Damsel filmed near Coos Bay, Oregon, recently.
I’m excited to see what the Zellner brothers do with this cast (so far). Pattinson is still proving himself more than just pubescent
girl fodder, and is whipping out all kinds of interesting films (Life, The Rover, and the upcoming The Lost City of Z). Wasikowska,
however, has no proving to do. She’s simply awesome. From my personal favorites, Jane Eyre and Stoker, to the well known, Alice in
Wonderland and Crimson Peak, Wasikowska is a force; and one that I watch for!
Plot: “Western Era comedy about a man trying to marry the woman of his dreams.”
Directed: by David Zellner (Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, Kid-Thing, Goliath). Zellner is also known to act in his films.
Written: by The Zellner Brothers. Nathan and director brother David. Original script.
Starring: Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga, The Rover, Life, The Lost City of Z, and Map to the Stars – where he also starred
alongside Mia Wasikowska). Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Tracks, Crimson Peak, Jane Eyre,
Stoker, and Only Lovers Left Alive. It’s rare that I don’t LOVE one of her films. Starring alongside Pattinson and Wasikowska is
also Joseph Billingiere, who has done small parts in John Carter and Jonah Hex.
Cinematography: is by Adam Stone (Mud, Take Shelter, Midnight Special, and 2016’s independent beauty, Loving). I’m stoked to see
what his lens and perspective will bring to this project.
