Edgar Ramirez calls the experience of working on the Screen Gems supernatural thriller Deliver Us From Evil both liberating and beautiful, two descriptive terms that seem unusual when describing playing a priest who performs exorcisms. On the red carpet with his Deliver Us From Evil director Scott Derrickson and co-stars Eric Bana, Olivia Munn, and Joel McHale, Ramirez explained how he felt about being a part of the film based on NY police officer Ralph Sarchie’s book.
Deliver Us From Evil opens in theaters on July 2, 2014.
Edgar Ramirez Interview
What kind of research did you do to get into the role?
Edgar Ramirez: “Well this character is based on a combination of two characters – a Catholic Bishop and a Catholic priest that helped Ralph Sarchie through the investigation and the solving of the cases upon which the movie is based. Regardless of how real or not the character is, it is always a reinterpretation. You don’t imitate life when you portray a character; you create something new. Of course there are certain aspects that you need to respect, but then you have to let go and let your director’s and writer’s imagination just fly. That’s what we did.”
