Interview by Rafy Mediavilla w/ “Pearl” Writer & Director – Ti West.
Trapped on her family’s isolated farm, Pearl must tend to her ailing father under the bitter and overbearing watch of her devout mother. Lusting for a glamorous life like she’s seen in the movies, Pearl’s ambitions, temptations, and repressions all collide, in the stunning, technicolor-inspired origin story of X’s iconic villain.
What was going through your mind when X was release and everybody went out to see it, and they came out of the theater wanting to see Pearl this prequal that exact same second?
It felt great because I knew we had this one in the can, so having made two movies at once before the first one came out was a big risk and thankfully everybody loved X, and you know, now we have a great second movie to follow.
