Julia Louis-Dreyfus Takes The Lift For 'Downhill'

"To the fray mom John Horn for Valentine's Day weekend. Here's an idea a new movie. That might leave you contemplating the meaning of marriage. The film is called Downhill. And it's dramatic and dark comedy adapted from the Swedish movie for Moore. The Film Stars Julia Louis Dreyfuss and Will Ferrell as a couple whose family is on a European ski vacation when the resort sets off. What's supposed to be controlled? Avalanche that threatens them and their kids. Each parents reaction reveals deeper divisions in the marriage. Julia Louis Dreyfuss is also a producer of downhill. We got together at the Sundance Film Festival. A couple of weeks ago. Where the movie premiered. She said she. I discussed the idea of an American remake of force majeure with Fox searchlight back in two thousand fourteen but I had just finished making this movie enough said with them and we were talking about further projects and I said believe it or not. I said you know I'm really intrigued. By stories in which reality is seen one way and then a lens is taken off and you look at reality a completely different way within the story and they said well we just came back from con. We saw this movie. You should see this movie. Because we're trying to get the rights to it to rebuild force majeure. Yeah so I said your love to see it and so they screened it and I was utterly hooked. I remember watching force majeure on my laptop and there's a scene in which there's an avalanche and the father without giving too much way doesn't exactly do the right thing that kind of and remember when I watched it. I backed up and watch like ziprecruiter film. I went frame by frame. Like what is he really do? How does he really react? And in the original movie. It's a little vague in your version. It's not I guess. It's a little more clear in your adaptation. I'M GONNA ask about that moment and in your adaptation why that was key to amplify that choice. Well we wanted to be clear what he did but unclear as to the fallout from it. So in other words The wife in this situation play by myself is in utter shock and we wanted to unravel the sweater from that point. From a storytelling point of view. This movie is certainly about the repression of Truth and truth and denial of truth. Which is I think an interesting theme particularly right now. And denial of facts But on both ends because you know initially the couple that you know. It's a stunning moment and then rather than a direct confrontation or conversation. Even about what had happened. They don't have that because I think what happened feels unmentionable because it's so shameful and so They they begin. This is a credit to Jesse Armstrong. Who did the adaptation they begin By attacking an outside source that is to say these safety. The mountains safety guy played by Christopher Hindu and on the enforce measure who is also enforced measure and wonderful in that movie as well as in our movie. Here's what I think you're not picking up on. This was a huge event for our family. Okay and Sir. I don't WanNa make this a legal matter between us. I don't know I don't I but I'm saying that I don't want nothing lyrica. Were you sue. Because your coffee's hot madame school you I'm an attorney okay. You've heard our complaints. Yeah will someone needs to hear it. Thank you for your time. And no. Thank you for your time for me. That is for certain. I thought that was such a great idea to put it away from themselves. Put that anxiety in that tension Onto somebody else before they turn on one pretty cool. We're talking with Julia. Louis Dreyfuss producer and actor in downhill on as about castain and are talking about the kids the couple because they're older than the original film and that changes something because they understand what's happening in the marriage. The kids in the other movie. I think are too young to really appreciate it. These kids are older and they know what's happening and was at written. Was that just something where you start thanking us our producer. What does it mean if these kids are twelve as opposed to seven? We totally discussed that at great length. I mean look both will and I are old right and I'm really old. No no no I am and so and when we first started doing this I was like we gotta get this done soon because pretty soon it's going to be implausible for me to have two young children and in fact they needed to be young because they had to you needed to feel as if they were vulnerable in the situation of the avalanche Had they been in their teens? You might have felt that they were possibly less vulnerable. Not that teenagers can't be vulnerable. But somehow being younger sir heightens the the the the sense of danger I think And then additionally we sort of wrote it into the script or pretty subtly implied that we were an older couple who decided to have children late in life Wills character refers to fertility treatments that we went through and whether or not it was going to work so this was a sort of a later in life choice for this couple which is sort of an interesting idea to what about. Well how did you end up? Casting him He read the script and he was super interested in it and I had seen stranger than fiction and was a very big fan of his work in that I mean I'm a fan of his work period. I mean the guys have stone cold genius but he was able in stranger than to embrace a dramatic tone and therefore he would be able to sort of tackled this material and then we met believe it or not. We never met before not some random. Hollywood party and we have these parallel lives you know because of SNL and Etcetera Etcetera. But no. We have lots of friends in common but we never met. We met four this project and we had a long coffee and talked at great length about the material and He hadn't seen force majeure he'd only read the script of downhill so and he was like I really want to do it and I said well before you sign on make sure you really want to watch the original you know and make sure you WanNa step. Put your toe into this water. There's a expression that a friend of mine who worked in marketing uses an. It's an overcome as like a marketing. Obstacle that a film has. This is a serious movie about marriage and it stars people who are generally known for doing comedies. You think that's an issue in terms of either people come in thinking it's GonNa be funny or people who WanNa see a dramatic film and being unsure of. Comedians can do it completely. It's been a challenge from a marketing point of view. I mean the trailer was very Intentionally I if you watch the trailer you'll see. That's not chock full of That's by design. It looked like it was going to kill us full moment. The kids were screaming because it felt like we were gonNA dot keet and he had grabbed his phone. Keep left us nice. I didn't leave you to bear. Even though there are plenty of jokes within the film I mean there are comedic beats but I would say more dramatic beats than comedic beats when I watch downhill. I went back and rewatch force majeure because I wanted to see how that movie ended and I'm not going to talk about what specifically happens in the ending of your film. There's a scene in both films ski run and there's a scene in your film that is new. That is I. Think my favorite scene in the movie where there's a conversation about what will Ferrell's character can do and it feels like a really interesting way to end the movie. I'm wondering about that scene about its importance in how you try to figure out how the movie should end totally without talking about what she says to her husband. Well I think that we wanted. We did not want the movie to end up with a neat little bow. We wanted to have ambiguity at the end of this film. I think it's safe to say that people might leave the theater thinking either. This couple is gonNA work it out or maybe this couple Is got a real problem on their hands and I think. Both truths are acceptable It's up for. She makes a decision and I think it's questionable decision. Okay I mean you know as a standing outside of it. I can understand why she did it but I'm not sure it's exactly the right thing to do in that moment but that's okay because They're trying to crawl their way out of this mess and this is their kind of muddy messy way of doing it. And you know it's up for discussion as to whether or not it's the right. The right move. I really liked playing that scene because I understood why she would come to that conclusion. But it was very important to me in this in the film that we made that this character that I played was flawed Because I we didn't want it to be a movie about you. Know sort of cowardice and masculinity and just that it needed to be a little more balanced and that was important to me and the wife character in our film makes a couple of pretty miserable decisions.

