Room for improvisation
Chase – Disappeared, a Prime Video film, is a fast-paced thriller designed to keep the actors constantly on the move and viewers glued to the screen. To obtain this result, its production was very special. In fact, he opted for three elements that are unusual for the genre: a short shooting schedule, limited locations and, incredibly, a leading actor capable of improvising dialogue.
Starting from a premise that everyone can relate to (the disappearance of a loved one), the script included the dialogue of all the characters on stage except for the main character, Will Spann. As if that weren’t enough, Gerard Butler, the actor who plays Will, didn’t have the entire film script at his disposal: he would have known day by day how the situation would have evolved.
“For a film like this you have to find the actors who are willing to put themselves on the line,” said director Brian Goodman. “Not everyone is willing to improvise: they want the script and they want the rehearsals. I respect them but this was not the case with Chase – Disappeared. Everyone had to be ready and let go of instinct: Gerard Butler could have said anything and they had to be able to respond credibly”.
