The focus of the new comedy Anyone But You is two people with absolutely no interest in getting along stuck in closer quarters that either of them wants. For director of photography Danny Ruhlmann, ACS, shooting this lighthearted film required a great deal of planning to capture comedic reactions, its Australian wedding destination city, and the interior of an airplane, among other optics.
I had the chance to speak with Ruhlmann about collaborating with director Will Gluck and getting to shoot in his hometown of Sydney. He discussed the advantages of working on a comedy and looked back at the science fiction series he’s shot in the past, comparing the challenges and opportunities to be found in different mediums.
You can watch the video above, and read below for an official summary and where to watch. Check out our review of the film here.
In the edgy comedy Anyone But You, Bea (Sydney Sweeney) and Ben (Glen Powell) look like the perfect couple, but after an amazing first date something happens that turns their fiery hot attraction ice cold – until they find themselves unexpectedly thrust together at a destination wedding in Australia. So they do what any two mature adults would do: pretend to be a couple.
