Bill Moseley on Being the Villain in Samurai-Cowboy-Apocalyptic Film Prisoners of the Ghostland [Exclusive Interview]

Bill Moseley in Prisoners of the Ghostland

Prisoners of the Ghostland will be one of the off-the-wall films from the archives of Nicolas Cage. With Bill Moseley, he didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to be a part of this very unique film from Japanese director Sion Sono.

Here’s the official synopsis of Prisoners of the Ghostland:

In the treacherous frontier city of Samurai Town, a ruthless bank robber (Nicolas Cage) is sprung from jail by wealthy warlord The Governor (Bill Moseley), whose adopted granddaughter Bernice (Sofia Boutella) has gone missing. The Governor offers the prisoner his freedom in exchange for retrieving the runaway. Strapped into a leather suit that will self-destruct within five days, the bandit sets off on a journey to find the young woman—and his own path to redemption.

The rest of the cast includes Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Star Trek Beyond), Nick Cassavetes (Face/Off, The Astronaut’s Wife), Tak Sakaguchi (Samurai School, Versus), and Yuzuka Nakaya (The Forest of Love: Deep Cut). Sion Sono (Love Exposure, Why Don’t You Play in Hell?) directed the film from a script written by Aaron Hendry and Reza Sixo Safai.

LRM Online’s Gig Patta chatted with actor Bill Mosely for taking the role of the villain named The Governor. We also discussed the wackiness blend of multiple genres and taking a short break from the horror movies he usually stars in.

Bill Moseley is one of the most recognizable faces in the horror genre. He burst into the industry playing Chop Top in 1986’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Since then, he starred in many numerous cult classic horror films, including House of 1000 Corpses, Repo! The Genetic Opera, and The Devil’s Rejects. And then he made appearances in plenty more horror films like 1990’s Night of the Living Dead and 2007’s Halloween.

Prisoners of the Ghostland is in select theaters, On Demand and digital today.
