in this weekend beast The film stars Idris Elba as Dr. Nate Samuels, a giant lion on a mission to protect his two daughters. The film comes with a lot of horror and a massive lion claw bite. However, those scary moments in the film may be a bit of a taste of the fear that some filmmakers may have felt with close encounters on set! beast Director Baltasar Kormakur spoke with ComicBook.com in an exclusive interview, where he revealed that hyenas on the film’s African set began to interfere with his production and eventually destroyed some of the crew’s equipment!
“I just didn’t want any Africa,” Kormakur said. “I wanted Africa in all its glory, so I want to go to the savannah. I wanted the desert and then I needed a studio in Cape Town. And I’m living my life too, I want to see Africa. But She was, such a challenge and shooting it in the elements. And it was winter. It was cold, colder than Iceland on the night shift. I’m telling you.”
beast It looked like it was taking place in some golden, warm landscape but the set was actually quite cold. “South Africa was a big character in the film,” Elba said. “Well, it wasn’t hot, no, it was their winter, so it was cold… It seems sunny, the sun is always shining. But yes, sometimes an atmosphere becomes part of the show and it definitely is from.”
While Kormakur said, “It’s weirdly cold,” the temperature was hardly the strangest or potentially terrifying encounter on set. “There were hyenas eating our cables,” the director revealed. “Yeah. Boomslangs. We had to walk away from Boomslang because he was blocking our entry into the set.” By the way, boomslang is a venomous snake.
“There was a hyena,” said Kormakur. “I’m not sure, am I allowed to say that. But it was a hyena who cut a cable and turned off the lights in the middle of this shoot.”
Fortunately, it looks like the cast was completely protected from wildlife encounters. Ianna Haley and Leah Jeffries, the cast members who portray Nate’s daughters Meredith and Nora respectively, seem like they had a great time in all the sights South Africa has to offer. “We saw baboons, horses,” said Hailey. “Well, I’d wake up in the morning and see the horses outside my door. Monkey! All kinds of different things I’m not used to.”
“It was really beautiful,” Jeffries said. “We’ve never had contact like any other animal.” Looks like that was saved for production equipment! “They were all beautiful,” she said. “They were doing their job. I would wake up, and I would see beautiful birds, and I would see little muskrats, oysters.”
