  1. Director: Gus Van Sant

    Director Gus Van Sant speaks about shooting in Death Valley and the state of American independent film. The most interesting part for Viggo fans comes in the last few paragraphs, where he discusses Psycho: "When we were shooting it, Viggo Mortensen and I were talking about the next one. We were going to do a black Psycho, a punk-rock Psycho... Viggo knows all the punk rockers, so he had some ideas about how to pull it off."
  2. Leave it to Viggo

    Viggo Mortensen speaks briefly about how he chooses his film roles, and on recreating Psycho. Excerpt: "It was a good blueprint," he says regarding Van Sant's decision to be faithful to the original 1960 thriller in script, score, and marketing. "If you're going to do a remake of a movie, this is the one to do it with because the formula works so well."
