Sunita Mani was all the time going to be part of Alex Huston Fischer and Eleanor Wilson’s sci-fi comedy “Save Yourselves!” So a lot so, that the writers wrote the script for her, and named the character after her.
“I’ve heard about this project for a really, really long time and I have worked with Alex for a really long time and so I got to read iterations of the script,” Mani informed TheWrap’s Beatrice Verhoeven on the Sundance Film Festival. “I was attached immediately.”
“We wrote the script for her,” Wilson stated, whereas Fischer added, “Her character’s name is Su.”
“But I didn’t really know that!” Mani stated.
“I know, we didn’t really tell you,” Fischer responded. “And then John, I don’t know, we weren’t really interested in John [Reynolds] for a long time and then for some reason we ended up …”
“No, no,” Wilson interjected. “We saw John in ‘Search Party,’ we loved him and he’s very, very funny. We couldn’t see anyone else in the role after that.”
“Save Yourselves!” is written and directed by Fischer and Wilson, and stars Mani and Reynolds as a pair who head upstate to disconnect from their telephones and discover themselves. Cut off from the world, they miss the information that their planet is beneath assault. The duo bought their inspiration from asking themselves, “What’s the worst thing that could happen?” and the film was born.
“What’s happening in real life is worse. The slow death of the planet is more dramatic, but we went with the four-day end of world,” Fischer stated.
