Do you want to be in Knights of the Moon with me?’ And I thought, ‘Yes.’ So it happened the right way, ”Hawke said.

He said:
“My films are tough, serious and about big topics, and I feel that strongly Knights of the Moon is going to be like that – it will be entertainment, but also heavy. At the same time, we are so creative with the jokes and with the action. As I keep saying to my wife: I can not believe I’m funny in another language!
