Riley played Jack in this film in 2012.
Jack and Diane, two teenage girls, meet in New York City and spend the night kissing ferociously. Diane's charming innocence quickly begins to open Jack's tough-skinned heart. But when Jack discovers that Diane is leaving the country in a week, she tries to push her away. Diane struggles to keep their love alive while hiding a secret that her newly awakened sexual desire is turning her into a werewolf.
Magnolia has taken worldwide rights to Jack and Diane, written and directed by Bradley Rust Gray.
The film is presently in post-production and stars Juno Temple, Riley Keough, Cara Seymour and Kylie Minogue.
Brothers Quay apparently contributed some animation to the film while Gabe Bartolos contributed FX.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
A couple things Riley had to say about the movie in an interview:
As an actress, how was it dealing with a camera that almost wasn't there?
Riley Keough: It was really nice. It's not often you get to do that. You get used to pretending that the camera isn't there, but when it's really not there we'd be walking down the street and I wouldn't have any attention on that at all. It makes you able to not have attention on anything except what you're doing.
So, what attracted you to the role of Jack?
RK: It was a great script and there was something that had never been done before. I read it as a love story, not as a horror film. I just love love stories in general. We already had Diane (laughs) so I couldn't be her. I went and talked to (Bradley) about it and I guess he liked me.
How did you build the relationship with Diane? Is it just how you'd naturally react or did you want to convey something else?
RK: I just talked to Brad about it for a while. He wrote it so wonderfully that you could see what their relationship was and it was understanding that. Once you fully understand something, it's easy to do.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
