Interview: Eddie Izzard and Steve Barron on Treasure Island

The British comedy star and actor were in Cannes to promote RHI-produced film Treasure Island

The British comedy star and actor – along with director Steve Barron – was in Cannes to promote Treasure Island, the RHI-produced film whose partners include Sky, who will air the feature in the UK this Christmas.

Izzard plays Long John Silver, but guarantees no “arrrr”s, “Jim lad”s or similar clichés: this is a gritty, realistic and muscular rendition of the classic tale. “We wanted this punk element”, said the star.

The feature also stars Elijah Wood and Donald Sutherland. Watch out for trailer extracts within the interview!
