‘Alexander’ failure almost caused Colin Farrell to quit Hollywood


Colin Farrell in "Alexander"

Dubliner, and former bad-boy, Colin Farrell, has admitted that he considered quitting his acting career after his movie “Alexander” flopped.
He said that he was so embarrassed that he had played the main role that he was ashamed to show his face in public. He revealed that when the movie was released even when he went out for a packet cigarettes he felt “the need to apologize to the guy behind the counter".
Thankfully the brilliant Martin McDonagh’s “In Bruge” movie was his next project and it was a massive success, which restored his confidence.
Currently there are rumors that Farrell will star in a reboot of the 1990 sci-fi action flick, “Total Recall”. This week Farrell told, British newspaper, the Daily Telegraph, that he is still enthralled with big productions.
He said “I’d like to make big films and small films, mainly because I’m a massive fan of film…The idea of doing an Indiana Jones, or even an Inception – I love the grandiosity, how sweepingly entertaining films can be.”
