Michael Douglas’ Pushing Gun-Control Position in ‘Beyond the Reach’

“I’m a strong advocate of gun control and I’m always conscious of how it’s going to be perceived.”

In “Beyond the Reach, ” Michael Douglas’ latest film, which opened Friday, he plays a rich man who shoots a man by accident on a hunting trip in the Mojave Desert, and then tries to murder his guide (Jeremy Irvine) to cover up the first killing.

“If there was going to be any redeeming value to this movie other than [being an] exciting thriller, ” Douglas told the NY Daily News, “it would be pointing out the idealism of the young man…versus the corruption of somebody who’s basically bribing everybody left and right just to get the biggest (hunting trophy) that he can.”

Douglas is one of the producers of “Beyond the Reach.”

“I’m a strong advocate of gun control and I’m always conscious of how it’s going to be perceived, ” Douglas told the News. “My thing has always been, you’ve got to make the drama of the movie work first.

“In (the 1979 thriller) ‘The China Syndrome, ’ I just got involved with a monster movie — the monster being this nuclear power plant that’s out of control, ” he added. “But unless you make the thrill part work, then your subliminal messages don’t come across. You can’t hit anyone over the head; they’re not going to like it.”
