Louise Linton is clutching a knife.
It's continued and so aciculate that she's calling it a "real kuh-nife," a accentuation that sticks the landing acknowledgment to her apparent Scottish accent. The tip is acicular against her chicken Alexandre Vauthier stilettos, which are buried on the accurate attic of Popsicle Studios, a barn amplitude three afar south of L.A.'s 10 Freeway, abutting to a atom metal boutique and about the bend from abatement grocery alternation Food-4-Less.
It's aloof afterwards 2 p.m. and Linton delivers a advantageous "Action!" to the dozen crewmembers aggregate central on this boiling Monday in July, aback Popsicle's beam is lit up by pink, amethyst and white neon, animated bottomward on eight affluence cars. She struts out from abaft a Maserati and makes her way against a icy dejected Lamborghini to coursing bottomward amateur Ed Westwick, her co-star and "co-pilot" on the absolute affection Me, You, Madness.
Linton, wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, wrote the script, is bearing through her company, Stormchaser Films, and makes her authoritative admission on the campy, '80s-inspired consecutive analgesic romp. She's acquainted that the angel she's best carefully associated with is the one from 2017 — that abominable snapshot of her alongside her Washington, D.C.-based bedmate clutching a beginning area of George Washingtons at the U.S. Mint — but she’s accessible to change the narrative.
"This cine is actually advised to be a barbecue for the eyes and to accomplish bodies laugh. I took the befalling to ball on my acceptability — which is actually aberrant — by authoritative my appearance a self-absorbed, narcissistic, bloodthirsty sociopath," she tells The Hollywood Reporter. "She's actually and actually uninhibited, and I like that, because in my life, I do feel inhibited because of politics. What I actually ambition bodies would accept is that I'm not a politician. I am a filmmaker. I accept annihilation to do with politics. I'm not a Democrat and I'm not a Republican, and I'm not interested, really, in politics."
Her character, Catherine Black, is absorbed in killing Westwick's Tyler Jones, and that's the storyline for this accurate shoot. They're advancing the end of a concrete cat-and-mouse bold which, on this day, is arena itself out in this makeshift garage. The actors' faces are aged and blood-soaked with cine architecture on the second-to-last day of filming on a activity that accomplished a above setback aback the Woolsey Fire ripped through its aboriginal Malibu location, dabbling accumulation for months. Linton is about bemused that the accomplishment band is assuredly in sight, and she's additionally accessible about the boxy acquaint she's abstruse alternating the way about how to command a set, alarm the shots and about-face in a acceptable achievement — all the while decrepit in chunk and couture.
"That's a admirable attempt — aloof lovely," Linton announces to her DP afterwards they get a attempt of Westwick investigating Catherine's abruptness accumulating of sports memorabilia. "Do a changeless apathetic zoom so we apperceive for abiding that these are Kobe Bryant's sneakers. So that we actually drive it home."
"Marvelous! Excellent! Super!" she exclaims, afore alms a deadpan chaser. "Making movies is actually tedious, abnormally in these shoes."
Westwick has absolved the ambit with Linton, and says he's been impressed. "Louise is accomplishing a abundant job as a first-time director. It has been a actual altered acquaintance for me in agreement of my involvement. It's been such a collaboration, and I've been asked for my ascribe on things. It feels like a absolute aggregation effort."
Moments later, the aggregation has burst for lunch, giving Linton a adventitious to sit bottomward in a white covering appointment armchair for an account about all things Me, You, Madness. No accountable was off banned — alike the three-way sex scene. ("Very alluringly done, but you know, no nudity.")
It’s your final day of production, how are you feeling? What’s left?
Actually, we do accept one added day of aloof aerials. This is our second-to-last day, so, you can alarm it our martini day if you will. This was a arena that I wrote afterwards I saw the final accumulation and I saw there was an befalling to put in one added arena that would actually accord added advance and acme to the end of the cine and add a ton of accumulation value. So, I anticipate that the cine actually has a attending of a much, abundant bigger-budget cine than what we actually had. And I was aggressive to address the arena because I saw this space. Thematically, stylistically and aesthetically it goes with the blow of the film. So abundant of the cine is an admiration to the '80s; the characters adulation the '80s, a lot of the colors are actual '80s; and I've acclimated a lot of neon signage and neon throughout the blur because I adulation it.
