Elle Fanning Reveals Secrets of "Super 8"
Independent Films, Talk Shows, Interviews
I really enjoyed talking to Elle Fanning! I interviewed the young actress last year for Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere," and this year, she's starring in the surefire blockbuster, "Super 8." She plays Alice, the lone female member of the filmmaking gang in the small mining town of Lillian, Ohio.
In this interview, we talked about:
*** How she got involved into making "Super 8"
*** J.J. Abrams' top-secret "Super 8" script!
*** The writer-director allowed Fanning and the other child actors of the movie to create their own super 8 zombie film
*** How she bonded with her male co-stars
*** Does she believe in UFO?
*** Why you have to watch "Super 8?"
*** Super 8 the camera!
*** The cool vintage 1970s outfits!
Transcripts / Production notes / Scripts
In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth - something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.
