Interview with Writer/Director John Erick Dowdle
What can you tell us about your most recent project, Devil?
JD: That it is a supernatural thriller. And honestly I don't know what I can tell you. M. Night Shyamalan is very secretive about things and. The financier is also very secretive. I worry about what I can and cannot say. We just finished shooting on December 16th. We're starting post tomorrow. We'll be in post until June sometime, I believe the movie will be coming out in October.What was it like working with M. Night Shyamalan?
JD: It was wonderful. It's sort of great having someone like Night Shyamalan available and around and just sort of discussing how he would do something, and how I would normally do something. It became this wonderful chance to get a lot of wonderful insight from someone who's been doing this successfully for a number of years. We learned so much in this process. It was nice too, because he theologically has a similar sense of shooting. We, in Quarantine we did a lot of long one shots without shooting much coverage, and that kind of stuff, it's a very difficult thing to do, and he shared a similar sensibility about that. He's definitely not a very 'edity' filmmaker. He depends more on blocking, on getting it right on set. It was nice for us to do a bigger studio movie, getting the studio-level talent to work with us.
Having someone like Night Shamalan available to bounce ideas off of and to brainstorm pieces of the script. It was pretty amazing. It's great having smart people available. I think a lot of why people get better as they go as filmmakers is they get to surround themselves with smarter and smarter people. And I think that's absolutely true in our case. You know, The Poughkeepsie Tapes, my brother in law Steve Chbosky, who is a wonderful writer, came on as an exec producer early on, and helped with a lot of advice that helped us immensely. On Quarantine we had a lot of really smart people involved. Night Shyamalan is a wonderful producer.Full story
