(SPOILER) Production Notes For Southland Tales. Full details on SMG's new movie Southland Tales, complete with quotes from everyone involved with filming. Other than watching the film, this is as much information as you can get...
A few quotes from SMG:
“Richard’s a free-thinker who thinks outside the box,” continues Gellar. “And I think, unfortunately now, Hollywood and movie-making has become incredibly formulaic. Richard does the exact opposite. Whether it’s casting or story ideas or camera shots, it’s about doing something that’s different. And I think, as an actor, what’s enticing and why he can always get such amazing casts of people is because of the excitement of the unknown, of doing something that hasn’t been done.”
“I think if Richard told me that his next project was going to be a rendition of the Yellow Pages, I probably would be the first one signed on for ‘N’ through ‘T,’” adds Gellar. “I think that he’s so open and he has so many great ideas and he’s willing to try anything. And if it doesn’t work, he moves on. He’s not married to anything. It was a lot of improv. On the day [of shooting], he’s constantly coming up with not just new lines, but incredibly huge, new scenes.”
And one from Richard about SMG:
“I’ve always been a fan of hers,” admits Kelly. “And she’s one of the smartest girls I’ve ever met. She’s taken a lot of risks to do this, to play a porn star and, you know, to do something that’s provocative is pretty ballsy of her.”
This movie sounds very political, and in that sense, I think it has a shot at Cannes. The film festival itself is notorious/famous for picking movies that are political in nature (Farenheight 9/11). It also could be and does sound good, but we will see.
And dangit, I forgot to credit Gunji over at richard-kelly.net and MLKJ13 on the smgfan board. I certainly didnt find this on my own, so credit is due.
