Bill Skarsgard, Samara Weaving & Yayan Ruhian Starring In ‘Boy Kills World’

DEADLINE EXCLUSIVE: An enticing-looking package is coming together for Boy Kills World, an action movie set in a dystopian fever dream reality that is gearing up to shoot in South Africa.

Bill Skarsgard (Deadpool 2, It Chapter Two) will lead the cast as protagonist Boy, a deaf mute with a vibrant imagination. When his family is murdered, he escapes to the jungle and is trained by a mysterious shaman to repress his childish imagination and become an instrument of death. Also attached are Samara Weaving (Ready or Not, Bill and Ted Face the Music), who will play assassin June 27, and martial arts expert Yayan Ruhian (Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, The Raid: Redemption), who will be Boy’s mentor.

German filmmaker Moritz Mohr is set to make his feature directing debut on the project. His previous short films include Akumi, which was an award-winner in Germany. Mohr put together a detailed previsualization of the film’s cinematic approach, which caught the eye of Sam Raimi, who will now produce the feature through his banner Raimi Productions alongside Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment.

Also producing are Zainab Azizi of Raimi Productions, Stuart Manashil of Novo, Dan Kagan and Andrew Childs of Vertigo Entertainment, and Reza Brojerdi of Ventaro Film. CAA Media Finance will represent domestic rights and arranged the project’s financing with Simon Swart and Wayne Fitzjohn of Nthibah Pictures and Alex Lebovici of Hammerstone Studios.

The screenplay was written by Arend Remmers (Sløborn) and Tyler Burton Smith (Kung Fury: The Movie). Nancy Nayor is casting.

Said Raimi commented, “I am thrilled to be partnering up again with Roy Lee on Moritz Mohr’s Boy Kills World. Moritz has a brilliant sense for action, humor, and world building that I just cannot wait for the world to see. We are excited to be collaborating with Nthibah and Hammerstone to bring Moritz’s unique film to life.”

Added Simon Swart, CEO of Nthibah Pictures, added, “Boy Kills World is set in a distinct dystopian world, combining real world themes with a stylized look that is fresh, cool and original, borrowing from the best of graphic novels. With a script that combines wild innovative action sequences, a sense of humor and a lot of crazy, this film has the potential to be a worldwide hit and potential franchise property.”

Samara Weaving spills on crying in front of Nicole Kidman

Samara Weaving has reflected on her experience filming Nine Perfect Strangers in the wake of the final episode, which airs tomorrow on Amazon Prime Video.

Speaking in a Q&A session on Prime Video’s social media, Samara spoke about what it was like to work with certain high-profile actors, and how she prepared for her role as Jessica.

“I’m most proud of staying cool when Michael Shannon and Nicole Kidman were there, keeping it together, and getting through a scene because my character is insane, I’d have to do all these crazy things in front of them,” she divulged.

“I did some really intense scenes with Nicole, like crying in front of her and then like, ‘okay, well, now you’re friends’,” the former Home and Away actress admitted.

“It was so much fun, it was very surreal… I’ve had to pinch myself.”

The much-discussed method acting of Nicole Kidman during Nine Perfect Strangers meant that Samara met Nicole for the first time when their characters did. Nicole enters the room as Masha, the owner of Tranquillum House, where the main characters have come to stay, and are congregating while they wait for her. “I didn’t really have to act because my jaw hit the ground, and she floated,” Samara said of the filming experience. “It was really amazing – it was so good for the director to do that.”

As Jessica Chandler, Samara plays a social media influencer who suffers from body dysmorphia, a role that proved challenging for Samara. “I have a great drama coach, and we did a deep dive because it was hard to find a line to ground her and make her relatable,” the Australian actress reflected. “The biggest help was the hair and makeup team, who transformed me into this other human being, which helped bring her to life.”

“Jessica … uses plastic surgery as a coping mechanism, but that doesn’t get to the root of the issue,” Samara explained. “As the series progresses, we start peeling back those layers and realising why she acts the way she does, and looks the way she does, is because of working in an industry. “So much of it is external validation,” she said.

The series, which has been widely watched and discussed for its all-star cast, was actually shot locally in Byron Bay, when COVID-19 restrictions meant shooting could not take place in America. This meant the Australian actors on the show – Samara, Nicole, and Asher Keddie as well, were treated to time at home. “I didn’t think I’d be able to come back here and so it was amazing that I was given this opportunity. I could go to my parents who, if it weren’t for this, I probably wouldn’t have seen them for two years,” Samara admitted gratefully. Samara is currently based in the US, where she is garnering more attention for her acting, and more roles in Hollywood films, too.

As the series winds down, WHO has been treated to an exclusive clip from the final episode, Ever After.

“I think you’ll be satisfied with the ending, and it’s crazy, so it doesn’t disappoint,” Samara teased during the Q&A.

Samara Weaving on ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ and Shooting Some of the Wilder Moments

She also talks about the most challenging part of making this show and having Nicole Kidman as a scene partner. [Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers through Nine Perfect Strangers Episode 6, “Motherlode.”]

