The post Interview: Luke Hemsworth Talks WESTWORLD Season 2 appeared first on Daily Dead.

If you happened to miss the first season finale of HBO’s hit series Westworld, the most succinct way to summarize all of the goings-on would be to say that the proverbial poop has hit the fan, leaving the eponymous park in a state of uproar, completely changing the landscape of the show heading into season 2, which begins on April 22nd at 9:00pm EST.

During a recent press day, Daily Dead had the chance to speak briefly with actor Luke Hemsworth, who plays security agent Stubbs on Westworld, and he discussed how his character deals with the new power struggle in the park, how the series has made him take an introspective look at the concept of what it means to be human, the thrill and challenges of keeping Westworld’s secrets, and more.

[SPOILER WARNING: While nothing too in-depth about season 2 of Westworld is discussed below, some of this interview delves into the events of season 1. So, for those who haven’t watched it, consider this a warning that there might be some items below that could be considered spoilers.]

Did you feel like from season 1 you had a handle on who this guy was, and how did that get upended with where things are heading into season 2?

Luke Hemsworth: Yeah, for sure, this show is constantly evolving. It's constantly evolving up until the night before you're shooting, so to say you have a handle on it is kind of true, but not really [laughs], so I think we've got to be very flexible more than anything, and just know your shit, basically. But yeah, I get to do a lot of really cool stuff, so it's a progression, and there's a definite through line there. I'm trying not to say too much, though [laughs].

We were able to screen the first episode of this season, and without spoilers, where do you see Stubbs fitting into everything? The park is in chaos, and you have these other factors, too, that seem to have a bearing on how everything with the hosts is being handled.

Luke Hemsworth: Stubbs has always been, or the way I always played him, was that he was very humane, and he was not a torturer, and did not enjoy any of this sadistic stuff. He was a worker who would get stuff done, but didn't take any pleasure in any of the pain, so he’s very empathetic. I found it more interesting to play him that way, because I feel like every other human in the park is a complete asshole, so there's got to be a ray of sunshine here somewhere and some hope for our species. So, hopefully Stubbs is that hope [laughs].

This show definitely dives into the ideas of identity and humanity, and what the human condition really is. And I'm curious, for you now being a part of this show for two seasons, how has that made you question your own humanity or identity in this world? Or maybe it hasn't.

Luke Hemsworth: Oh no, I definitely question it every day. It’s funny, because I think I'm quite a positive person, and the show examines the human race’s propensity towards violence. That was jarring for me, the fact that something that people really respond to is violence. Our stories have this unique nature to them, where these characters are able to hurt things and are mainly doing horrendous acts to these creatures who are able to simulate emotion or pain. And just because they simulate it, does that mean that it’s not real? And if you know that and you still do it, then what does that say about you?

The show has raised a lot of dark questions in terms of what we do when there are no consequences, and it's a little depressing. We examine a lot of dark things, but maybe by shining a light on the dark stuff, it shows that we are evolving and that we can continue to evolve.

Because there is a lot of secrecy around Westworld, from your perspective, is there a thrill to sometimes not having all the answers to all the questions, because you can immerse yourself in the journey of the story, too?

Luke Hemsworth: I think so, because it teaches you to let go of control. You have to completely trust the directors, and I think if Jonathan [Nolan, executive producer] wasn't as good as he is, and as articulate and smart as he is, then it would be another question. He's just a wealth of knowledge, he answers your questions until he gets tired of them, and he knows exactly what he wants. When you're in the hands of someone like that, then it’s much easier to let go. I'm a minor character, so I imagine the stuff that I'm given is very different to what Evan [Rachel Wood] and Jeffrey [Wright] are given. But it’s all very exciting to watch unfold.

From a production standpoint, Westworld is clearly one of the most ambitious shows that's currently running on TV these days, and we’ve only seen just a few parts of this park so far. We’ve seen some hints that there’s so much more out there, and I was wondering if there’s anything you can tell us about just how much bigger all this will get?

Luke Hemsworth: Yeah, Westworld is really huge. I never realized how huge it was when we first started on the show, and they definitely delve into that a lot deeper this season. There’s obviously the Shogun World that has been talked about, but that’s just one part of the park, so it’s all mind bogglingly cool.

A writer, director, and producer with a passion for creating atmospheric tension and relatable characters on screen, Deon Taylor has stayed busy behind the camera in recent years, with several thrillers coming out in the near future. With his latest film, Traffik, being released in theaters this Friday, Daily Dead had the pleasure of catching up with Taylor for our latest Q&A feature, in which the filmmaker discusses the real-life horrors that inspired his new movie, the film's ambitious shooting schedule that included 87 setups in one day, and the launch of his new production label Dark Circus, which will be the home of the new horror anthology series The Thrill that he's developing with Snoop Dog.

