Ray, you had the great benefit of working with Zack Snyder on the brilliant Snyder Cut of “Justice League,” the proper cut. How thrilling was it to get a call from Zack again, for “Rebel Moon”?
Ray Fisher: I was ecstatic. I told him, “Sign me up!” Zack and I have a really awesome shorthand and I’ve admired his work. Even prior to getting to work with him, I’ve admired his work for years, and being able to jump into the saddle with him in this brand-new IP, this brand-new world, the brand-new universe — not even a world — a universe that he’s bringing to life, it’s amazing.
E. and Cleopatra, did Ray share the excitement of how great it is to work with Zack ahead of time?
Cleopatra Coleman: Yes, he did. Ray and I had coffee early on to get to know each other, because we were going to be playing siblings, and it was really cool to get an insider’s opinion on what it’s like to work with Zack and be on one of his sets.
What about you, E.? Did Zack live up to the expectations that Ray presented to you?
E. Duffy: Yeah, absolutely. Ray shares the spirit of Zack, which is super passionate, super good at what he does, and really welcoming. A total leader. I felt so lucky when we met each other in the gym, and I felt quite guided by Ray the whole time.
