And by actors, he meantsTom Hardy and Joel Edgerton, two A-list actors who present themselves in consistently excellent performances nowadays.
“More than any movie I’ve ever made, I have a weird…there’s an amazing following of rabid fans, more than anything I’ve ever done. And I’d say that’s probably my most personal movie. So I’m really grateful and, y’know, maybe we’ll do another one!” O’Connor said.
Warrior gained good critical acclaim, with much of the praise being targeted at the dramatic performances from the main cast. Nick Nolte was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Supporting Actor in his own right.
