Time for Spielberg to be less loyal! New collaborations might lead to new angles.

Maybe Alan Silvestri could replace John... oh.

 

Nevermind.

Well it'd have to be if it's coming out in December.

 

There will be a fair amount of CGI compositing required, as is done for most period pieces of a certain budget (think Zodiac).

Didn't they start filming at the end of May? 2 months seems about right for a small Spielberg drama, mostly interior based. Doesn't seem like there was much exterior or location shooting.

 

He shot Lincoln absurdly fast as well. Something like 30 production days wasn't it?

 

Kahn's probably halfway through his first cut. I'm sure JW will be writing by the end of August and recording in October. A shame he couldn't then move on to RPO in December but it is what it is -- he doesn't owe us anything after a lifetime of brilliant music!

Not sure about Lincoln (30 days seems too low, though, even for Spielberg) but Bridge of Spies was 59 days so I assume this was something similar. Not sure if those would be 5 or 6 day weeks, but anyway they're probably getting close.

Reminds me that I saw a few more pics posted last week, including Spielberg on location with green screen:

I assume filming wrapped weeks ago, but here's some photos from July:

Quite like Kaminski's lighting aesthetic in this setup:

You cant judge the films lighting from a behind the scenes photo, which was probably tweaked anyway.

Well obviously it isn't an exact replica of what will appear in the film but it's plain to see the lighting setup Kaminski's using on this film. It's very Catch Me If You Can.

Hadn't noticed Bob Odenkirk and David Cross in the cast list. Nice ensemble they've got there.

 

Although it doesn't stop this being blatant oscar bait for SS.

I hope so. CMIYC is gorgeously shot.

The BTS photos from a few pages ago show the same aesthetic for the NYC exteriors.

Is it weird the film lists about 30 stunt performers on iMDB? And a stunt double/driver for Tom Hanks? 

 

I'm assuming the latter is just for a random driving scene (pretty standard for Hollywood that the stars don't actually drive) but the amount of stunt performers indicates some creative liberties...

 

EDIT: Hmm, Bridge of Spies lists a similar amount but, other than the Berlin Wall stuff, I don't remember many scenes requiring stunt performers? :unsure:

There was that Berlin Wall sequence where the people are shot?  Trying to think of anything else
