Leigh Whannell and Jason Blum generally make films that scare us. Horrors and thrillers, they’re films we love, but films that keep us up at night. In real life however, they’re hilarious, two creative minds and witty individuals that we very much enjoyed talking to when they came over to London.
We started off discussing a scene that Whannell had cut from the movie, before they chat about how much they admire the work of their leading lady Elisabeth Moss. Whannell also comments on the science behind the film (he also seems intent on starting World War Three), while Blum talks about his dynasty, and what he believes makes a good movie. Lastly, we asked about Whannell’s Escape From New York remake, as he updates excited fans about a project that now sounds a little unlikely…
We then had the pleasure of speaking to Oliver Jackson-Cohen, who plays the title character – a role he explains is an actor’s dream given he’s not in the film much, but everyone keeps speaking about him. He also talks about Jason Blum’s legacy in the genre, and comments on the success of Haunting of Hill House, confirming that they’ve just finished shooting season two.