Adapted by David E. Kelley and John Henry Butterworth from the book by best-selling author Liane Moriarty (Big Little Lies), the Hulu original series Nine Perfect Strangers follows a group of folks who have left the stress of their lives behind to unwind, as they spend ten days at a health and wellness resort. As part of their retreat, Masha (Nicole Kidman) has promised them a path to mind and body healing, if they give themselves over to her mission, which has more in store for them than they ever could have bargained for. The series also stars Melissa McCarthy, Michael Shannon, Luke Evans, Bobby Cannavale, Regina Hall, Samara Weaving, Melvin Gregg, Asher Keddie, Grace Van Patten, Tiffany Boone and Manny Jacinto.

During this virtual 1-on-1 interview with Collider, which you can both watch and read, Weaving talked about the very specific look for her character Jessica Chandler, getting to film in Australia during COVID, shooting some of the wilder moments, having co-star and producer Kidman as a scene partner, exploring the Jessica-Ben dynamic, and the most challenging part of making this show.

Collider: Thank you for talking to me about what seems like it was probably a very fun character to get to explore.

SAMARA WEAVING: Yeah, she was a blast.

When the opportunity to play one of these nine perfect strangers came your way, what was it that got you most interested in the project, since there are so many interesting things about it?

WEAVING: There were so many things to get excited about. Probably selfishly it was that it was filming in Australia. In this pandemic, it’s so hard to get in and out of that country, and I jumped at the opportunity to be able to go there and see my family and friends over there because it’s kind of impossible.

While you were shooting this, did it feel like you were in your own little world?

WEAVING: Totally. It was really surreal. It feels like a dream now because it was a year and a bit ago. We were in paradise. It felt really strange. It was like, “We should be in lock down.” But Australia did such a great job with containing everything that everything was open and we could hang out. We were by the beach and we would just either be at this wellness retreat or we’d be at a waterfall. It was ridiculous.

How involved was the process of creating the look for your character and how much did that help you, in finding who she was?

WEAVING: Oh, a lot. The hair and makeup department and the wardrobe department did the real heavy lifting. We would email back and forth about different looks we wanted and different outfits. When we did the makeup test, that was when I really felt Jessica come to life.

There’s some wild stuff that happens in this show, and one of those things is having your nose fall off. What was that like to do?

WEAVING: I was so nervous because I think it was the second or third scene I had done with Nicole [Kidman] and I was like, “I guess I’m just gonna have to go for it. And then, she’s gonna come in.” But they didn’t use any makeup, which was cool. They just had CGI, so they had dots on my face and this funny prop of my nose. I was practicing at home in the mirror with my partner like, “Okay, is this a funny scream? Should I drop it like this? What’s the truth behind this?” It was really fun.

I would also imagine that you could never have pictured yourself in a delivery scene with Luke Evans delivering Bobby Cannavale’s baby. What goes through your head, when you’re in a moment like that?

WEAVING: Just trying not to laugh. They committed to it. That’s what made it so funny and so weird. It just made me laugh and I just had to bite my tongue.

One of the sequences that I most enjoyed was the potato sack race because everybody actually seems to be having so much fun in it. What was that like to shoot and how long did you have to spend doing that?

WEAVING: If I remember correctly, I think we did it in a day or maybe two days, with some other scenes. It was so fun. The sun was out and there was beautiful green grass, and we were all just getting really into it. I loved when they used the slow-mo camera and we could rewatch everyone’s slow-mo face. That was fun.

If you’re going to get screwed around with by anyone, it seems like Nicole Kidman is a good choice to be doing that to you. What did you most enjoy about exploring that dynamic between your characters and having someone like her as a scene partner, especially with some of the craziness that goes on?

WEAVING: She’s such a generous actor. She really gives you space to play and find the scene. She’s so patient. It was amazing. She was just so wonderful. And she was a producer, so she was a fabulous leader as well. Her and Melissa [McCarthy], and all of the women who were producing this. It was awesome.

What was your reaction to the ending of the series, learning where things would be left, and how your character would end up?

WEAVING: We actually didn’t get the final episode script until three months into shooting, or maybe longer. It was really cool to read where your character is gonna end up, in real time. We’d heard rumors and were wondering about it. Melvin [Gregg] and I would talk about, “I wonder where Ben and Jessica end up. Is it gonna be like the book, or is it gonna be different?” It was awesome.

What was the most challenging part of this shoot? Was there a scene or a moment that was most difficult?

WEAVING: Honestly, the most challenging part was the amount of fake tans I’d have to go and get, getting my nails redone, and getting my hair redone. I just cannot. I have such admiration for women who do that on a weekly basis. I do not have the patience for it. That was the most challenging. Those nails were like three inches long, and trying to do stuff was really hard.

What was it like to see yourself with the tan, especially the first time?

WEAVING: If I stay in the sun long enough, I can get pretty dark. I’m too lazy to lie out. In Australia, you can get skin cancer really easily, so I’ve been told to stay out of the sun. But it was interesting. My partner, Jimmy, was more surprised than I was.

You are one of the characters that goes into this as a couple. What was it like actually having somebody by your side to go through this with and to have that dynamic to explore?

WEAVING: It was really interesting. I loved Melvin. We would get together beforehand and talk about these scenes. The scenes were really nuts and crazy, and it was hard to keep track of where our characters were, each time. It was really good to be able to just have someone to be like, “Where are we in this? Okay, so we’re here.” It was good to have a partner through it all, and being able to explore not just what Jessica was going through, but what Jessica and Ben were going through, as a couple, as well.

Nine Perfect Strangers is available to stream at Hulu.