Thanks for taking the time to answer questions for us, Deon! Congratulations on your new movie, Traffik. How and when did you first come up with the idea for this film?

Deon Taylor: The way that I came up with the idea for the film Traffik, there were letters being sent to me as a parent for my 12-year-old daughter to be aware and alert of traffickers. Kids were being trafficked in my area and the local mall. As I researched more about what was going on in the area, I became completely blown away by what I found and how gigantic and rapid this epidemic was—not only around my area, but domestically and across the globe. This was what originally inspired me to write the screenplay. I started from there, writing the project.

Human and sex trafficking is a very real issue in the United States right now, adding another layer of relevance to your new movie. Did you do any research on those issues when you were writing the screenplay?

Deon Taylor: While writing the screenplay, I did a ton of research, because I was not aware of how prominent this was in my community, let alone domestically in the US. A lot of the research that I did was really about reading articles on trafficking and how it works. Reading about legislation. Reading about the different programs being built and trying to understand why we are not doing more when people are being enslaved. Millions of people are being enslaved domestically and so a lot of research went into the film while writing it.

There is a lot of action in a lot of different locations in Traffik, including some memorable scenes on the road, the woods, and a mountain estate. What was it like for you and your cast and crew to bring this story to life in so many diverse settings?

Deon Taylor: While making the film, one of the biggest things I wanted to do was make the locations become a character in the film as well. The locations that we were at: the forest, the gas station, the house, the cabin—I wanted to have the audience be able to take the ride, but also see that these locations were just as important as the actors because they were built for you to feel the tension of being there on screen with the actor, so it was extremely important. Working with Paula, Omar, Roselyn, and Laz is probably one of the most dynamic things I've been able to do as a filmmaker—blending their amazing talents to these amazing locations and just putting them in the right light. Making sure that the tension around Traffik was built the correct way,is something that we were set on doing when we first started out.

What was the most challenging or rewarding scene to shoot in Traffik?

Deon Taylor: The most rewarding scene for me was the bathroom. I had thought about that moment for a long time in terms of how Paula Patton's character would meet Dawn Olivieri's character in the bathroom. I had written a whole bunch of things to say and ultimately I ended up having them not say anything. I thought it was more powerful if you saw visually that something was wrong and visually how she was so scared that she couldn't even utter a word in fear of someone hearing her. I just thought that was a powerful moment of cinema, where it was just about looking and staring in the eyes. That was one of the most rewarding scenes for me.

When you look back at your time on set while filming Traffik, is there a favorite or funny moment in particular that stands out?

Deon Taylor: I think the funniest moment while filming the movie for me was the cabin scene. [Cinematographer] Dante Spinotti is 74 years old. I'm 40. We had a night where we did 87 setups in one night and I just remember looking at Dante while we were shooting, and it was an 18-hour day, and I'm like, "Oh my God, I hope this man can make it." Not only did he make it, but we sat on the porch afterwards and he smoked a cigar. I drank an orange juice and we laughed for another hour. I just remember thinking to myself, "This is the coolest dude I know," and that was probably the funniest moment.

Were you inspired or influenced by any other home invasion thrillers when you were making Traffik?

Deon Taylor: Yeah, I was influenced by The Vanishing and influenced also by David Fincher's Se7en.

In addition to Traffik, you have several other movies coming up, including Motivated Seller, starring Dennis Quaid, Meagan Good, and Michael Ealy. What can you tell us about that movie?

Deon Taylor: The new movie Motivated Seller is much more of a commercial psychological thriller. Dennis Quaid is absolutely amazing! I would go on record to say I feel like this is probably one of Dennis Quaid's top ten best performances of all time... to me. He's brilliant. He's canny. He's smart. He's funny and ultimately his character is uber-scary. The movie follows a couple that moves from San Francisco to Napa to buy a house, and he is the person selling the house. There are some very, very odd things that begin to happen after he sells the house, so this is a very good one that I'm really excited about.

You recently launched the production label Dark Circus, and you’re teaming up with Snoop Dog for a new anthology series The Thrill. What are you excited for viewers to experience with The Thrill and other upcoming projects at Dark Circus?

Deon Taylor: With Dark Circus, what I wanted to do was create a label that could be completely driven by using a minority cast—black, Latino, Asian, Indian, it doesn't matter. Being able to create a lane for a vehicle where it doesn't have to be an all-white film or all-black film, but a multi-ethnic film. I feel like Dark Circus is that. It would be the first label where you could have a white lead and a black lead. This would be the norm. It'll never be just one, because I wanted to create something where it looks like the world. I wanted to make a label that could speak to every audience, so when I look out of the window or go to the mall, I see everybody. I see all shades of color and with Dark Circus, I wanted it to be the first label that would specifically look to cast movies that way.

