Writer-director David Michod rose to fame in 2010 with his debut film "Animal Kingdom," the critically-acclaimed Australian crime drama.
His new film "The Rover," his first in four years, is set in a futuristic and lawless Australian outback, 10 years after a global economic collapse.
In the film, a group of thieves steals a car belonging to a ruthless drifter named Eric, played by Guy Pearce. Singularly focused on getting his car back by any means possible, Eric takes one of the thieves' brothers hostage — a troubled young man named Rey, played by Robert Pattinson.
David Michod joins Take Two to talk about the inspiration behind the gritty, futuristic road movie "The Rover."
