New Interview of Dakota with Yahoo Movies


Feature film shoots are generally described as marathons rather than sprints, so imagine doubling the distance to the finish line by filming two movies back-to-back. That’s the race Dakota Johnson is in the middle of running now. Since February, the 26-year-old actress—well versed in the Hollywood grind, given the acting careers of her parents, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, and her grandmother, Tippi Hedren—has been working on both sequels to the 2015 hit, Fifty Shades of Grey, based on the blockbuster trilogy of erotic novels by E L James. For Fifty Shades Darker (scheduled for February 2017) and Fifty Shades Free(February 2018), Johnson is returning to the role of Anastasia Steele, the innocent college girl who gets involved in a less-than-innocent sexual relationship with mysterious billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). “It really is a marathon, and I don’t see the end,” Johnson tells Yahoo Movies. “But hopefully I’ll see it soon! It’s going really well.”

Johnson’s upbeat description of life on set runs counter to some of the earlier bad buzz surrounding the sequels. In the wake of the first Fifty Shades’ massive success, James made it clear that she wanted to assert more control over the screenplays for Darker andFree. That may or may not have contributed to Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson’s decision not to return, paving the way for James Foley (whose credits include Glengarry Glen Ross and Fear) to step behind the camera for the two follow-up films. 

Meanwhile, rumors swirled that Johnson and Dornan’s onscreen chemistry didn’t exactly translate offscreen, and both actors sought significant bumps in salary to continue their characters’ romance. But the dust has since settled, and production on the films is chugging along, with everyone seemingly in good humor. Speaking of good humor, Johnson confirms that the sequels will leave room for some of the (intentional) laughter found in the first movie, such as the amusing contract negotiation scene between Anastasia and Christian. “We’re trying to figure out the best way to level out all the emotional aspects of the story, as well as the comedic notes,” Johnson says. “Hopefully, these films will be funny—that’s what I appreciate about them.”

Before embarking on her Fifty Shades marathon, Johnson was fortunate to receive an exotic vacation, of sorts, courtesy of her new film, A Bigger Splash, which is expanding to more theaters after its limited release on May 6. Loosely adapted from the late ’60s European psychosexual drama, La Piscine, the movie required Johnson to journey to the picturesque Italian island of Pantelleria, nestled in the Mediterranean Sea. And she didn’t make the trip alone: Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, and Matthias Schoenaerts were her traveling companions, under the guiding eye of their director, Luca Guadagnino.

"A Bigger Splash" Writer David Kajganich talk about Dakota


[...]

Obviously Tilda is a rocker in this movie and Ralph has got his record producing background, but Penelope, she has also has a sort of rocker vibe to her, she’s very apathetic. What were you trying to build in there?

KAJGANICH: To me, what’s interesting about Penelope is she’s learning this language from Harry, this kind of provoking, pitiless language she has with the world. And is trying that on for size because she sees how it benefits him. What I love about the way that Dakota played that character is that she really understood that whole role as a performance and we only get one moment where we see her face and it’s not performing for anyone anymore. What was written into the part was the intentionality of that character as always wanting to fuck with someone. And always trying to tweak the story to amuse herself. And it’s such a dangerous way to play with the world and I think she played it really well.

There is this fantastic element to her too, where in the original film she is sort of this unrealized, simple ingenue. But she’s written in this as a woman who is very clearly trying to be that ingenue, the uncomplicated, not self-aware ingenue of the first film.

KAJGANICH: It was all of these things were a collaboration with the actors, we did a lot of one on one rehearsal and group rehearsal. It was exciting to write a character who is really performing the whole time. You can sort of guess what she’s after, but she’s very smart and gone a lot without guidance. She absorbs different kinds of influences in a way that’s very unfiltered. She’s like a sponge, a postmodern sponge. And I think her new interest is this guy Harry who has this very weird way of provoking in the world.

Ralph Fiennes mentions Dakota with Collider


[...]

I was wondering if we could talk about Harry’s relationship with his daughter, sometimes it almost feels as if he’s ignoring her, as though she’s a new toy he’s gotten or something like that.

FIENNES: I didn’t feel that he was ignoring her so much as just he feels quite at ease in her company. But again, that’s another, they’ve just met, they’ve been traveling a bit. He loves how cool she is, how independent. He’s kind of intrigued by her. I think Harry’s the sort of guy who will feel someone’s energy quite quickly and he’s learned not to be over-attentive to Penelope and I think he sees that she is a sexual young creature and part of him is intrigued by that, but I don’t think he’s trying to sleep with her or anything like that. I think he’s sort of learning who she is, this new creature who is his daughter but also because he’s never experienced her as a child or as a baby, I would imagine that’s quite a weird one, if you suddenly, “Here is your daughter as a result of a fling you had years ago,” and this potent young woman enters the room. It’s probably a bit of a mind fuck. And how do you deal with that? I think Harry’s dealing with it quite well. I think they have a bond. There’s a couple of moments, I love working with Dakota, and again, I think we fell into a dynamic that I thought was quite right. They’re at peace with each other, and I think, what surprises Harry is that he’s quite protective of her. So, possibly hypocritically, but his feelings of anger that Paul might have slept with her, I find that very believable.