You’ve been involved with a lot of horror projects over the years, and you really seem to have a passion for the genre. Did you grow up watching a lot of horror movies? Do you have any favorite films in the genre that you still revisit today?

Deon Taylor: My favorite horror movie of all time is the movie Event Horizon with Laurence Fishburne. It still scares the hell out of me.

With Traffik coming out nationwide in the US on April 20th from Lionsgate and CodeBlack, are there any other upcoming projects you’d like to mention? Where can our readers go online to keep up to date on your work?

Deon Taylor: My next project is a movie called .38. I'm going to shoot an LA drama thriller set in the world of South Central LA—one night, one .38 caliber gun. You follow it over the course of 24 hours. Myself and Dante Spinotti will be back together, which is a blessing. I am excited to now explore visually what it would feel like to be a black police officer in South Central LA during the heightened time of Black Lives Matters and seeing police officers embroiled in violence against young African Americans and kids. This movie is going to be a really, really fun movie to make, but also a movie that I feel like will have the same energy and wind as Traffik.

A few familiar faces and a whole lot of new ones were featured on the season 4 premiere episode of Fear The Walking Dead, and after discussing The Walking Dead Season 8 finale, The Walking Dead ’Cast co-host Jason is back behind the microphones (this time joined by Lucy) to share his thoughts on the new direction for The Walking Dead companion series.

The Walking Dead ’Cast Episode 305: "It's a Fear-the-Walking-Dead reset, and it's very different! A Morgan-centric, slower-paced, character-focused zombie Western of sorts. And we quite liked it! Join Jason and new FTWD cohost Lucy as we tell you why.

If you've ever watched the Colonial Marines fight Xenomorphs in Aliens and thought, "I'd like to try that," then you're in for a treat this Alien Day (April 26th), because Pure Imagination Studios and FoxNext Destinations are teaming up for a new virtual reality experience called Alien: Descent that brings you to the frontlines in a fight against everything from clingy Facehuggers to acidic Xenomorphs.

Alien: Descent will open in Orange County on April 26th, with more locations to be revealed soon. In case you missed it, check out our previous Alien Day coverage here, and read on for the official press release with full details:

Press Release: LOS ANGELES, CA (April 18, 2018) – Pure Imagination Studios and FoxNext Destinations will open ALIEN: DESCENT, a cutting-edge free-roaming virtual reality experience at The Outlets at Orange in Orange County on April 26. Additional locations will be announced soon. Tickets can be reserved now at AlienDescent.com.

Set in the ALIEN universe, guests join an elite squad of Colonial Marines sent to investigate a distress signal from a Weyland-Yutani mining outpost. Just before losing contact, the facility reported a mysterious infestation. It’s up to the guests and their squad to contain the threat, quarantine any survivors and get everyone to safety. While on the mission, guests move freely through the immersive space battling aliens, ranging from face-huggers to full-grown Xenomorphs.

ALIEN: DESCENT features a first-of-its-kind wireless technology developed by Pure Imagination Studios. The technology allows up to four guests to move about freely in VR, without the use of PC backpacks or wires. Each guest is armed with a custom-designed weapon and motion-tracking sensors on their arms and legs. Environmental effects, motion platforms and other surprises that simulate the descent into the heart of the Alien threat enhance the experience.

“ALIEN: DESCENT’s story-first approach is at the forefront of the location-based VR experiences that we’re rolling out. Our goal at Pure Imagination Studios has always been to push the boundaries of what’s possible — VR attractions are the perfect medium to do just that. Partnering with the forward-thinking team at FoxNext made for a potent combination of storytelling minds and innovative thinking to set a new benchmark for destination entertainment,” said Joshua Wexler, co-founder of Pure Imagination Studios.

“VR attractions bring together immersive entertainment with social experiences that can’t be replicated in the living room. The rich storytelling opportunities in the Alien universe makes it a perfect fit for cutting-edge destination entertainment. Plus, who doesn’t want to battle Xenomorphs and save the world?” said Salil Mehta, president of FoxNext.

“We're thrilled to allow guests the freedom to experience and engage in VR without the need of a cumbersome backpack.  The dream is to allow guests to fully immerse themselves, let loose, and have fun,” said Rob Taylor, co-creator of the experience from Pure Imagination Studios.

ALIEN: DESCENT opens April 26, ALIEN Day, at the Outlets at Orange. Tickets can be reserved at AlienDescent.com. The Outlets at Orange is located at the intersection of I-5 and State Highways 22 and 57 in Orange, California. More information can be found at simon.com/mall/the-outlets-at-orange.