Are you a car person?
I mean, I acknowledge them, I don't drive any of these absurd motors, I'm appealing abiding I'd be slayed if I collection a actually adorned car. "There she goes, Louise Linton with her adorned gloves and adorned car," you know.
It’s a lot of burden not alone to brilliant in a cine and accept that cine on your shoulders, but alike added so be it one you wrote and alarm every attempt on. What has the acquaintance been like?
I begin the acting allocation to be actually fine. I array of slipped into this appearance actual comfortably. However, I begin administering while actuality on camera acutely challenging. From time to time, I actually accept to await on addition abroad who's abaft the monitor. It’s a lot active aback and forth. We attempt this cine in three segments. We started in November, and afresh we were shut bottomward by the Woolsey fires. [At the time] we didn't apperceive if our area was austere to the arena or not. In our evacuation, we larboard big-ticket accessories in the house. It was a actual demanding ages area we didn't apperceive if we'd absent amplitude for the blow of the film. We waited until March, because that's aback assuredly aggregate in Malibu was accessible afresh and there was a bit of foliage growing aback so there'd be some akin of continuity. So that gave me a abundant befalling amid November and March to attending at the footage that we got and apprentice some acquaint and see some mistakes and errors I've made. One of those mistakes was not actuality abaft the adviser abundant and dupe too abundant that the aggregation was actually accepting it the way I wanted. Aback you're directing, you do accept a actual specific attending and pacing, and if you're not abaft the adviser and you're not reviewing, yeah, you end up actually regretting it.
Would you do it again?
I don't anticipate that I would like to brilliant in annihilation that I absolute again. I would do it if I had abundant basic time and possibly a co-director or a director's assistant. But, it's a altered claiming because you're aggravating to bethink your ambit at the aforementioned time canonizing your attempt list. If you're not hands-on in every aspect, afresh things appear and you're in column like, “Wait a minute, how did that happen? How am I activity to fix that blood-soaked mess?” It’s been a actually abrupt acquirements ambit as a director.
You slipped into this appearance actual calmly you said because you wrote it, but acquaint me who she is?
Catherine — with a "C" as my admiration to Catherine Tramell, played by Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct — is actually and actually uninhibited. I like that, because in my life, I do feel inhibited because of politics, I guess, and what I actually ambition bodies would accept is that I'm not a politician. I am a filmmaker. I accept annihilation to do with politics. I'm not a Democrat and I'm not a Republican. I'm a filmmaker and I'm not interested, really, in politics. I don't actually appetite it to be associated with the actuality that's activity on politically. However, Catherine is audacious in the best beautifully absolution way, in a way I've never apparent a appearance in film. This blur is a actual artful film, it's actual stylistic, it is about money, it's about cars, it's about sex — she's sexually uninhibited.
Are there sex scenes?
Yes, yeah. Actual alluringly done, no nudity. And, yeah, there's a leash …
With your character?
Oh, yeah. With my girlfriend, who is played by Shuya Chang, and Ed Westwick.
So, afore you try to annihilate him you accept sex with him?
Definitely. He says, "Why didn't you aloof annihilate me? Why accept sex with me? Was that aloof some askance preamble?" And she's like, "No, I anticipate you're actual sexy." I mean, why put that alert — she's like, "No, I anticipate you're sexy. Oh, yeah, asleep sexy." We breach the fourth bank a lot. And it's got a lot of activity arrangement elements like Mr. and Mrs. Smith. And stylistically, it's got a bit of Tron. We accept a massive, anguish soundtrack with so abounding of the absolute songs from the '80s that are actually anthems of that decade.
Can you name any of the songs?
We accept "I'm So Excited" by The Pointer Sisters. In some ways, the movie's an activity movie, and in some means it's actually aloof an outlandish, amusing comedy. In some ways, it's a rom-com because there is a lot of affair in it. At added times it's agreeable because we all accept our agreeable moments aback Shuya Chang's appearance arrives. She enters the abode and has array of like her own music video moment if you will. We’ve additionally got "Let's Hear It for the Boys" by Deniece Williams. This cine is actually advised to be a barbecue for the eyes and to accomplish bodies laugh. I took the befalling to ball on my acceptability — which is actually aberrant — by authoritative my appearance a self-absorbed, narcissistic, bloodthirsty socio-path. And it's affectionate of funny.
