Writer/director Finn Taylor has just wrapped production on a film based on the dubious awards. The movie features Joseph Fiennes as a forensic detective who works with an insurance investigator (Winona Ryder) to investigate possible Darwin Award winners.
The film includes scenes based on real-life award winners. David Arquette plays one such winner and talked to me briefly about his role while at the Hollywood Premiere of "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang:"
David Arquette on Working on "The Darwin Awards:" "Im really excited about that. I love Finn Taylor and it was a great opportunity to work with him again. We had a great time."
David Arquette's Part in "The Darwin Awards:" "Im one of the Darwin award [winners]. I get a good award, so yeah. Its really fun to see. Im the guy who I dont want to really ruin it...Im one of the guys from in the book. I strap a rocket onto my car (laughing)."
David Arquette on Working with Writer/Director Finn Taylor: " 'Dream with the Fishes' is pretty much my favorite film that Ive ever been a part of. I just love Finn, love his heart, love the films that he makes. Hes really like heart and soul the real deal. Just a great person and a great artist.
I dont know. Hes just a special person. If I was a plumber and I met him, Id love him. He's just a great person. Just to be able to work with really nice people you like and love and respect, thats [important]. And hes also got an incredible mind."
