Empire Magazine spoke Sigourney Weaver about her role in The Village and more at last night’s Empire Awards, “I play Alice Hunt who’s a widow – she’s one of a group called The Elders of the village. It’s a kind of a communal village and there’s a group of people who run things very democratically. I’m Joaquin Phoenix’s mother and he plays a very extraordinary, shy young man who’s also very brave. It’s a fabulous story on a lot of levels – not just scary but very interesting. I had nightmares for two weeks just reading it – so I think it’s going to be very scary!” Follow the link for more. M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village hits theaters July 30th and stars Joaquin Phoenix, Sigourney Weaver, Adrien Brody, William Hurt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Judy Greer.