So much of what both of these characters are putting out is sort of sheathed in posturing or secrecy, how open do you think they were with one another?

FIENNES: I think, what Penelope and Harry? I think they are learning who each other is They’ve found a friendship, that’s what I’ve always thought. Despite knowing they are father and daughter, they are finding something. I think she’s, she’s a quite interesting character because some characters can see through adults’ bullshit. I think she sees through Harry’s bullshit. But also sees that he’s, you know, I can’t speak for Dakota. But I always felt that she wasn’t repulsed by Harry. She strikes me, as some young teenagers are, very canny about adult behavior. I think she’s like that, they see all the pretense and the posturing of adults. And I think she sees all that. I think she’s a really cool character, really.

New "A Bigger Splash" Cast Interview with LA Times

Just as the dynamics among the characters are a mix of ages and temperaments, so too did the cast itself include a mix of experience and backgrounds. For Johnson, the young American actress best known for her work in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" adaptation, the chance to work with actors such as Swinton and Fiennes was an opportunity she couldn't pass up.

"I've never worked with anyone like Ralph, he's such a classically trained actor," Johnson said. "He has a real process, it was like watching some sort of athlete warm up. It was bizarre to me because I kind of fly by the seat of my pants in this industry, and I have zero training and no background."

The two share a sultry barroom karaoke duet on the song "Unforgettable" that dances along the line of inappropriate for a man and his daughter, even if they have only recently met. The preparations for the scene further highlighted the difference in how they both work.

"I was like, 'Oh, it will be like karaoke, we'll just kind of do it on the day and see what happens and try to do our best and they'll fix it in post,'" Johnson said. "But he had a vocal coach come to the island to work with the both of us and a dance coach to figure out how we should move our bodies. It was hilarious to me, and also amazing and so helpful."

New Interview of the "A Bigger Splash" Cast /& Director with The New York Times


-Dakota's part is almost at the end-

Midway through “A Bigger Splash,” the latest hedonistic trip from the Italian director Luca Guadagnino, Ralph Fiennes’s character, Harry, puts on the Rolling Stones’ “Emotional Rescue” album and starts to dance. His shoulders twitch, his body flails, and in a sort of drunken ritual set in the middle of a luxurious vacation home on an island off the coast of Sicily, he tears through the house, his awkward movements getting bigger and more daring — the music propelling him into a state of almost fearsome abandon.

It is a climactic scene for Harry and the other characters in a film in which the body and its capacity to revel in all the senses — be it through music, food, sex or the heat of volcanic rocks — are pushed to the extreme.

Based loosely on the 1969 French New Wave thriller “La Piscine,” or the “The Swimming Pool,” the movie, which opened May 4, stars Mr. Fiennes as an outlandish music producer and the ex-lover of Marianne Lane, played by Tilda Swinton. A rock star in the vein of Chrissie Hynde or David Bowie, Marianne has had surgery on her vocal cords and has traveled to the remote island of Pantelleria to recuperate with her current boyfriend, Paul, a much younger filmmaker (Matthias Schoenaerts). But when Harry and his recently discovered daughter, Penelope (a Lolita-esque Dakota Johnson), pay an unexpected visit, much sex, emotional tussling and intrigue ensue on a vacation that goes violently awry.

With the migrant crisis looming in the background, the brutal natural beauty of the island becomes a sort of fifth character. But music, particularly by the Stones, also plays an outsize role. “I wanted to create a movie that is rooted in the nostalgic world of rock ’n’ roll,” Mr. Guadagnino said by phone, explaining that Marianne, Paul, Harry and his daughter “are the last to enjoy the freedom of the rock ’n’ roll revolution, a revolution that was about endless enjoyment, it was meant to never finish. So what happens when the party ends? Or when one person doesn’t want it to?”

The film’s debut at the Venice Film Festival last year was notably contentious — booed by some Italian viewers who were reportedly displeased with the depiction of a star-struck local police detective but largely impressing English-language critics. There was “something fitting about that divided response,” A. O. Scott of The New York Times wrote, since the film “is about foreigners behaving badly on Italian soil.”

Befitting a film about four strong but very different characters, Mr. Guadagnino and his stars each brought ideas to the project that somehow melded into what The Guardian has called “a chamber piece of sexual tension.”

Studiocanal approached Mr. Guadagnino, who is probably best known in the United States for the lush romance “I Am Love” (2010), also starring Ms. Swinton, about remaking “La Piscine” as part of an effort to give new life to works in its extensive library. As Ron Halpern, Studiocanal’s executive vice president for international production, explained the thinking: The film “was very iconic but something very pure: four people in a beautiful spot and someone is going to die. Wouldn’t it be interesting to see a new version of that movie today?” (Fox Searchlight is distributing the film in the United States.)
