In Deliver Us From Evil, Olivia Munn portrays the wife of Eric Bana, an NYPD officer working the toughest streets in the city.
As seen in the Deliver Us From Evil trailer, Bana’s Sarchie is on the case of an evil that may not be human. The film is based on a true story and as such, Munn sought to bring a reality to it -- one she would have insisted on even if it was fiction.
We caught up with Munn for an exclusive video interview where she let us in on the fact that she even had the script changed to reflect the real life men and women who are the life partners for those who lay their lives on the line every day of the week. She simply didn’t think a woman in her position would say a particular line.
“When I went in to Scott (Derrickson, the director), I said, ‘I don’t want her to be nagging him,'" Munn said. “When you’re the wife of a police officer, you have to understand. There was a point where he came home and she was going to say, ‘Where were you?’ I asked them to take that out. She has to know!”
Munn also admitted that she took inspiration from friends whose husbands are firefighters, cops and in the military -- and sought to bring a tribute to them in her portrayal of Jen.
