Movie2k Movies – Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Production Notes


In August 2010, it was reported that director Stephen Daldry and producer Scott Rudin had been working on a film adaptation of the novel for five years. Eric Roth was hired to write the script. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is a co-production with Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros., with Warner being the “lead studio”. Chris Menges served as director of photography, K. K. Barrett as production designer and Ann Roth as costume designer.

Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock were the first to be cast in the film. A nationwide search for child actors between the ages of 9 and 13 began in late October 2010 for the role of Oskar Schell.

In December 2010, Thomas Horn who won the 2010 Jeopardy! Kids Week was chosen for the role.

On January 3, 2011 The Hollywood Reporter announced that John Goodman joined the cast. That same month Viola Davis and Jeffrey Wright were cast. Nico Muhly was credited in the film poster as the composer, but on October 21, 2011 it was reported that Alexandre Desplat will compose the score.

Principal photography was expected to begin in January, but started in March 2011 in New York City. Filming went on hiatus in June. On May 16, 2011, scenes were shot on the streets of the Lower East Side and Chinatown. Cranes were used to shoot scenes on the corner of Orchard Street and Grand Street. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close was filmed with an Arri Alexa and was the first feature film to use Arri’s ArriRaw format to store the data for post-production.

Daldry had hoped to have the film released around the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. A test screening took place in New York on September 25, 2011 to a positive reaction.
