The Hollywood Reporter: ‘Life After Beth’ Stars Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, Director Talk Finding Truth in Zombie Rom-Com

Dane DeHaan in Life After Beth: new exclusive HQ stills added
 

Don’t get distracted by the zombies.

Life After Beth writer-director Jeff Baenainsists that his new film, starring Aubrey Plaza and Dane DeHaan, is just a relationship film in which the female half of the central couple is an undead flesh-eater.

Baena explained that while the idea came to him after he’d gone through a couple of breakups and was also reading about zombies, he tried to keep the focus on interpersonal connections.

“[The film is] sort of dealing with issues and traumas and situations that you would deal with in a zombie movie, but more on a personal level,” Baena told The Hollywood Reporter after a New York screening of the dark comedy. “I wanted to focus more on the emotional carnage instead of the physical carnage.”

In order to keep the zombie elements from getting too out of hand, Baena says, “I just made sure that whatever was happening was happening in [DeHaan’s character’s] vicinity and if it wasn’t his vicinity, I wouldn’t highlight it because that would be sensational. I’d rather keep it more grounded.”

Plaza, who plays the undead Beth, said she just tried to stick to the script in terms of her character’s zombie transformation.

“A lot of the zombie stuff was in the script and it was sort of my interpretation of his interpretation of what a zombie is and does,” she told THR. “I really just made a lot of different choices and let him mold it into what he wanted.”

Plaza added that Baena’s script was what attracted her to the project, saying, “I felt like it was unlike anything I’d ever read before. I really loved the tone of it. It felt like he almost created a new genre.”

For DeHaan, who plays Beth’s non-zombie boyfriend Zach, the film offered a chance for the actor to do his first comedy, with, he says, “some of my favorite comedians.”

“I knew I would at least leave there having learned a lot and getting to watch those guys work,” DeHaan told THR.

In keeping with Baena’s authentic approach, DeHaan explained that he learned about the importance of truth in comedy.

“One of the main things I walked away from was about finding comedy in the truth because ultimately it’s about being truthful and honoring the material. If you do that, then the comedy will happen,” he said.

Speaking of first times, Baena makes his directorial debut on the film but as DeHaan explained, you wouldn’t know it because of how experienced he was at working on film sets.

“Jeff has been in the business for a very long time, and he’s seen a lot of really great directors work, and he was a pro, and he kept things going and he could be really efficient, which was important for our schedule,” DeHaan said.

In addition to working with David O. Russell as a writer on I Heart Huckabees, Baena also watchedRobert Zemeckis work, as an assistant for the Back to the Future and Forrest Gump helmer.

“I think just being in those environments, you learn how to treat people and how to get things done,” Baena said.

DeHaan’s Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb was also on hand for the small screening and reception at Manhattan’s Crosby Street Hotel but declined to talk to THR. For his part, DeHaan said he learned of last week’s Spider-Man release date shifts when he read articles about the news and didn’t know any more than what was reported.

Anton Corbijn mentions Dane DeHaan in his latest INDIEWIRE interview

Dane DeHaan as James Dean in Life
 
In his latest interview with IndieWire Anton Corbijn mentions many things: Philip Seymour Hoffman, his career, ‘Life‘, and Dane as well. You can read an entire interview here. And below we have a Dane-related part:

In “Life,” Dane DeHaan will be playing James Dean. How difficult was it to cast someone in that role?
It was difficult. Also I think for the actors it’s very difficult to step in his shoes. But Dane DeHaan plays it well. He’s a tremendous actor. I don’t think he wanted to do it initially. He wouldn’t take a meeting with me because he didn’t want to be persuaded. But luckily he came to me and he was persuaded. He’s amazing.

He’s great in “Kill Your Darlings.”
Yeah, and “Place Beyond the Pines.” I haven’t seen “Spider-Man [2].” “Lawless” I have seen. And he’s in “Devil’s Knot” and “Life After Beth.” I haven’t seen that. I was in Sundance but I didn’t manage to see a single film.

