Working with your partner is a different experience for different people delightful for some, skippable
for the others.
But mixing personal and professional worked out great for Alison Brie. While working with her husband and first-time director Dave Franco for The Rental.
The actress says she fell in love with him all over again…now that’s romantic.
Talking about the time when Dave was working on the script of the film, Alison Brie shares that,
“The first time we had conversations about The Rental were long. I knew that I would be involved in the film and it was very inspiring to me to watch Dave write. I have never seen him so excited about something and first I kinda got to hear the idea and why he felt so strongly about it and how he wanted to do it.
Then I got to read the very first draft of the script and read another draft and sort of watch. It get better and better and watch him kinda hone in on his ideas. The characters and things like that. I think when he asked me to be in it. The thing I felt first was, so glad that I was going to get to be there for him, for his first time directing, to witness it.”
Adding more to her experience of being directed by her husband, she says,
“And, you know, on set as an actor, if you don’t trust your director, that can be a really scary space, right? But obviously I trust Dave more than anyone. So I couldn’t have had more faith in what he was going to do. And then it just got to be a fun treat for me to watch him on set and watch him flourish in this new way. And to watch him interact with everybody on our crew. How much they were kind of like falling in love with him. And then I was like falling in love with him all over again. It was very romantic.”
Alongside Alison Brie, this horror thriller stars Sheila Vand, Dan Stevens, Jeremy Allen White, Anthony
Molinari in pivotal roles.
