‘The Black Phone’ Director Said Ethan Hawke Is Going Through a ‘McConaissance,’ Fans Clap Back

The Black Phone marks a major moment for Ethan Hawke, who doesn’t tend to play horror villains. Co-writer/director Scott Derrickson recently made a comment that the actor is going through a sort of “McConaissance” with his performance as the serial killer called The Grabber. However, Hawke fans immediately clapped back at why they think that assessment of his career is total nonsense.
