As for dream casting, I recall that post-BLM discussion between Lynch and Sutherland where Lynch expressed an interest in centering POC in his work, and I can't imagine he'd have too many more opportunities other than whatever this upcoming project turns out to be. So I'd love to see pretty much any member of the cast of "Atlanta" work with Lynch, but especially Lakeith Stanfield.
Can you link that? I recall the earlier Robert Johnson rumors, and that Sutherland said she would think more in depth about diversity during further projects, but other than a "if a person is right for the job thats all that matters" during the interview I'm thinking of, I don't recall Lynch's quote regarding the matter of focusing on POC. Thanks in advance.
I'd read this article. I misrembered details: may have been a print interview instead of a video, and sounds like Sutherland was expressing it more which should make anti-diversity folks happy : https://www.thedailybeast.com/david-lyn ... quarantine
Both Lynch and Sutherland say that America’s ongoing racial reckoning, including clarion calls for increased diversity in front of and behind the camera, has caused them to consider ways to better center BIPOC voices in their work, a subject that Lynch’s features have long interrogated.
“It makes me think about what I’ve been doing and how I can improve in that respect,” reflects Sutherland. She says that, while many David Lynch productions are staffed with long-time Lynch collaborators like Duwayne Dunham, Peter Deming, and Alfredo Ponce, she plans to “give opportunities that haven’t been there in the past” when new projects can begin safely crewing up.
Lynch, for his part, says that while “it would be wrong to put someone in a role for any other reason than they are perfect for the part,” he also “understands the frustration if people aren’t welcome to the table.” The rule that guides him now after more than five decades of filmmaking is simply to find fellow human beings willing to “follow the ideas” as they come up during production. If that’s the case, “I’m open for anything and I would work with anyone if they were right for the part. Zero problem,” he says.