The Sunday Times 2014: Welcome to Hollywood… 2024

He grew up playing pretend: Dane DeHaan

Dane DeHaan photoshoot for 2013 Sunday Times

On a biting-cold Sunday last month, two magazine covers of America’s future sat in a cafe on New York’s 10th Avenue as the world drifted by. One — Cory Booker — is a Democrat senator, a favourite for president in 2024. The other, Dane DeHaan, is an actor, the new Leonardo DiCaprio, who points out Booker to me — “I love Cory Booker” — as supporters of Obama did towards the end of the last century. DeHaan plays James Dean in a new film, from a time before his big time. “People in the business knew who he was,” says this actor of that one. “But he wasn’t famous yet.” Sometimes, features write themselves.

I arranged to meet DeHaan to (pretty much) tell him how brilliant he is. See anything from his short career and you will understand. From a loner in Chronicle who gets special powers, to Ryan Gosling’s vengeful son in The Place Beyond the Pines, to the Beat-poet killer Lucien Carr in Kill Your Darlings — on screen, he is intense, likeable, cute. With, as a colleague points out, incredible blue eyes.

I don’t spend time thinking about my eyes,” he smiles, sipping a cappuccino. He smiles a lot. “They’re just my eyes. I guess I have to thank my parents.”

He was born in 1986, in Allentown, Pennsylvania — a blue-collar city that became the unasked-for subject of a Billy Joel song about deprivation and old industry. He was impatient, and left when he could, moving to North Carolina for “arts class from nine in the morning to 11 at night”. He “grew up playing pretend”, wanting only to act, and if his twenties so far have been quiet, steady, the next 10 years will change that. This month, he is in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as Harry Osborn, who turns into the Green Goblin.

It’s a whole new audience, I say. “I mean, it’s, like, the world,” he replies. “Suddenly, everybody knows who you are...” He trails off. In Life — the Dean film — he stars with Robert Pattinson. Daniel Radcliffe was one of the many men who wanted to bed him in Kill Your Darlings. And for the sequel to 2012’s original reboot, Andrew Garfield returns as Spider-Man. DeHaan, then, has seen how life in a big franchise can be. “I don’t spend much time thinking about it,” he says, clearly thinking about it. “Because you can’t grasp it until it’s happening.”

The blockbuster was a six-month shoot in New York, the biggest ever in the city. It was a convenient location, what with DeHaan living over in Brooklyn with his wife, the TV actress Anna Wood (“She really keeps me sane”), and he prefers it on the East Coast. It’s where he can find better theatre parts and continue to collect admirers, just like James Franco, who played Osborn in last decade’s Spider-Man films, and who has painted DeHaan. (That portrait can be seen later this month in Interview magazine.)

I ask who his heroes are and he says, sweetly: “Phil Hoffman, you know?” DeHaan used to take the bus from Allentown to New York, to the late actor’s LAByrinth company, for readings. “He continued to challenge himself,” he says. Then he mutters: “Al Pacino.” He has been to his house: another reading. “He has a coffee table littered with acting books,” he says, in awe. “It was amazing. He is Al Pacino, and he’s still reading books about acting, like he’s trying to get better.”

At 28 — DeHaan’s age — Pacino hadn’t done anything. He was four years away from The Godfather. We big up people more these days, and the web is full of articles titled Why Dane DeHaan Should Be Your New Hollywood Crush — not to mention his own active social-network accounts on which he and his wife post pictures of themselves and their dog. He’s a visible actor, the face of Prada’s new campaign; he has already been shot by Hedi Slimane and Annie Leibovitz.

It was never something I aspired to,” he says of his modelling work. “But, when I was younger, I did always like fashion. Well, as much fashion as you’re exposed to as a kid in Allentown, Pennsylvania.” He used to look at “red driving shoes” in the Prada store on those trips into Manhattan, wishing he could buy them. He has since been sent a pair. “Now I need a car,” he laughs. He’ll probably be sent one of those, too.

