J.C. Chandor's Film 'All Is Lost' with Robert Redford Uses No Dialogue
I knew there was something unique about this one. In order to sign on 76-year-old Robert Redford to star in a film about being lost at sea on a sailboat, it takes more than just a good story. Ever since first hearing that Robert Redford would be starring in the follow-up from Oscar nominated Margin Call filmmaker J.C. Chandor, I had a feeling there was something special about All Is Lost. Now word has arrived from Redford himself at the Sundance opening press conference that the film actually has "no dialogue" in it. Not much more was revealed besides that, but this is an intriguing concept to follow up unique films like Buried.
While we don't have the complete quote or relevant context, The Playlist was attending and reports that "Redford has said that the film has 'no dialogue.'" Another tweet from someone there stated: "Redford says he recent acted in a dialogue-free indie film. That's worth talking about." Indeed it is. What I want to talk about now is when the heck we're going to see this. I thought it might premiere at Sundance, since they did finish shooting last year, but no word yet. All Is Lost, about "getting lost at sea and struggling against the elements to stay alive" or "a journey of one man's fight to survive." We featured a first look photo last year, but are still waiting to hear about a release or film festival premiere. I'm very curious to see it already.
