Nieuws: Dakota Fanning over haar rol in Zygote
Begin deze eeuw was Dakota Fanning als kind in een hoop grote films en TV producties te zien en zoals dat gaat worden kindersterren groot en vallen ze uit beeld. Maar vijf dagen geleden maakte ze een onverwachte comeback in de science-fiction horror short Zygote van Neill Blomkamps Oats Studio's. De website Collider had daarom een interview met haar en daar van kan je hier onder een klein stukje lezen.
Collider: I have to say, I really enjoyed this short, but the creature has stuck with me since I watched it. What did you think of the creature, once you saw the final visuals?
DAKOTA FANNING: I saw images of what it was going to look like, but of course, it was completely computer generated, so when I saw it for the first time, it was so much grosser than I had pictured. It was cool to see it come alive. The noise, the movement and realizing what it’s made of was so gross.
When and how were you approached about this project, and what were you told about what this would be?
FANNING: I worked with Neill Blomkamp on his BMW commercial (The Escape) last summer. We shot for 10 days and got to know each other a bit, and then a few months later, he asked if I would be interested in doing an experimental project – a short film – for his studio and he sent me the script he had for it, at the time. I loved working with him so much and I think he’s so talented, and I thought that this idea was super cool. I was excited to be a part of something I’ve never really done before. This was the kind of character I’d never played. And then, when I got there and saw what everything was going to look like, in the end, I saw how talented the people were who were working on it. With the special effects, I learned a lot and was excited by it. Just from working with him before, he thought of me for this and the timing worked out, so here it is.