ALIEN DAY returns on April 26, 2018 for an epic third annual global celebration of the iconic sci-fi franchise. ALIEN DAY is a nod to planet LV-426 from the landmark ALIEN film. For more information on all ALIEN DAY activities go to AlienUniverse.com.

Prehistoric mayhem runs rampant over the modern world in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom's final trailer before it's released in theaters this summer.

Stomping into theaters on June 22nd, 2018 via Universal Studios, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Justice Smith, James Cromwell, BD Wong, Ted Levine, Rafe Spall, Toby Jones, and Jeff Goldblum.

Watch the new trailer and read the official synopsis below, and check here for the latest update on the third Jurassic World movie.

"It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Stars Pratt and Howard return alongside executive producers Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. They are joined by co-stars James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall and Isabella Sermon, while BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles.

Directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible), the epic action-adventure is written by Jurassic World’s director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, Derek Connolly. Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again partner with Spielberg and Trevorrow in leading the filmmakers for this stunning installment. Belén Atienza joins the team as a producer."

They defeated It when they were kids, but the Losers' Club will have to face the ancient entity again as adults in IT: Chapter Two, and following recent potential casting reveals for the sequel, a new cinematographer is reportedly on board for the anticipated film.

Collider reports that Checco Varese will be the cinematographer for IT: Chapter Two. Chung-hoon Chung (2003's Oldboy, The Handmaiden) served as the director of photography on the first IT film, but as Collider points out, director Andy Muschietti could be looking for a different visual style in the sequel, which will take place around 27 years after the 1989-set first film, with the Losers' Club inevitably returning to their hometown of Derry to face the return of It, aka Pennywise. This change in visual style is also reflected with The Shape of Water production designer Paul Austerberry coming on board for the IT sequel (Claude Paré was the production designer on 2017's IT).

In addition to the upcoming IT sequel, Varese is no stranger to the world of horror, having worked on the TV pilot episodes for The Strain, True Blood, and Locke & Key, the lattermost of which was directed by Muschietti.

On the sequel's casting side, Variety previously reported that Bill Hader is in early talks to play the wisecracking Richie Tozier in IT: Chapter Two, while James McAvoy is in discussions to play an adult Bill Denbrough, who lost his little brother Georgie to It one fateful rainy day in his childhood.

Set nearly three decades after the 1989-set IT and based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, the sequel is expected to begin filming this summer in Toronto, with Andy Muschietti returning as director.

Variety previously reported that Jessica Chastain (Molly's Game, Mama, Zero Dark Thirty, Interstellar) was in early negotiations to play Beverly Marsh in the IT sequel, and according to Variety's latest report, it looks like she is still on board (at least at the negotiations stage).

Beverly was played by Sophia Lillis in 2017's IT, while Richie and Bill were played by Finn Wolfhard and Jaeden Lieberher, respectively. A story of strong friendships, strained families, and unimaginable horrors, IT (2017) follows a young group of outcasts known as the Losers' Club as they team up to face a manipulative force known as It that resurfaces every 27 years in their small town of Derry to feed on human flesh marinated by fear. The 2017 IT film was the second adaptation of King's epic 1986 novel (following the iconic Tim Curry performance in the 1990 miniseries adaptation) and raked in more than $700 million around the globe.

Gary Dauberman, who worked on the screenplay for the first IT movie and is also creating the script for an Are You Afraid of the Dark? movie, is writing the screenplay for New Line Cinema's IT: Chapter Two, which is slated for a September 6th, 2019 release from Warner Bros.

Bill Skarsgård is expected to reprise his role as Pennywise (one of It's favorite forms) in the sequel, and there could potentially be flashback scenes with the young cast of the first movie, although it's not yet confirmed if those will take place. We'll keep Daily Dead readers updated as more news is announced.

Even though we'll have to wait a while before re-entering the Upside Down, there is still plenty to get excited about when it comes to the small town of Hawkins. A Stranger Things maze was recently announced for Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood, Orlando, and Singapore, and now two new additions to the cast have been announced.

Netflix revealed that Cary Elwes will play Hawkins Mayor Kline in season 3 of Stranger Things. "Handsome, slick, and sleazy," Kline has been described as being a "classic 80s politician" who is "more concerned with his own image than with the people of the small town he governs."

Jake Busey, who will co-star in the new Predator movie, is also coming on board to play "a journalist for the The Hawkins Post with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor."

Elwes and Busey join the cast of surviving characters from the first two seasons, as well as fellow newcomer to the show, Maya Thurman-Hawke, who will play Robin, "an alternative girl who is equal parts sharp and playful. Bored with her mundane day job, she just wants a little excitement in her life… and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins."

A premiere date and further plot details have yet to be announced, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on more casting info as it comes in. What do you think of the new additions to the cast?
