10 Cloverfield Lane star Mary Elizabeth Winstead has spoken about the making of the movie and what we should expect. Scroll down for all the details.
When the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane was dropped earlier this month by Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot Productions it took us all by surprise (read: a very welcome surprise). Described as a “blood relative” to 2008’s cult monster smash, it quickly became apparent that this would be set in the same universe as the original Cloverfield but wouldn’t exactly be a direct sequel.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly at this week’s SAG Awards, the movie’s star Mary Elizabeth Winstead talked about the secretive approach to production:
“There is this veil of secrecy to it from the very beginning. We were making this movie in this little bubble where nobody else knew what we were doing and there’s really only three actors in the whole thing, so it kind of felt like this really intimate experience. Now that it’s about to come out, it’s sort of crazy — like, ‘Oh yeah, people are excited to see this movie.’ I forgot that that was going to happen.”
Winstead stars in the film alongside The Big Lebowski’s John Goodman and up-and-comer John Gallagher Jr., but from the looks of things, those may be the only three actors in the entire movie:
“It’s so much about just the actors interacting with each other and that tension that builds, just all wondering if they are who they say the are, if they’re telling the truth or not, and really wondering what’s outside.”
10 Cloverfield Lane is set for release on March 11th, with Portal: No Escape Dan Trachtenberg on directing duties.