Disney reaches deal with Amazon to put Disney+ on Fire TV and more

"An interview. Disney CEO Bob Iger said that the Disney plus stream service will be available on fire TV devices vices and Samsung and L. G.. TV's at launch in the US. Which is coming Tuesday November twelfth just a few days from now Disney plus will also be available across Google Apple Bolt Microsoft and Roku as well Disney also announced more details about Disney pluses international? Roll out with the UK. Germany France Italy and Spain getting the service on March thirty first of twenty twenty within the next week Disney plus will be available in the US. Canada the Netherlands Australia and New Zealand Eiger also said that Disney Zinni plus will release more than sixty original movie and TV shows each movies and TV shows each year and FX and Fox searchlight will have designated homes on Hulu starting guarding in March. Yeah I mean this is getting a lot of attention. Don't get me wrong but I think may be lost on some people who follow this more closely like we do. How important important this is? This is the streaming service that everyone knows about and even people who don't get net flicks are likely elite to try signing up for I think for a lot of people this will be their first streaming service and this is the kind of thing that can then pull people industry mean when they say. Oh this is how how this works. Well that's interesting. You can get other things. This way could be the moment we point back to and say that's when the cord cutting wave really finally had it's inflection. Point is it might misinterpretation or is this sort of like Disney's game to lose. I mean they've got everything so they've got all the really really cool stuff and for some reason they have. I think they've prayed. Priced it at least half of what it should be. Maybe a third of what it should cost and so do all they have to do is put it out there. I mean we already know what's in there. It's awesome stuff. It's all this stuff we want right. Yeah no I think you're right like this. This kind of takes out of the equation. Will they like the content. Well I mean yes. There are people who aren't going to like all the content on Disney but man those are few small Alabama people. There's there's something for everybody in there. There's classic Disney stuff. There's high school musical stuff there's marvel there's Lucasfilm there's National Geographic. I mean it's it's all over the place so it's less likely that somebody's not gonna find someone something they like and like you said. The price is pretty affordable to well. Then I think that that's a big part of the a strategy rate ellison you mentioned it seems almost underpriced. Well that's how you get in there. Get into Disney. Plus you get used to it. You like it. Netflix has done done this over the years as well. We're raising our prices incrementally not too much but it's going to be a little bit more expensive than people go well. I I like Netflix. So it's you know it's it's that is the better way to do this because they are on a very competitive plainfield at this point in time is platform to like if you've got a fire TV a Samsung. TV It'll L.

