Pollack: 'My Movie Needs More Sex And Violence'

Director SYDNEY POLLACK fears his forthcoming movie THE INTERPRETER will be a box office flop - because it doesn't feature enough sex scenes and fight sequences to entertain fickle cinema-goers.

The film-maker's thriller stars SEAN PENN as an FBI agent who is assigned to protect NICOLE KIDMAN's interpreter character, who overhears a United Nations assassination plot.

But Pollack is concerned the complex storyline is not enough to sustain the audience's attention, because they are accustomed to fast-paced movies with frequent nudity and violence.

He says, "Nowadays, if you don't get the gun out fast, the clothes off quickly and have something happening all the time, you can't hold people's attention."
