TIFF 2021: ”It was a crime to not have him on camera as an actor because he’s so good,“ writer/director Justine Bateman tells TheWrap
She added: “There was a lot that the voice said in the film that Olivia when we were shooting was not aware would be in the scene.”
Bateman said that she approached Theroux for the job but that her brother, “Ozark” actor Jason Bateman, helped “put in a good word” for her.
“[Justin is] such an incredible writer, director, and an actor,” she said. “It was kind of a crime not to have him on camera as an actor because he’s so good.”
Bateman wrote and directed the film that also stars Luke Bracey, Dennis Boutsikaris, Erica Ash and Todd Stashwick.
