Ready to catch fire with Angelina Jolie?
Fresh from his dominance on television with Yellowstoneand movies like Sicario and Wind river, Writer / director Taylor Sheridan teamed up with Angelina Jolie to bring us one High stakes story of survival and salvation rolled into one.
The film is called The ones who want me deadand it will be in Theaters and streaming exclusively on HBO Max on May 14th. They released this behind-the-scenes feature to give us a glimpse of where this story is going.
Check it out below.
First of all, can you believe that they built a 300 acre forest in the middle of a desert and then set it on fire just for production? I love movies, and that’s the kind of practical magic that makes people go back to the theater.
It’s fun to see that kind of size and production value, but also to know that it comes from the characters’ journey. Sheridan made a name for himself in Hollywood for writing some of the best, most visceral characters on screen. This time Jolie is in the lead as a firefighter with some luggage. She teamed up with a child who is being chased by ruthless killers.
I have to admit that I find it exciting to see Sheridan on this budget. He has a way of making things look raw and real, and you know that in his films, people will fight to the very last frame.
This is a western at heart, but that doesn’t mean things can’t explode.
