As she described the faster nature of filming in the independent horror film We invoke the darkness -In which Hasson co-stars with Alexandra Daddario (Why women kill), Amy Forsyth (The way) and Logan Miller (Escape room) – As a rewarding experience linking her to her co-stars, she discovered that working with Wan was "exciting" and the transition between projects to be a unique experience.
"It was so much fun working on that, so different from shooting We invoke the darknessWhich is a super low budget and independent and we were constantly flying around the seat of our pants trying to stay afloat, which made us fun and brought us all together very quickly. " Hasson laughs. "After that, I moved on to James Wan, who is like the king of horror, he's a very well-oiled machine."
While Hasson did not reveal any details of the plot of the currently highly secretive project, he did notice some intriguing effects. Prestidigitation Mastermind is toying with the movie, which recently pulled out of release schedules amid the global health scare.
"There are all these crazy quirky lightning and weather signal setups, he created rain and lightning indoors, and it was very different but just as cool." Hasson said. "James has a very clear vision of what he wants to do and knows exactly how to do it and he will not stop until he gets exactly what he wants and it was really inspiring to be a witness."
