It’s funny that last week I did an article all about adaptations. This week’s interview is about a movie that was written just for the big screen. This is the type of movie that made me fall in love with film. I love any good movie, but there’s something truly special about a movie of this kind. When everything is written from the ground up for a big screen experience, and only having that in mind. It’s tough to describe, but it’s certainly something you will know when you see it. They’re few and far apart now, so I got very excited when I learned about Bad Times at the El Royale.
The writer/director/producer of this film, Drew Goddard is responsible for having written some of my favorite shows and movies. That’s why I love doing these articles. I hadn’t heard his name until today, and all along he’s been an inspiration to me. He’s written The Martian, Cabin in the Woods, Lost, and Cloverfield.
A few questions from the interview:
“What inspired this film?”
“Was the El Royale inspired by a particular hotel?”
“How interesting is it working with an ensemble cast?”
“Can you discuss the style and look of the film?”
