green book director interview

The Farrelly Brothers became the kings of comedy in the ‘90s with Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin and There’s Something About Mary. However, Green Book is Peter Farrelly’s first solo film and his first drama.

Based on a true story, the film follows Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) as he gets a job as a driver for Dr. Shirley (Mahershala Ali). While Shirley tours the south with his jazz trio, he needs a savvy problem solver to bail him out of jams that may come up between gigs in racist communities. The “green book” of the title is the guide to southern hotels that accept black people.

Peter Farrelly spoke with /Film by phone about making Green Book. He elaborated on how the film consolidated the real life road trip Tony and Dr. Shirley took and shared some stories that didn’t make it into the film. Green Book is now playing in select theaters and opens wide Wednesday, November 21.

Green Book Trailer

The idea of a road trip bringing about some kind of life-changing experience in characters is quite the cliché on the big screen. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be done well. And that’s exactly what comedy director Peter Farrelly looks to be doing with his first foray into drama.

Green Book tells the true story of a working class Italian bouncer named Tony (Viggo Mortensen) who gets hired as the driver and security for black classical pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Oscar winner Mahershala Ali of Moonllight) as he takes a tour of venues on the South side of the Mason-Dixon line in 1962. The result is a friendship that gives each of these travelers a little perspective on the world around them. Watch the first trailer below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »

Welcome to Marwen Release Date

Last week brought the first trailer for Robert Zemeckisjarring juxtaposition of comedy and drama in Welcome to Marwen starring Steve Carell. It sounds like reactions to the trailer have Universal questioning whether it would have successfully opened up against the likes of Creed II, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 and Robin Hood, because they’re pushing back the release date a month.

Welcome to Marwen will no longer be opening on November 21, 2018. Instead, the film will hop back to a December opening just before Christmas and the drama Green Book will take the pre-Thanksgiving release date instead. If you’re not familiar with Green Book, don’t worry, we’ll explain what it’s about below. Read More »