For now, it’s about balance. The awards-flirting Life, directed by Anton Corbijn, will open next year. There is also a mooted Green Goblin spin-off, The Sinister Six. I ask if he would be in it. “This movie plants the seeds for something further down the road,” he says carefully. “But as far as my future in the franchise goes, I have no idea. I’d love to continue. I really, truly would.”

That said, his “side job”, the modelling, allows him “to take acting jobs that are the most challenging, and I don’t have to worry how much I’m paid”. Maybe DeHaan won’t suit up again for months on end. Maybe he knows his talents are better used elsewhere.

If I get to do a superhero movie, a comedy, play a real-life person and do a 16th-century romance, back to back, then I’ll grow more than if I did the same movie over and over,” he says.

I ask about the next decade: where he will be in 2024. He says if someone had asked him that five years ago, he would have “sold myself way short”. He doesn’t know. “I can only hope that in 10 years, things would have continued to grow.”

He’s on a long weekend break and, when we’re done, he near runs out of the cafe, back to Brooklyn. I hope someone took a photo of Senator Booker and DeHaan in the same room. The next time that happens, it could be in the White House, one of those star-studded flesh-pressing events. The next time it happens, the world will be watching.

Dazed Digital: “Dane DeHaan: Hollyweird’s poster boy”

Dane DeHaan during 2013's photoshoot by Bafic

As he slips into the more comfortable title of sex symbol, the small-town Pennsylvanian and future James Dean is shedding the label of geek

Maybe it’s the glassy eyes. Maybe it’s his disarmingly slow, geeky warble. Either way, Hollywood’s hottest property, Dane DeHaan – imported from the sheltered ‘burbs of Allentown, Pennsylvania (pop. 118,974) – is finally on the verge of becoming a true sex symbol, after years spent languishing in the purgatory of being a “thinking woman’s crumpet”. DeHaan has just been made Prada’s latest poster boy, and bulked up comic-book-movie style (read: a gruelling six days a week at the gym for nine months) for the role of the Green Goblin in Amazing Spider-Man 2. He also plays a cocksure, Marlboro-lipped James Dean in Anton Corbijn’s forthcoming Life, about a Life magazine photographer (Robert Pattinson) obsessed with the late icon. Surely he must be feeling like a sex bomb ready to detonate?

“I don’t know. God, I mean, there’s definitely a subconscious sense of confidence that goes along with it,” he smirks, adding a splash of milk to his coffee. He’s clearly bowled over by the idea that people would eagerly throw themselves at the former small-town beanpole. “People tweet…” He trails off, thumbing through his @-replies. “It hasn’t really reached an uncomfortable level of people throwing themselves at me in a way that’s uncomfortable. It’s just a whole lot of love. And that’s the really exciting part of it, I think.” Don’t waste your characters though, ladies. He put a ring on his high-school sweetie, fellow actor Anna Wood, in 2012. The couple live together in Brooklyn.

Dane DeHaan has already ticked off a good deal of boxes on the way to becoming a bona fide international box office draw. His first big role was in 2010 as troubled Bret Easton Ellis-type Jesse D’Amato in season three of HBO’s In Treatment, but he really made a splash in 2012 as rickets-addled southern moonshiner Cricket Pate in John Hillcoat’s Lawless, a Nick Cave-scripted film about a 30s-era bootlegging brotherhood fronted by Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf. DeHaan and LaBeouf took a near-method approach to getting into the role of fraternal closeness – before shooting started, the pair took a four-day coast-to-coast US road trip from LaBeouf’s hometown of LA to southern heartland Georgia.

So how was it spending the best part of a week with the ‘Beouf? Did the infamous paper bag make an appearance? He says their main beef was over the car soundsystem. “I was like, uhhh, I don’t really like rap music…” (DeHaan is more of a heavy metal kind of guy, and later appeared as Metallica roadie Trip in 2013 IMAX movie Metallica Through the Never.) It was a shaky start but gave way to a solid bromance – even if the unlikely pair were more Wayne and Garth than Thelma and Louise. “I think the bonding was over things we didn’t have in common, you know?” DeHaan says. They even spent Valentine’s Day together over a bowl of gumbo in “a really weird, nice restaurant” in Shreveport, Louisiana, where the two Hollywood outcasts were gawked at by formally dressed diners for their grubby road trip gear.

