"Originally the impetus for me was the story of two totally strangers who meet in a bar - says writer Richard Shepard. - Bars in hotels have the property that there can tell you about afford the full truth, knowing that you'll never see a man who told her. This is an excellent locale for a good story. "

However, Shepard acknowledged that his main idea was to "reshape" a pattern killer, as was done in the film "sexy beast".

"Film" sexy beast "has strong influence on me. In it the genre of the one most recent robbery was invented anew by the fact that the principal was not an act, and the characters. After seeing this film, I thought: "Maybe you can and tell the story of the killer, avoiding stereotypes of the genre - says Shepard. - While there is action, suspense and, hopefully, a lot of dramatic tension that is associated with murder, while the film is essentially a comedy. And Comedy good ".
Its name to "The Matador" is obliged to biographies of former hitman Julian Noble.

"Creating such films is not easy - says producer and actor Pierce Brosnan, who plays Julian Noble - the killer, ready to leave the game. - We must maintain a balance, it is necessary that the film was real, dramatic, truthful and at the same time to do it all too obvious. Richard Shepard fine with that right, and when the script is good, we can only follow the words, bring a little imagination and shoot everything as simple as possible. "

"This kind of psychological drama about two very dissimilar people, who by chance found themselves in a very similar point in their lives - says producer Bryan Furst. - They met by chance in this critical moment, and finally a 180-degree turn each other's lives. They are very dissimilar and out of very different backgrounds, but because of their vulnerability at this time they are attracted to each other, and they eventually help each other overcome the crisis of fun and exciting way. "

toit note that the original script was not written for Brosnan. Agent Shepard just sent the script to Brosnan's company as a model for his writing abilities. "But the very next day I call Pierce says he wants to produce a movie and play a major role in it" - says Shepard.
