In a new interview, “Gones Girl” co-writer and “The Hunger Girls” star Rachel Weisz said “The Great Gatsby” won’t follow “Gods and Monsters” in the same way.
The movie, which is scheduled to premiere July 21, is set in the 1980s and tells the story of a fictional young woman named Emma who ends up on a train to Los Angeles.
Weis, who is also writing the upcoming film “Mulan,” said that Emma won’t become a “hero” as she becomes a “monster” who has “to survive and be loved by everyone.”
The movie has been hailed as a hit by critics and audiences, with its script being described as “sophisticated” and “a masterful blend of thriller and fairy tale.”
Weis said she thinks “Gets Girl” will be “different” than “GOD and MONsters,” but didn’t offer a number of reasons why.
Weisz told EW in an interview that Emma will be different than the other “The Gays,” such as her mother, her brother and her grandmother, who are “a little more like, well, a family.”
Weiz also said she hopes “Gatsby II” will have more “human drama,” adding, “I would love to see more of that.”
The “Gays” director has previously been open about the difficulty of adapting a book for a film.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly in 2015, Weis was asked if she felt her film was “too perfect” for “Gits,” a question that led to a backlash from fans.
Weisel told EW she wasn’t “really surprised” that the book “wasn’t exactly the most successful,” adding that “I think there’s a reason why people have such an aversion to that type of book.”
The actress is currently filming the third installment of the series, which will be released in 2018.
Weisel said she was surprised at the reaction to the film after she wrote the book and said she had to adapt it from her own story.
“I really wasn’t surprised that it wasn’t really the most popular movie,” Weis wrote in the interview.
“I did have to go through a lot of research and try to figure out, how do I sell this book, because I had so much fun writing it.
It wasn’t a perfect movie.”
Weis also shared her thoughts on the “Gives Girl” film and why she doesn’t want “Gates of Hell” or “The Long Walk to Freedom” to be “sequels” to her “Gells.”
Weiz is set to write “The Girl Next Door” and is currently working on the upcoming “Sister Act” film, which stars Charlize Theron.
