Exclusive: Screen Rant presents a BTS clip from Ghosted, in which the director, Chris Evans & Ana de Armas discuss the Apple TV+ film’s scale.
Screen Rant is pleased to present an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette from the hit Apple TV Plus movie Ghosted. A rom-com with a massive big-budget scale and thrilling action sequences, the movie was written and directed by Dexter Fletcher, whose artistic range encompasses both 2019’s Rocketman and the upcoming Sherlock Holmes 3. The star-studded affair is led by Chris Evans and Ana de Armas as Cole Turner and Sadie Rhodes, whose burgeoning romance is interrupted by Sadie’s career as a CIA agent.
Ghosted takes its title seriously, kicking into high gear when Cole decides to follow Sadie to London because she’s been “ghosting” him since their wildly successful first date. Once there, he is immediately kidnapped and thrust directly into her highly dangerous world of criminals and assassins. Not only is this an opportunity for Evans and de Armas to flex their action muscles, it’s also a chance for Fletcher to prove what he can do with future big-budget productions and CGI-filled shoots.
Why World-Building Matters in Ghosted
In Screen Rant‘s exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from Ghosted, Fletcher explains how the genre-blending spy thriller was his first chance to play with a set of that magnitude. Ana de Armas chimes in that, aside from being epic, the set was also full of joy and laughter. As evidenced by the many shots of blue screens and gorgeous landscapes, one of the big goals of the film was to contrast Cole’s sheltered life prior to meeting Sadie with the risks he takes due to his feelings for her.
The scope and scale of Ghosted is just as significant a factor in Cole’s character development as it is a visual selling point. Chris Evans got to play the damsel for once, and his character is therefore rightfully dwarfed by his surroundings as he relies on Sadie’s expertise to see him through. The MCU cameos from actors such as Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan also help to create that dichotomy between what audiences expect and what they get, all adding up to role reversal that makes Ghosted work.
Ghosted is now streaming on Apple TV+.
