The Broken Earth
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Sam Raimi spoke to Collider about how he maintained an “improvisational” tone on the set of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
It’s always an improvisation, just to begin with, so I don’t even think of it like [a specific choice]. The actor brings what they bring. That’s their improv. It’s what the role is. Granted, Scott Derrickson set up a very very strong foundation with great characters and story and visuals with Benedict Cumberbatch, but nevertheless, it’s a new story. Every time the actor steps in front of the camera, everyone’s making everything from scratch. So just for me, because that’s my point of view, another improvisation, a different take, something unexpected, something thrown at the actor for them to respond to live on camera is exciting. It’s just a continuation of that same process.
Rob Zombie shared more photos of the newly-constructed 1313 Mockingbird Lane on Instagram.
