Project's 12-day shoot fills pic with tension
The story idea was conceived 30 years ago, the original release date was delayed, but Monday night’s special screening of “Phone Booth” went off without a hitch.
An unseasonable sprinkling of snow also did nothing to dampen the ardor of fans — perhaps sensing Farrellmones — who gathered outside of the theater.
Afterwards, celebrants toasted the pic at the Park, a nearby restaurant.
“The tension in the film is because we can’t believe we’re going to make it,” said helmer Joel Schumacher about the 12-day shoot.
“There was no waiting around and no time for over-contemplation,” observed star Colin Farrell.
Farrell didn’t have time to over-contemplate his career trajectory either. “I’m much too busy living in the present to worry about how the past puts me in a position now,” he said.
Partygoers included co-star Katie Holmes, scribe Larry Cohen and Fox 2000 topper Elizabeth Gabler, who came with husband (and CAA co-chair) Lee. Others in attendance: Ahmet Ertegun, Shea Wingham, Zach Braff, Sam Rockwell and writer Michael Cunningham.
