“It was [Javier's] idea to go right back to the source material and essentially shoot it shot-for-shot, as in the book, but with a little more backstory for some of the characters,” O’Barr told them. “He wants to be as faithful as possible, even down to all the visual metaphors of trains and horses.”
O’Barr, who is active in this new version of his book, talks on seeing Luke Evans in make-up: “The producers showed me some shots of [Luke Evans] in the make-up, and the tragedy really shows on his face, especially his eyes. He has a really commanding screen presence.”
All that being said... can we finally start getting a bit excited?
The film is being produced by Ed Pressman, Kevin Misher, Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh, and Jeff Most. Exec producers include Relativity’s president Tucker Tooley, The Weinstein Co.’s Harvey and Bob Weinstein, and Farah Films’ Dan Farah.
Look for more soon.
