THE MOVIE: Daltry Calhoun

Johnny Knoxville • Juliette Lewis • Elizabeth Banks • Sophie Traub
DIRECTOR: Katrina Holden Bronson

Quentin Tarantino, Johnny Knoxville and Katrina Holden Bronson on set THE CONCEPT:
Successful soil company owner Daltry Calhoun (Knoxville) is presented by ex-girlfriend May (Banks) with their teenage daughter, whom he hasn’t seen for years. But his business is about to fail, and May is dying, wanting him to be a father to his child. Through all of this a smitten local shopkeeper Flora does all she can to help...

This is the second movie directed by Katrina Holden Bronson, the daughter of actor Charles Bronson.

U.S. RELEASE: September 25 2005, Nationwide • Rated: PG-13


“I think writing the material, the actor trusts you a little bit more. Juliette, being the most experienced person on the set, said to me, ‘I always trust my director, and even more so if they’ve written the material.’ She said it in passing, and that fortified me so much. It was very intimidating with the cast, but I couldn’t let them know it was intimidating.”

JOHNNY KNOXVILLE on working with Katrina:
“Any concerns I think on my part were laid aside after my first meeting with her. It’s such a beautiful script, and she had it all laid out in her head, and she laid it out for me, and she was so passionate about it, plus she had Quentin Tarantino on board [as Executive Producer], but even without Quentin she had it all nailed down, and I was just happy to be on board.”

“The script is written so well, it is so vibrant and the characters are so full, so I put my energy and what I had to offer into it. I knew the colors I wanted to instill in her, because obviously the whole town judges her. For me it’s a really soft, gentle woman, and I love this aspect and I always look for something I’ve never played before.”

“Quentin came on the set for one visit – I think he meant to be there for a few days, but I gave him some moonshine after the first day and I didn’t see him again for a couple of days.”

“Quentin left us alone for the first couple of weeks, which was very nice because we had our own rhythm and made our own family. When he did visit the set, Johnny gave him a little welcome gift of moonshine, and he went MIA. He’ll proudly tell you he had a life-changing, mystical experience brought on by moonshine at the Jamison Inn in Columbia, Tennessee.”

“When Quentin wasn’t on set I think he really trusted Katrina to make the movie she was going to make. She was running the show.”

KNOXVILLE on working with Lewis:
“I’m a huge fan of Juliette’s and to work with her meant a lot. I didn’t [play any practical jokes on her] I’m scared to death of her. She’d kill me. I just took my hat off and said Ma’am.”

LEWIS on working with Knoxville:
“I thought this was such a good movie for him, a good role, because he’s not only the lead of the movie and he’s carrying the story, but it’s real complex and funny.”
