Plus, do they have any theories on what happened on Earth?
With director George Clooney’s The Midnight Sky now streaming on Netflix, I recently spoke with Felicity Jones and David Oyelowo about making the post-apocalyptic drama. Based on the novel Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton, The Midnight Sky follows a scientist (Clooney) who is alone in the Arctic after a global catastrophe. While struggling to survive, he is also trying to contact a team of astronauts before they return to Earth to find it mysteriously destroyed. The film also stars Caoilinn Springall, Kyle Chandler, Tiffany Boone, and Demián Bichir.
During the interview, Felicity Jones and David Oyelowo talked about what it was like working for Clooney on set, if they came up with any of their own theories about what happened on Earth, why they were so impressed watching the finished film, and more.
Check out what they had to say below and further down the page is exactly what we talked about.
Felicity Jones and David Oyelowo:
- How does Clooney like to direct on set?
- Did they come up with their own theories about what happened on Earth?
- What was it like seeing the finished film because they weren’t on set for half of it during the shoot?
The director originally wanted something more toned down.