After Lawless, DeHaan appeared alongside Ryan Gosling in The Place Beyond the Pines, before charming and flirting his way through his first real starring role, as the self-destructive Lucien Carr opposite Daniel Radcliffe as Allen Ginsberg in Beat Generation love-in Kill Your Darlings. His onscreen kiss with Radcliffe lit up the messageboards and became something of an accidental career mile marker. “It was great, I guess,” DeHaan told us back in December. “If I were going into that scene thinking, ‘You’re about to kiss Daniel Radcliffe,’ I wouldn’t be doing my job. When we shot it, I was thinking, ‘I finally get to kiss the person that I love.'”

If I wanted to buy a CD, my Dad would listen to it and let me know if I could own it. They wouldn’t let me have the Green Day Dookie album. They wouldn’t let me have Bush. I mean, up to a certain age, I couldn’t watch The Real World”

The son of a computer programmer father and Knoll furniture executive mother, DeHaan had an unexceptional childhood. “I don’t think that my upbringing in Allentown would make a very exciting film,” he admits. All incoming culture went through a marathon screening process. “If I wanted to buy a CD, my dad would buy it first and listen to it and let me know if I could own it,” he says, before rattling off a laundry list of blacklisted material. “Metallica albums, Green Day… They wouldn’t let me have the Green Day Dookie album. They wouldn’t let me have Bush! I mean, up to a certain age, I couldn’t watch The Real World.”
“Not that you’d want to, really…” I say, coming to his defence. “I did want to!” he retorts with a chuckle. “The Real World used to be cool.”

I had this health teacher (who) kept me after class one time, saying, ‘You’re missing a lot of class.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, but I’m doing this play.’ He said, ‘Community theatre is not going to take you anywhere. Maybe you should stay in school’

Haunting the halls of Emmaus High School for three years with a Ferris Bueller-like truancy record, DeHaan would get into bouts with teachers who thought school should come before his ‘hobby’ of acting. “I had this health teacher – which was honestly the least important class I could probably be taking – and he kept me after class one time, saying, ‘You know, you’re missing a lot of class.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I know, but I’m doing this play.’ He said, ‘Community theatre and all that, it’s great, but it’s not going to take you anywhere. Maybe you should stay in school.'”

DeHaan swapped the peeved teachers of EHS for some of his all-time heroes: the teaching staff at North Carolina School of the Arts. One man in particular was the Miss Honey to his Matilda: Gerald Freedman, the now-retired dean of UNCSA. “Gerald was a very foreboding presence to me when I first came to school,” DeHaan said in a speech to commemorate the outgoing benefactor’s retirement. “He seemed like a fire-breathing Dionysus that would strike me down the moment I forgot a line or didn’t meet his expectations in a scene.” For one of their first meetings, DeHaan struggled through the opening of Chekhov’s The Seagull before he was cut short by Freedman saying, ‘What are you doing?!’. “I was like, ‘Well, I’m trying to impress the other character,’” DeHaan says now. “And he was like, ‘You’re not doing that. What you’re doing is you’re trying to do a good acting scene so that I think it’s good.’ And I was like, ‘Well, you’re right, actually…’”

“I kept thinking, ‘What am I going to do with this kid?!’ He’s too old to play children, but too young to play adults. I knew he was special, but what was the business going to do with him?” – Gerald Freedman

Freedman tells me that it was “rumoured” that DeHaan and Anna never slept. DeHaan bursts out laughing. “Did he seriously say that?” he asks. “No, we would not stay up all night. I mean, we would stay up late and have fun with friends and stuff. I remember in my freshman year, I had a friend named Paul and a friend named Matteo who shared a dorm together and we called their dorm room ‘Club PM’ (for Paul-Matteo), and we would all take our mattresses from our dorm rooms and create a floor of mattresses, and we would just go there and play Halo all night long, and go get fast food and hang out…” He trails off. “Those were such fun times.”

