Unthinkable (December 2009)

Michael will play a Muslim terrorist in the new Samuel L. Jackson thriller “Unthinkable” along with Carrie-Ann Moss (The Matrix) and Brandon Routh.  The film is a gripping, high-action drama that looks at torture, terrorism, black-ops and a nuclear threat.  The story centers on a major threat to the United States when the locations of three nuclear devices are shrouded in secrecy by a single terrorist (Michael). With only two days before they are deployed, a black-ops interrogator and a female FBI agent have to decide how far they will go to find them.  A psychological thriller centered around a black-ops interrogator (Samuel Jackson) and an FBI agent who press a suspect terrorist (Michael Sheen) into divulging the location of three nuclear weapons sets to detonate in the U.S. Michael Sheen struggled to enjoy playing a terrorist in Gregor Jordan's Unthinkable. Bang Showbiz quotes the Welsh actor as saying: "Playing a terrorist is absolutely no fun at all. It's bad, completely uncomfortable, and it's a tough shoot, but it's very enjoyable to be working with the director, Gregor Jordan, and a really great script, so I'm excited about how it's going to turn out."

Despite his discomfort, Sheen insisted that he is pleased that the role has given him the opportunity to master an American accent. "I'm really enjoying that. It's sort of the first proper full-on American character I've played," he said.

"Well, I think your successes depend on your failures. In a way, whether something succeeds or fails doesn't matter at all--the point is that you strive, that you take risks, and that you challenge yourself. By doing so, inevitably some of those risks are going to pay off, and some of them are going to turn into what would be considered failures. But when you look back it's very hard to disentangle the successes from the failures. It's all a process." (Interview with Emily Mortimer, 1 July 2007)

“I think inevitably doors have opened in terms of interest,” he says in his gentle Welsh lilt. “It is exciting. But I can’t imagine doing any better work than I’ve been doing the last few years, so I don’t really care as long as I can work on things like I have been doing. I don’t really care whether it’s seen by 10 people or a hundred people in that respect, it’s the quality of the work that’s important.”  2006 Interview Caroline Bishop, The London Theatre Guide
