Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton Talk ‘Vanishing on 7th Street’

Posted by admin with 3 Comments

If you’re not afraid of the dark now, you just might be after seeing ‘Vanishing on 7th Street.’ The new post-apocalyptic thriller by director Brad Anderson (‘The Machinist’) stars Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton, John Leguizamo and newcomer Jacob Latimore as a group of survivors trying to figure out how to sustain themselves in a world where everyone has inexplicably vanished.

This is a pretty unusual concept. What was your reaction when you first saw the script?
Newton: I really liked how spare the script was. And you could tell straight away that it wasn’t going to be looking for shocks and thrills. It was much more a kind of meditation on fear and -

Christensen: And death.

Newton: Yeah, and death. And it would rely heavily on what the actors brought to it, which I thought was… you don’t get those very often.

Did you have any idea about how you were going to get into character and approach it?
Christensen: What I liked about the script was the containment of it and how that would allow for real character exploration. We spent a lot of time in that bar. Just Thandie, John, Jacob and myself. And it really felt like we were putting on a play.

Newton: We had lots of night shoots in the freezing cold. It was like an endurance test. We had a lot of stuff to get through, so it was also everyone very keen to get the work done. So there almost wasn’t time to think about how cold it was. I love all of that.

Christensen: I think it also lends itself to the work. The nature of having to make a movie in such tough conditions in such a short period of time gave us all this sort of frantic feeling that we’re just trying to keep up with in the movie.

Film shot in Detroit debuts at Toronto film festival
Toronto (WXYZ) - Hollywood traveled to Toronto for the 35th annual Toronto International Film Festival and Sunday night it was all about the cast of ‘Vanishing on 7th Street’.

Parts of the movie were shot at Channel 7!

Everyone came out for the big night, including actors Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton and Jacob Latimore.

Director Brad Anderson was thrilled to have shot the movie in Detroit.

He says, “The fact that we were able to close down entire blocks of the city and empty it of people and it’s cars and make it feel like an empty city, I don’t think we could’ve done that anywhere else.”

The movie is scheduled for an early 2011 release date. Story and Pictures by Erin Nicole at the Source

Pictures can be seen in the gallery, along with a few new HQ additions.

All Pumped Up for Horror

Posted by admin with Comments Off

Toronto Notebook: Thandie Newton & Hayden Christensen, All Pumped Up for Horror
Though they’re stalking the red carpet for Toronto’s Midnight Madness program with the creepy Vanishing on 7th Street, Thandie Newton and Hayden Christensen both have happy memories of Toronto.

Christensen also has a strong affinity for Toronto. “I grew up here, so this is home. I don’t get to spend an awful lot of time here, but I feel like I’m a true Torontonian at heart, so it’s nice that we have such a great festival here. The city really comes alive for it.”

Alive is good. Which brings us to the two stars’ film, Vanishing on 7th Street, where remaining among the living is a tricky business. A creepy low-budget horror film from director Brad Anderson, Vanishing is a spooky end-times scenario where nearly everyone has disappeared, shadows move with a life of their own and darkness comes on ready to kill.

As Christensen says, “I enjoy a good scare. But [Vanishing on 7th Street], for me, sort of goes beyond the genre and allows an audience to not be so overly manipulated and really kind of think about what they’re watching. This is my type of horror film.”

How do Newton and Christensen maintain their energy for extensive freak-out scenes of emotional intensity and terror? Newton laughs: “Emergen-C packets.” Christensen, linking motion and emotion, explains his method for madness: “Lots of pushups right before you shoot.” Newton agrees: “I was always jogging up and down on the spot. It helped.” Read All ?
