London: Actor Eric Bana will be living out his childhood fantasies in his next film when he plays a tough police detective.

The 45-year-old Australian star has already shot the film, in which he portrays real-life Bronx cop Ralph Satchi in `Beware the Night` - and he got the chance to hang out with the man he`s playing, reported Contactmusic.

"It was an amazing experience this past summer, shooting at night in the Bronx. It`s my first experience working in the horror genre. I play a real person, Ralph Satchi, a tough as nails detective in the 46th Precinct of the Bronx. Through a series of investigations, he discovers demonic elements to some of these cases. I think it will be extremely scary coming out next summer," Bana said.

"I got my Bronx on and I loved it. I had the real Ralph there everyday and got to know him well. It was my first time playing a cop so I was living out some childhood fantasies," he added.
