In an interview with ComicBook, Chloe Zhao revealed that in addition to directing, he was also responsible for the script for the film “The Eternals”.
“I wrote the screenplay for ‘The Eternals’, the credits just haven’t been updated yet. I don’t know what it would be like if I didn’t write the scripts for the films I make. It’s during the writing process that I bring my sensitivity, and that’s a big part of the process.
She adds: “I create situations that will allow me to add a cinematic language that I learned from my last three films.”
Previously, the filmmaker provoked audiences by saying that he intended to make an even bigger show than ‘Avengers: Endgame’.
“I’m making this movie not just as a filmmaker, but as a huge Marvel fan. Ever since I was thrown in the direction I thought, ‘How can we get past what we saw in’ Avengers: Endgame ‘? This is what I want to offer the public, a spectacle worthy of what has been built so far, ”she said.
She also explained that she makes a point of working with a diverse cast and how important that would be to the plot and viewers:
“We live in a completely diverse world and I wanted the film to reflect that world. The cast had to be a bunch of misfits, I didn’t want athletes and models, you know? I think it will be very rewarding if someone comes out of the theater saying, “This guy or that girl looks like me”. “The Eternals” is about the individuality of each person, physically and emotionally.
Scheduled for November 2021, the film follows the journeys of nearly immortal beings, products of the evolutionary divergence that gave birth to the human race millennia ago. The characters relate to several concepts already introduced in previous universe films, from Celestials (who appeared in “ Guardians of the Galaxy ”) to Thanos, whose own mother was one of his victims.
The cast includes Angelina Jolie (Thena), Salma Hayek (Ajak), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari), Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos), Lia McHugh (Sprite), Don Lee (Gilgamesh), Gemma Chan (Sersi) ), Kit Harington (Dark Knight), Barry Kheogan (Druig) and Richard Madden (Ikaris).
