The director of wake talks about miley’s role in the movie

Posted on: January 11, 2011

 Screenwriter Christopher Landon (Disturbia, Paranormal Activity 2) spoke with Shock Till You Drop today about his directorial debut, the horror anthology Burning Palms and updated us on the status of his next script, Wake, a supernatural thriller based on the book series by Lisa McMann.

“It’s sort of a vehicle for Miley Cyrus,” Landon says, “She is looking to sort of get out of her cutesy Hannah Montana image, which she’s actually doing quite well. She wanted to do something a little edgier and a little darker, so we’re making this movie hopefully…It’s about a teenage girl who has a rare form of narcalepsy. When she’s within a certain distance of someone sleeping, she passes out and goes into their dreams.”

Though the source material is young adult fare, Landon says that both it and the film version don’t fall far from the horror genre.

“It definitely has a spooky element to it,” he says, ” It’s slightly origin-story-esque… She sees it as a curse. You know, something that she keeps very secret and hidden and, as a result, has sort of isolated herself. Then, through circumstance she ends up having to embrace it. She has to use it to solve a crime, if you will. It’s fun. We get to really play with the visual kind of thing. It’s not like ‘Inception’ where it’s very consistent because we’re going in and out of so many different people’s dreams and nobody dreams alike. Some of it will be animated. Some of it will be really, really big with epic-looking stuff. And sometimes she lands in a dream where absolutely fucking nothing is happening which, you know, is very true to life.”
