Eric Bana - Eric Bana To Play Real-life Tough Cop

Subscribe to Eric Bana alerts

Actor Eric Bana will be living out his childhood fantasies in his next film when he plays a tough police detective.

The Australian star has already shot the film, in which he portrays real-life Bronx cop Ralph Satchi in Beware the Night - and he got the chance to hang out with the man he's playing.

He tells Wenn, "It was an amazing experience this past summer, shooting at night in the Bronx.

"It's my first experience working in the horror genre. I play a real person, Ralph Satchi, a tough as nails detective in the 46th Precinct of the Bronx. Through a series of investigations, he discovers demonic elements to some of these cases. I think it will be extremely scary coming out next summer.

"I got my Bronx on and I loved it. I had the real Ralph there everyday and got to know him well. It was my first time playing a cop so I was living out some childhood fantasies."
