Ahead of his sophomore directorial effort, The Kid, Vincent D’Onofrio (who also co-stars in the movie) sat down with Rotten Tomatoes to talk in detail about the new film. Whether it was the historical context of Pat Garrett’s legacy as a lawman or the small, intricate details he picked up from real-life photos of Billy the Kid, D’Onofrio was willing to go the extra mile for the sake of accuracy. And that all-star cast? D’Onofrio talks about harnessing the poetry of Ethan Hawke and helping Chris Pratt unleash the darkness hidden within him to get performances we haven’t seen from them before. Check out our in-depth interview for more.

The Kid opens in theaters March 8.
