Further to this, yet more interviews have been released online. Dan and Zoe Kazan sat down with Coming Soon to discuss the movie, working with Adam Driver and their similar movie backgrounds.
“In most romantic comedies, the act of dropping everything and flying to Ireland suddenly unannounced would be enough to reconcile the situation ..in this film it just creates more problems, because it’s a mental thing to do… there’s something great about kind of being grounded in that reality where your decisions have consequences and they aren’t always as idealized as you’d want them to be.”
Dan also spoke about how and why he ended up doing What If:
It was just sent to me with a letter from Michael Dowse, saying why he thought I would be good for the role. It was a really kind letter. So I read the script and on the second page there was a moment of real identification with the character when he’s talking to this girl and he’s spouting off all this drivel about “forte” and how it should be pronounced. I’m into words and etymology and stuff like that so I would definitely be the kind of guy who would pick someone up on something like that. Maybe not now, but when I was younger. So I related to him at that moment. But also I thought the script was funny and smart. It’s not a revolutionary story in any sense. We aren’t reimagining the rom-com. It’s a very traditional story. But I think it’s executed really well, a real feel-good movie but it’s not manipulative, cheap, and sappy. A great date movie.
