Peter Dinklage is Del, the last man on Earth… or is he? The ‘Game of Thrones’ star’s next project is science fiction drama ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ due for release in September. Directed by Reed Morano ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ has already won the “U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Excellence in Filmmaking” award and was nominated for the Grand Jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival. The script was written by Mike Makowski (‘Take Me’).
Morano may be best known for her TV work, on ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ (for which she won the Emmy Award), ‘Billions’ and ‘Halt and Catch Fire’. Her previous film, ‘Meadowland’ was also a winner and nominee for numerous independent film festival awards. She is currently shooting ‘The Rhythm Section’ starring Jude Law, Sterling K. Brown and Blake Lively.
Discussing this film, Morano said:
“I like the post-apocalyptic genre, but it’s been done a million times, and I was looking for something a little bit weird, or just a little bit different tonally. I saw this opportunity to tell a post-apocalyptic story that breaks a lot of the conventions of storytelling in that genre.
“I really appreciate any time a story can be told with visuals or sound rather than straight dialogue. This is the perfect film to do that.”
In ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ Dinklage spends his days wandering his now empty town after everyone else vanished. He seems content in his solitude, but a sudden arrival, Grace played by Elle Fanning, changes everything. What does Del do when Grace refuses to leave? The cast also includes Paul Giamatti and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
Strangely enough, while every other movie under the sun has a trailer set to a slowed-down, spooky cover version of a classic pop song, for whatever reason, Morano and her team missed the golden opportunity to set the trailer for ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ to a slowed-down, spooky cover version of Tiffany’s classic mall pop song of the same name. But try to enjoy it anyway:
‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ arrives in theaters on September 21.
