M. Night Shyamalan is back with OLD, another twisted story of the filmmaker. This time, a group of tourists find themselves on a secluded beach, only to make a horrible discovery. As children begin to age rapidly, a strange and disturbing revelation comes to the characters involved. The impressive cast includes Gael García Bernal, Vicky Krieps, Rufus Sewell, Alex Wolff, Thomasin McKenzie, Abbey Lee, Ken Leung, Nikki Amuka-Bird, and Aaron Pierre. Adapted from a graphic novel by Pierre-Oscar Levy, this is a return to the big screen for Shyamalan after the recent success of Glass.
One thing M. Night Shyamalan has always been able to do is attract a talented cast. And recently, we had the incredible pleasure of speaking with Gael García Bernal, Alex Wolff and Thomasin McKenzie. First, we chatted with Alex about taking on the role of a six-year-old. His process of how to create this character was very charming and the actor clearly enjoyed his experience. He also talked about working with Nicolas Cage on the new movie. Pig. What an amazing actor this nice guy is. The same can be said of Mrs. Thomasin. The impressive talent not only got a chance to give one of the best performances in this movie, but also talked about working with directors like Edgar Wright for Last Night In Soho and of course Taika Waititi on JoJo Rabbit.
Finally, we sat down with one of my favorites, Mr. Gael García Bernal. I’ve been a fan of the actor for a long time and have had the pleasure of chatting with him before. He opened up about taking on this particular project and the approach of getting old quickly in such a terrifying way. The actor is pretty good here, and considering the psychological horrors exposed, he had a lot to work with. We look forward to sharing our conversation with M. Night himself tomorrow. And of course, if you are waiting for Mr. Shyamalan’s return, you can check Old in a theater near you starting tonight.
