Representing an artistic experiment from director Mark Pellington (Arlington Road, The Mothman Prophecies), I Melt with You challenged its cast to blend improvisation with screenwriter Glenn Porter’s script, turning out hours of intensely-performed footage that was culled for the final cut.
Thomas Jane, Rob Lowe, Jeremy Piven and Christian McKay star as four college friends who, once a year, meet up in Big Sur. Now in their forties, their lives have all taken them in separate directions and the tensions between one another begin to reveal as their drug-fueled weekend progresses to dangerous extremes.
ComingSoon.net spoke with Pellington, Jane, Lowe and Piven about the unique acting, editing and writing tactics employed to bring the film to the big screen. Check out the video interviews below and catch I Melt with You in a limited release this Friday, December 9th.
