Bel Ami Directors Declan Donnellan & Nick Ormerod mention Robert Pattinson in a new interview   1 comment

From DIY:

With Bel Ami in UK cinemas now, we caught up with directors Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod in London talk about their all-star debut.

The couple formed the Laurence Olivier award-winning theatre company Cheek By Jowl in 1981, putting on Shakespeare productions and more worldwide. They’ve made their film debut with this racy adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s 1885 novel, about penniless soldier Georges (Robert Pattinson), who sleeps his way through Parisian’s high profile wives (Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas) for power. Read our review here.

We met with Donnellan and Ormerod to talk about their rascal of a lead character, getting the cast on such a modest budget, and their working relationship.

So how is the film world treating you? 
Donnellan: The red carpet in Berlin was absolutely amazing. We’d never had much intrusion from Robert’s fans, and Rob’s really serious – he insisted on rehearsing for a whole month before we started to shoot. There was no intrusion on the set. The thing they had in common – all the principles came from completely different background in cinema. They all had one thing in common, in that they were doing something they’d never done before – the roles stretched each of them. Then we hit Berlin… [laughs] It was incredible fun.
Ormerod: We expected something fairly extraordinary, and it was amazing.
Donnellan: Nick burst out laughing one morning when he was reading the emails. He couldn’t stop laughing, saying “we had a letter from Hugo Boss, asking permission to dress us in Berlin!”
Ormerod: This is a Hugo Boss jacket!