The Oscar nominations will be announced on January twenty second. Just like the academy the WG a has two categories one for original screenplays and one for adapted works and a lot of these movies are also considered front runners. For the Academy Award for best picture, we've had several of the WG a nominees on the frame, and we'll bring you some excerpts today. The shortlist for adapted. Screenplay is Black Panther can you ever? Forgive me. A star is born if Beale street could talk and black klansman earlier today, I spoke with Spike Lee about black clansmen, which is based on the memoir by Ron stallworth. A black policeman in Colorado who infiltrated the KKK in the late nineteen seventies. This David Duke grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan that David do last time. I checked what can I do for? Well since you asked. I hate blacks. I hate Jews Mexicans an Irish and anyone else really that doesn't have pure white Aryan blood running through their veins. I'm talking about true white American. God bless white America. I asked about the tone of the script that he co wrote with Kevin Willmott among other writers and lease started with how producer Jordan Peele pitched him on the films. Premise win Jordan pill gave me the pitch of the film the six word pitch. Black men. Infiltrates KKK the first word Kane. My mind is is true and endurance that. Yes. And then the next word. This is observed so the Umer this is not a comedy the Yuma from black. Classic comes from the sturdy of the premise. Karen that weren't writing jokes Lee were getting humor organically from the premise berry Jenkins who two years ago when the best picture Oscar for moonlight adapted the James Baldwin novella if Beale street could talk into a movie of the same name, it's the first Baldwin book turned into an American feature film Jenkins said he was attracted by many elements of the Baldwin story, especially the young couple at its centre. How much the young lovers meant. Which other was the first thing that grabbed me it just such a I mean jumps off the page. A certain way, and especially in this novel because you know, Mr. Baldwin wrote with two very distinct voice as he wrote with many voices, there were two that always jumped out to me the most one which just almost enraptured with this idea of sensuality with love with romance with passion. The other one was just as searing about depicting societal injustices, and particularly the way that the lives and souls of black folks has been treated, you know, by the country that we all call call home. And so when I read the book for the first time and saw just how how devoted Titian Fani arts one another. I was just I don't know. How can you not be lifted up by that in the rigid screenplay race? The nominees are eighth grade..