It’s uncanny how much his career seems to be mimicking that of the young James Franco. Both have played Harry Osborn in big-budget Spidey flicks, as well as James Dean (Franco in a TV movie). Franco – in all his experimental thirst – has even painted a portrait of DeHaan. Irrespective of artistic merit, being immortalised in acrylic by Franco is surely the penultimate step before a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. DeHaan will have to tread carefully.

To be honest, I haven’t spent that much time thinking about the fame aspect of it. Certainly now that I am here, and Spider-Man 2 is about to come out, it’s starting to register that something is happening

“To be honest, I haven’t spent that much time thinking about the fame aspect of it,” he says, fingering his wedding band. It sounds all too scripted, but he seems humble. “Certainly now that I am here, and Spider-Man 2 is about to come out, it’s starting to register that something is happening. But for me, what I focus on is the work, because that’s what I love to do and that’s the only thing that will always be there. I do what I do because I love to do it, and I love to do it because it’s a neverending quest. It’s an artform that you can do for your whole life and try to get better and better, and never be as good as you want to be. The fact that the world has embraced me in the way that they have makes my life so awesome and so cool. I never look at it thinking, ‘It’s going to take away my privacy or make me really famous.’ I just look at it as an opportunity to continue to try to master this artform.”

Whatever his path to enlightenment, he seems to be on the fast track. Fame is just dawning on DeHaan, the Halo-playing nerd who became Hollyweird’s poster boy. The kid who wasn’t allowed to listen to Metallica, who traded health class for community theatre. As we’re about to leave and DeHaan prepares to fend off throngs of females shoving at barriers for the Amazing Spider-Man 2 premiere, he stops short. “It’s so exciting that the world is embracing me, but I try as hard as I can to make it all about the work. I don’t know if I look at myself and I’m like, ‘Wow.’ I just look at all these opportunities I’m getting, and I’m so thankful.”

Finally: an official “Tulip Fever” news article

After long time of guessing and waiting, we finally got to hear something Tulip Fever-related on news blogs. So, Dane is definitely in the cast, and we hope that our guesses about him practicing painting for the movie in London are true :) Read the article below:

Following a breakthrough role in The Hangover, comedian Zach Galifianakis became quite a hot commodity, though some of his roles felt like they were studio attempts to softly cash in on the actor’s odd comedic sensibilities and throw him at mainstream audiences. The only role that didn’t feel like a cheap gimmick was his surprisingly dramatic turn in It’s Kind of a Funny Story, but it sounds like we might get another worthwhile performance from the comedian soon. Screen Daily counts Galifianakis amongst the cast for director Justin Chadwick‘s film adaptation of Deborah Moggach’s period novel Tulip Fever.

For those who may not be familiar with the book, here’s the official synopsis:

In 1630s Amsterdam, tulipomania has seized the populace. Everywhere men are seduced by the fantastic exotic flower. But for wealthy merchant Cornelis Sandvoort, it is his young and beautiful wife, Sophia, who stirs his soul. She is the prize he desires, the woman he hopes will bring him the joy that not even his considerable fortune can buy.

Cornelis yearns for an heir, but so far he and Sophia have failed to produce one. In a bid for immortality, he commissions a portrait of them both by the talented young painter Jan van Loos. But as Van Loos begins to capture Sophia’s likeness on canvas, a slow passion begins to burn between the beautiful young wife and the talented artist.

As the portrait unfolds, so a slow dance is begun among the household’s inhabitants. Ambitions, desires, and dreams breed a grand deception — and as the lies multiply, events move toward a thrilling and tragic climax.

Chadwick previously directed The Other Boleyn Girl and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, and this time he’s working from a script by Tom Stoppard (Anna Karenina, Shakespeare in Love). As for the rest of the cast, it certainly makes Galifianakis feel a bit out of place with Christoph Waltz, Dane DeHaan, Jack O’Connell, Holliday Grainger and Alicia Vikander attached. Of course, we have every bit of faith and curiosity in Galifianakis tackling something so remarkably different after having to sit through three films to make up The Hangover franchise. The film is on sale at Cannes, and we hope to hear more soon.

