In a conversation with representatives of the Hollywood Reporter five years ago, Gore said that only music and one type of fishing could distract him from cinema. The director's favorite films, watching which he spends his free time, are "The Tenant" creativity of Roman Polanski and a tape called "Shine" Kubrick.

In the middle of winter 2018, Gore turned down the directorship of a franchise project called "X-Men - Gambit". After 2 years, the eminent director continued to work on a thriller with elements of science fiction, the name of which is Spaceless (“Without space”). The tape demonstrates the life of a killer who chases the victim through comical distances.

Interesting facts about "Rango"

A Western called Rango from Paramount about the life of a cute chameleon appeared on the screens already eleven years ago - in 2011. Therefore, we suggest that you familiarize yourself with the most interesting stories about this animated western:

· During a conversation with journalists, Gore recalled that the Rango cartoon started as a dream project: it was the idea that came to the director during breakfast, and the script was developed in an empty house and with virtually no funds. Gore and his associates wrote the script, storyboarded the future western, and came up with the dialogue of the characters, fixing the notes to the creative project and the images included in the cartoon western to the walls in the room until the very moment when “the whole dwelling became associated with the visualization of the brain of a maniac ".

After a year and a half of coordinated actions of the entire creative troupe, the actor Johnny Depp joined the creation of the western, who at that time was in the rays of glory after the release of the franchise called "Pirates of the Caribbean". Gore introduced the actor to the storyline of the story, which by that time was already almost at the finish line, and Johnny simply told him in response to this: “I agreed even at the moment when I learned that the main character of the cartoon would be a lizard - chameleon.

Rango is Verbinski's first animated feature. As the director himself said, “In my creative biography there were no facts, which would show that I understand how to create amazing animation - and that's what helped make the production process of this animated film so interesting.

· The most positive part of the creative process was connected with how the recording of the voice acting of the characters with the voices of the actors was carried out. By the time this part of the work on the project started, Verbinski already had draft versions of how his characters should sound.. The director did not want to record each actor individually, for this very reason he announced a collective gathering of all project participants together for 20 days. He gave recommendations to all participants that they read the text from the sheet as little as possible, and, if possible, record all the dialogues live.

· The animators of the studio were well aware of the goal pursued by the director while working on this cartoon. They were aware of all the references and storyboards that Verbinski had created. together with his associates during the first months of the project.
