With Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones getting released around the country tomorrow, it’s time for my final video interview and it’s with Rachel Weisz. The reason I got to speak with the cast is our partners at Omelete were invited to the international press day and they sent me to cover it. So a big thank you to them for making this happen.
The Lovely Bones is based on the novel by Alice Sebold and it’s about a 14-year-old girl named Susie Salmon who is lured into a makeshift underground den in a cornfield and brutally raped and murdered, the latest victim of a serial killer-the man she knew as her neighbor. From heaven, Susie keeps watch over her grieving family and friends, as well as her brazen killer and the sad detective working on her case. The film stars Rachel Weisz, Mark Wahlberg, Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Michael Imperioli and Saoirse Ronan.
During my interview with Rachel Weisz I decided to start off my asking a question she hadn’t been asked…so I asked about The Brothers Bloom. Of course we also talked about Lovely Bones, filming the movie, working for Peter Jackson, and we even talked about Twitter and Facebook. It’s a great interview so take a look:
- Rather than start with a typical question, I start by asking about The Brothers Bloom
- Is she into Twitter or Facebook
- How fast did she sign onto this project after Peter Jackson contacted her
- Did she know about the book
- The break in filming
- Filming in Pennsylvania
- What does she think makes Peter Jackson such a great director
- Agora talk