‘Reckless’ Anna Wood and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s’ Dane DeHaan enjoy ‘exciting whirlwind’

Dane DeHaan with wife Anna Wood

Marriage to the Green Goblin may be easier if you’re also an actor who knows just what goes into making someone a monster.

The star of CBS’ Southern-set law drama “Reckless” — premiering Sunday, June 29 — Anna Wood is the wife of Dane DeHaan, who just had a big box-office weekend as one of the web-slinger’s prime enemies in the instant-hit movie “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” While she’s excited about her show, Wood says she was just as thrilled to make recent promotional rounds with her spouse.

“Oh, my gosh, it’s been just the most exciting whirlwind of a month for us,” the former “Mad Men” and “House of Lies” guest star tells Zap2it. “He just went to London to start shooting the movie ‘Tulip Fever,’ and we couldn’t believe it was already time for him to leave. Every day, we’ve had a new thing to do to celebrate all the wonderful opportunities we’ve had.”

Wood’s own film work has been on the order of smaller, independent films, such as director-writer-star Edward Burns’ 2010 comedy “Nice Guy Johnny.” However, she maintains if an “Amazing Spider-Man” came her way, she’d certainly consider it … “especially after seeing what an amazing time” DeHaan had.

“They’re all unique experiences, depending on who you have on board. For this one, I got to do the entire European tour with them, and they couldn’t have been a nicer or more enthusiastic group of people. They totally had their hearts in the right place.”

Woods adds she was “blown away by the amount of charity work, and work with kids, that they did as they went to each different city. If you can keep it as grounded and humble and fun as they did, where do I sign up?”

COMIC-BOOK MOVIES ARE WHERE MY CHILDHOOD FANTASIES MEET MY ADULTHOOD ACTING FANTASIES. I REALLY, TRULY STARTED ACTING BY PLAYING SUPERHEROES IN MY BACKYARD.
DANE DEHAAN

Self-confessed theater geek Dane DeHaan left his hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, while he was still in high school to study acting at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Television roles (on HBO’s In Treatment and True Blood, among others) came quickly, and soon DeHaan was racking up an impressive roster of film credits. In a matter of just four years, he has worked with John Sayles (in the 2010 war saga Amigo), with John Hillcoat (across from Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf in 2012’s Lawless), with Steven Spielberg (reciting the Gettysburg Address to the president in 2012’s Lincoln), and with Derek Cianfrance (in 2012’s The Place Beyond the Pines). In last year’s Kill Your Darlings, he played Lucien Carr, a college friend of Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg, who in 1944 murdered his admirer David Kammerer, and initially had his beatnik buddies help cover it up (Carr ultimately pled guilty to manslaughter and served 18 months at a reformatory).

Now 28, DeHaan again plays a real-life murder suspect (this time, Chris Morgan, a peripheral character in the West Memphis child murders), alongside Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth, in director Atom Egoyan’s Devil’s Knot, about the West Memphis Three, out this month. He’ll also appear in the little drama The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Peter Parker’s nemesis Harry Osborn—a playboy who morphs into the Green Goblin.

And for his next project, the young actor who has made a name playing troubled adolescents takes on his dream role, playing Mister Moody himself, James Dean, in Anton Corbijn’s forthcoming Life (opposite Robert Pattinson, who plays photographer Dennis Stock). If this series of roles sounds somewhat familiar, we thought it did too. And so we asked James Franco, who broke out in 2001 as the lead in the TNT movie James Dean and played Osborn in the Tobey Maguire-era Spideys (as well as Allen Ginsberg in Howl, 2010), to give DeHaan a call. Franco, who is presently doing Of Mice and Men on Broadway, rang from Brooklyn to discover that DeHaan, who’d recently flown to New York from Toronto, was only a few blocks away.
