Julianne Moore talks about George and Suburbicon

Post by Sevens on Fri 26 May 2017, 08:18

WWD: You also star in “Suburbicon,” directed by George Clooney. What is unique about his approach to directing?

J.M.: He’s great. He’s incredibly prepared and he attracts a tremendously talented crew, which says a lot for him personally and professionally. You know, when someone has that caliber of talent around them, that they are gifted themselves, and well-liked and really capable.

It’s based on a script that the Coen brothers wrote years ago that George found, and they agreed to have him to direct it. It’s me, Matt Damon and Oscar Isaac.

WWD: Can you share any of the storyline?

J.M.: Matt Damon and I play a couple that lives in a Levittown, the name for the suburban communities in the United States that were built by William Levitt after World War II, with people needing affordable housing very quick. There was one outside of Pennsylvania, there was one in Long Island….So this is based in a community like that, and it’s a primarily white community. And in it an African-American family moves in and everyone starts blaming all the trouble on them. In the meantime, there’s a lot of stuff that’s happening in our household that Damon and I share, there’s some stuff happening there and they’re hiding in the chaos.

Anybody else wonder exactly how he found the script?? Had it fallen down the back of their sofa? Did he have to break into their office? Do the Coens often leave their scripts lying around in public places for stars to find? I think the world deserves to know.

When the Coens got the rights to the script they probably talked about what they wanted to do with it. George probably showed interest early on, and when it looked like they'd never get around to making it he stepped up and asked if he could do it. Obviously they said yes.

I'm curious how much input the Coens had on the film - especially the script.

If I'm not wrong, back then he was asked to be in the movie. Then the movie didn't get made and he asked to direct it.

Oh, the film has been rated R for language, violence and some sexuality.

George said the Coens wanted to direct it and offered him a role in early 2000s, he apparently read and has had the script for a while.
