'Excuse me sir, do you have a towel?'
Further to being off the grid… here’s a tiny bit more scene-setting for The Revenant from director Alejandro González Iñárritu. He was doing an interview with Anne Thompson (who describes The Revenant as ”starring Tom Hardy and Leonardo DiCaprio” ;)). Talk about freezing your badass off: the film will have nothing but exteriors.
Full interview here.
Your own personal relationship with Hollywood: you have turned down a lot of things. No “Jungle Book,” no big Hollywood movie. But now you’re doing “The Revenant.” So you’re going to start this movie…
And start in three weeks.
Sometimes you have long distances between these projects, but this is fast.
This is the first one that I did back-to-back in my life, and let’s see how it goes. But I’m happy. It will be six months, in the middle of nowhere, freezing my ass in British Calgary in the snow, and only exteriors. Tough locations, very, very difficult kind of weather conditions. This will be a tough movie for me, but a new genre.
What is the genre?
That’s a good question, because it’s kind of like a pre-Western kind of thing. 1823. It’s not a Western.
Well, you’re smarter than you might think: you’re getting to skip the promotion for [your] movie [Birdman].
I will. I will because I will be freezing off my ass, and I probably will miss that — being in L.A., going in some limousines, having some drinks. I will be in the middle of nowhere, suffering, but I will be happy if Michael gets something, because I think he did an amazing job. (x)
