucas Black), a talented young golfer set on making the pro tour. When his first big shot turns out to be a very public disaster, Luke escapes the pressures of the game and finds himself unexpectedly stranded in Utopia, Texas, home to eccentric rancher Johnny Crawford (Robert Duvall). But Johnny’s more than meets the eye, and his profound ways of looking at life force Luke to question not only his past choices, but his direction for the future.
Based on David L. Cook’s best-selling book Golf’s Sacred Journey: Seven Days at the Links of Utopia, SEVEN DAYS IN UTOPIA also stars Melissa Leo, Deborah Ann Woll, Brian Geraghty, Jerry Ferrera, Joseph Lyle Taylor, KJ Choi and Kathy Baker. The film is directed by Matthew Dean Russell from a script by Cook, Rob Levine, Russell and Sandra Thrift. The film was produced by Mark G. Mathis (Brick, Precious) and Jason M. Berman (The Dry Land).
