With directors Adam and Aaron Nee Lost City now playing in theaters, I recently got to speak with Patty Harrison, oscar nunezand Da’Vine Joy Randolph about making the fun action-comedy. During the wild and often off the rails interview they talked about what people would be surprised to learn about the making of Lost Citytheir reaction to Brad Pitt being in the film, but they wouldn’t have any scenes with him, why they loved watching and working with Sandra Bullock, and diarrhoea. Why this subject came up will make sense at the end of the conversation…
Based on a story idea by Seth Gordon, Lost City follows the story of romance author Loretta Sage (Bullock), who is kidnapped while on a book tour by an eccentric billionaire (Daniel Radcliffe), who believes she has the key to finding a secret lost treasure that exists only in her books. In true Romancing the Stone fashion, her books’ cover model Alan (channing tatum), embarks on a tropical adventure to save her from what may be certain doom. The film also stars Bowen-Yang. The script was written by Pray Uzziel, Dana Fox and Adam Nee & Aaron Nee.