"And maybe it does fall to the favourite. 'cause it's everyone's like third choice. I one of survey Shen famously HBO dominated the Emmys for many years. Yes. And they would tell their nominations because he'd be it was a branch they'd say we had one hundred thirty nine EMMY nominations this year movie studios. Historically, do not do that. Because no one knows what FOX searchlight is traditional consumers to can't really tell the difference between Colombia and screen gems and Sony Pictures classics even though they're all owned by the same company. What they do is. They say this movie got thirteen nominations or nine or six I think net flicks is going to be the first company. That's like we got the most Oscar nominations of any company. So they're gonna say Netflix has I don't know nineteen nominations. I'm very curious to see if they use that strategy because Netflix says the only real brand Disney of horses, a brand, but Disney historically doesn't care about the Oscars. So I'll be very curious to see if on our drive to work every day when we pass by the Netflix offices, and we see those big banners and billboards if they'll be touting not just Roma and not just documentary that they're proud of. But the company in TOTO, you know, I'm sure they will I totally. But that just seems like a foregone conclusion like that seems it'd be kind of innovation though, we're in a world where Burbach says forty five million. You know, are we are we in a in a world? In a world where Netflix is claiming that, but they'll clean anything. And that's kind of the the buzz and the attention is how they make their money. So of course, they will imagine that just seems natural to me because Wilde's or are they trying to win Oscars with the big race. Yeah. I want to talk about best animated feature actors very fun for me because you haven't seen these movies and don't care about seeing two of these you don't respect me. You don't respect to this art form trail respecting you. Anyway, I think you agree that the Spiderman is a spider versus incredible to right? I think so. Yeah. Only three times since two thousand seven has the result differ from the Oscars results in the category. I'm talking about the Globes here so in oh seven cars, one at the Globes and happy feet, one of the Oscars shot to George Miller in twenty eleven the adventures of Tinton one at the Golden Globes famously derided by Steven Spielberg. And Rangel, one at the Oscars Tinton was not even nominated at the Oscars, which is kind of amazing shadow to wrangle fucking love Ranko. And then in two thousand fourteen how to train your dragon to one of the Golden Globes and frozen one at the Oscars. Amanda, I think that there's an interesting Spiderman into the spider thing that could happen here. Which is that this might change the dynamic of the Pixar dominance of all this stuff. Incredible. To is one of the biggest movies of the year. It's it's gone. Very well reviewed Brad bird is very well liked in the academy that said Spiderman to the spider versus like literally one of the five best reviewed films of the year, you refuse to see it because you're a coward. But. And you won't you don't accept great art. But I I'm curious one. If you think that sort of like shattering the Disney stronghold here is meaningful in any way. And also, especially in a year where they have Mary Poppins returns competing in category where they actually have other movies and Black Panther, frankly with marvel and also why won't you watch these movies? I do think that the ending the Disney stronghold would be significant because I typically see one to two animated movies air, and it's whatever Disney Pixar movie has been nominated that everyone's talking about. Now, let go, you know, movies so much, and like what it triumph, and this is really disturbing. It's I'm sorry. The only time that you can feel when cartoons are running around. But anyway mentioned seeing cocoa and having a black heart. You know what I was late. I know inside out I was weeping. I just like actually I watched it..

New allegations emerge against former CBS CEO Les Moonves

"KCRW sponsors include FOX searchlight pictures, presenting the favourite a story of loyalty power and deception from director your ghost length Imos, starring Livia Coleman, Emma stone. Rachel vice and nNcholas Holt now playing in select theaters, I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt felony of the Hollywood reporter. And Matt Hollywood is just stunned by this article that ran in the New York Times yesterday that described the final days of les Moonves says as the head of CBS this much mired suave seemingly very sophisticated executive at one of the most powerful executives in the business. And this article describes this frantic effort that he engaged in to cover up an alleged sexual assault than and again this. These all seem to have been some years ago at some point he seems to have gotten a grip and stopped this pattern of allegedly assaulting women serially, but this one particular case a manager knew about it this kind of. I know someone who knows him who referred to him as a sort of a Broadway, Danny rose character. And this manager took advantage of this knowledge and pressured les Moonves who frantically tried to cover up what he knew would be a completely career ending story. If it were to be exposed, right? And it was a series of attempted payoffs move as was attempting to foist this woman onto a CBS show and get her paid. So her manager could get paid. So the manager would tell this actress to not come forward against les Moonves, and it just descended into this series of text messages back and forth and meetings at delis and a really desperate attempt by one of the most powerful men in Hollywood to keep this a secret. Yeah. And this is what ultimately the board finally hit a point where they could not deal with it. He had such support on his board. And you know, this is a chronic problem. I think in this industry and others the boards. Just rub. Or stamp a powerful executive, and that's gone on for a long time. But at this point if despite the deep support he had on the board one of the board members in particular was like I can't deal with it anymore, and it became a career ender, and it's striking that they had already done this internal investigation with which shows you the value of internal investigations which exonerated him. And basically, and you know, these internal investigations I think we should say are just kind of joke. The thing that ended up being keys when they looked into this later, they realized that what he had done was used his position at CBS to cover up an alleged abuse claim from an actress and once that was established he was gone now. The question is how much of this severance payment that he is allegedly negotiating right now, which could be as much as one hundred twenty million dollars. How much if anything is he gonna get and I will speculate that that number will be zero because I think it is clear that the story kills any chance. That they will pay him a diamond I think they said at one point they they don't have to disclose the outcome. But I feel that somehow that might leak this call that hunch. Yeah. And honestly the question here is whether they are letting him go four 'cause and I think attempting to the investigation of your conduct when you are the CEO thinking thank probably caused for terminates s we see this the same way. Thank you, Matt Hume, that's felony editorial director of the Hollywood. Reporter. He joins me this Monday at two o'clock on the business.
