Interview: Eddie Izzard and Steve Barron on Treasure Island

[thanks Jean!]

The British comedy star and actor, along with director Steve Barron, were in Cannes to promote Treasure Island, the RHI-produced film whose partners include Sky, who will air the feature in the UK this Christmas.

Izzard plays Long John Silver, but guarantees no “arrrr”s or “Jim lad”s: this is a gritty, realistic and muscular rendition of the classic tale. “We wanted this punk element”, said the star.
