CS Video: Co-writer/director Antonio Campos on The Devil All The Time
ComingSoon.net got the opportunity to chat with co-writer and director Antonio Campos (Christine, The Sinner) to discuss his work bringing the Southern gothic crime drama The Devil All The Time to life, which is now available to stream on Netflix. Our interview can be viewed in the player below!
Based on Donald Ray Pollock’s 2011 novel, The Devil All the Time film is set in rural southern Ohio in a town called Knockemstiff over the course of two decades and surrounding a cast of dark and bizarre characters, including a serial-killing couple, a faith-testing preacher and a corrupt sheriff.
In Knockemstiff, Ohio and its neighboring backwoods, sinister characters — an unholy preacher (Robert Pattinson), twisted couple (Jason Clarke and Riley Keough), and crooked sheriff (Sebastian Stan) — converge around young Arvin Russell (Holland) as he fights the evil forces that threaten him and his family. Spanning the time between World War II and the Vietnam war, director Antonio Campos’ The Devil All the Time renders a seductive and horrific landscape that pits the just against the corrupted.
The film will be led by MCU stars Tom Holland (Impossible, Spider-Man: Far From Home) and Sebastian Stan (Captain America: Civil War, I, Tonya) along with Robert Pattinson (Good Time, The Batman), Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland), Bill Skarsgard (It), Haley Bennett (The Girl on the Train), Jason Clarke (Pet Sematary), Riley Keough (It Comes at Night) Eliza Scanlen (Little Women), Harry Melling (Harry Potter films) and Pokey LaFarge.
The Devil All the Time is directed by Antonio Campos who also co-wrote the adaptation with Paulo Campos. It is produced by Randall Poster (Destroyer), Riva Marker (Wildlife) and Jake Gyllenhaal through their Nine Stories Production, marking Gyllenhaal’s second collaboration with Netflix after the horror-thriller Velvet Buzzsaw. Max Born also produces with Jared Ian Goldman, Marc Hammer, and Annie Marter executive producing.
The movie is now available to stream on Netflix!