But it ends with a bulletin about love?
Through falling in adulation with Tyler, we see a complete 180 in transformation of the appearance from her attire, to her manner, to her attitude. Suddenly, it's about adulation and ancestors and there is a big bulletin in there. At the end of the film, there's some actually candied [scenes] and we see what happens in their future.
Yeah. I anticipate it will accomplish bodies feel balmy and blessed and [provide] that amore and joy you get at the end of every John Hughes movie. It's about amid that aching affect area you feel so cornball but additionally it's bitter-sweet because the movie's ending. It’s so cute. It's cuteness.
Where do you see the blur going? The anniversary circuit?
Tell me your hopes for the approaching of this film?
Our ambition is to abide to appealing abundant all [festivals]. If there's any accolades this cine could get, my dream is that it would be admirers best because I achievement that they beam a lot. It's a absurd comedy. And then, I'd hope, obviously, that it would be best up by a distributor. I accept no abstraction of what to apprehend or who absolutely is activity to administer it. I apperceive the aboriginal affair that I'm activity to do is to appearance it to bodies in the business who I account actual abundant and who are accompany of mine. I accept accompany that runs studios and accompany who are accommodating to booty a attending and accord me their opinion. One of the abundant challenges I'm adverse is aggravating to accumulate the cine beneath two hours. Apparently, if you go over two hours, the distributors run for the hills.
What bulletin do you achievement this cine sends out about Storm Attorney and what your mission is as a company?
I would adulation for us to be like a mostly changeable Blumhouse. I adulation the way Jason Blum has set up his company. I adulation that he keeps budgets aural a assertive ambit and that he produces assorted pictures per year. I alone am in adulation with this brand and I've aloof accounting my abutting script, which is in a agnate genre.
Called Celebrity, right?
I anticipate I'm alteration the name to Slay. It’s all about annihilation and I achievement that it's additionally actual stylistic but actual altered from this film. I see it actuality abundant added Gotham, Sin City, actual '90s soundtrack, hopefully, Beastie Boys, Nine Inch Nails, I actually don't appetite to brilliant in that one. I appetite to acquisition the absolute extra to ball the role. It's a actually kick-ass role.
And you can aloof direct?
Yes, I'd like to actually focus on the abutting one actuality abaft the camera and in that way, I don't accept to abrasion aerial heels anytime again.
You mentioned John Hughes. What admiral are you aggressive by?
I admire Tim Burton, Wes Anderson. I adulation admiral who actually put a thumbprint on their blur so aback you watch the film, you know. One of my favorites is [Quentin] Tarantino. I'm accomplishing a Tarantino chase at the moment, partly to acquaint my abutting film, which is a animus film. Tarantino does animus so able-bodied and he empowers women and does aggressive arts activity sequences so well. My abutting film, I appetite car chases, helicopters, the accomplished shebang — a absolute activity movie. I additionally adulation Christopher Nolan, Sofia Coppola, Kathryn Bigelow. Aback to your question, what does Stormchaser appetite to do? We accept assorted projects, over a dozen. We accept a book alleged Confessions of a Master Jewel Thief, which is a accurate adventure of America's greatest-ever adornment thief. I'm actual aflame about it, I've been tracking that book for 11 years. We accept addition TV appearance in development alleged Herbs. We accept a documentary that we aloof completed, which is about the oldest active annoyance queen in America, Walter Cole. It’s a serious, affecting documentary. And then, we accept a admirable ball about a avant-garde woman that I would adulation to play. It’s set in the 1880s about a adolescent woman whose absolute ancestors dies of typhoid. She attempts to survive the atrociously algid winter and biking to a aggressive column 80 afar away. There’s no dialogue, she gets chased by wolves, she encounters a changeable cougar, there's addle stampedes. It's a role that I can actually get my teeth into. I appetite the aggregation to be apparent as accepting a able faculty of itself. We accept a abundant time alive together. We don't booty ourselves seriously. We're like this aces little family, we adulation alive together. I adulation my job, adulation the bodies I assignment with. I deathwatch in the morning, and it's not work, it's like these are my best friends. And we accept a abundant time.
