Film industry needs more original material: Andrew Garfield

Los Angeles, Nov 6 (IANS) Actor Andrew Garfield says the film industry needs more original material.

The 33-year-old, who stars as Desmond Doss in actor-filmmaker Mel Gibson’s recently released film “Hacksaw Ridge”, says that the key to get Gibson to create more movies is to come up with new content that “hits deep into the human condition”, reports

“I think Mel is so discerning in the stories that he wants to tell. He’s obviously a devoted filmmaker, and if he’s going to go to work on something for two to three years, it’s got to have the emotional capacity and possibility that a story like Desmond Doss’s story has,” Garfiled told

“So I just think we need more original material that actually hits deep into the human condition and offers something to an audience that goes beyond popcorn munching and numbness. He wants to wake an audience up and make them feel themselves, and feel grateful for the lives they’re living,” he added.
