One of the many films to premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was writer-director Jill Soloway’s Afternoon Delight. Starring Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple, Josh Radnor and Jane Lynch, the film’s about a L.A. housewife that “puts her idyllic hipster life in jeopardy when she tries to rescue a stripper by taking her in as a live-in nanny.” Featuring great performances from the entire cast, the film was well received by audiences and critics and Soloway won the U.S. Dramatic Directing Award during the closing night festivities.
The day after the premiere, I landed an extended interview with Juno Temple. While I’ll be posting the full conversation soon, today I’m posting what she had to say about making Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, Alexandre Aja’s Horns (which stars Daniel Radcliffe), and Robert Rodriguez’ Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Hit the jump for more.
“Can I tell you something? I’ve never really had the wind knocked out of me, but when I walked on to that set for the first time it was amazing. We were doing this one scene where we were shooting downtown in Los Angeles and they owned, unbeknownst to me, about five blocks for the night, so when they said ‘cut,’ everything went in reverse; people, cars, everything.”
Talking about Horns:
“I’m so excited to see Horns because it’s so many different genres in one film. It’s a sci-fi, it’s a love story, it’s a horror movie, it’s a fairy tale. It’s gonna be so many different things… Daniel Radcliffe is one of the hardest working people I have ever encountered and someone that so loves what he’s doing and so eager to learn and is so brilliant at what he does. He has really got his craft down and was such a pleasure to be around, truly a breath of fresh air.”
And here’s what she said about Sin City 2. I messed up by not asking what character she plays. If you watch the video below she also talks about working on green screen.
“I just did a part in Sin City 2. I got to do a scene with Ray Liotta. Amazing man, extraordinary gentleman who was just so kind to me… I’m so excited about that, I think it’s gonna be very cool.”
Here’s a lot more with Temple on all three films. Look for the full interview soon.
