Video: Odd thing happens to Elisabeth Moss in cryptic 'One I Love' trailer

Many romantic comedies make love out to be some sort of beautiful, universal mystery. The One I Love turns it into a literal mystery—or something. Frankly, it’s really hard to tell from the trailer.

Starring Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) and Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed) as a couple that journeys to a secluded romantic retreat, The One I Love promises a shocking twist in the midst of their fairly ordinary relationship. Again, that’s what the trailer implies—first-time feature director Charlie McDowell’s not really giving much away.

'Tammy's Mark Duplass explains how to make a movie and a marriage work -- Exclusive photos

Mark Duplass, indie filmmaker and sitcom all-star (The League, The Mindy Project), knows what it’s like to make movies with someone you love. He writes and directs movies with his older brother, Jay (Cyrus), and he also collaborates with his League co-star and wife, Katie Aselton (Black Rock). So he was familiar with the challenge that faced Melissa McCarthy and her husband, Ben Falcone, who combined to write, direct, produce, and star in Tammy, the road comedy co-starring Susan Sarandon that opens July 2.

The 37-year-old actor, who plays McCarthy’s romantic interest, Bobby, in the film, gave EW his three tips for making a movie and marriage work, and then discussed his upcoming HBO series in a lengthy Q&A. READ FULL STORY

RADiUS-TWC acquires worldwide rights to 'The One I Love'

Director Charlie McDowell is starting his feature film career on a good note: RADiUS-TWC nabbed the rights to his debut The One I Love, which premiered at Sundance Tuesday night.

The film focuses on Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Elisabeth Moss), a married couple who go on a retreat to try to sort out some problems. This isn’t an ordinary romantic comedy though: Things get weird. No one knows how weird though, because the film’s cast and crew are keeping the bizarre twist a secret.

Written by Justin Lader, The One I Love is slated for a fourth quarter 2014 release. 

Sundance 2014: You're not supposed to know anything about 'The One I Love'

The One I Love is Charlie McDowell’s feature directorial debut. It stars Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass as a broken couple who go on a retreat to an idyllic home at the urging of their therapist (played by McDowell’s stepfather, Ted Danson) in an attempt to salvage their relationship. And that’s the only thing you should know about it going in.

“I think we just felt like the movie would play so much better the less you knew about it. That’s why we sort of hinted more at the tone of it. We just felt like from the very beginning that was the right way to approach it,” McDowell, who also wrote Dear Girls Above Me, told EW.

“We’re going to do our best to maintain that for audiences,” Duplass, who also serves as a producer, added the morning after the film’s premiere. “We’re going to ask and hope that people be respectful and we’ll see what happens.”

Sundance 2014: 'The One I Love' is 'more than just a couple fighting' -- VIDEO

The-One-I-Love

Charlie McDowell’s The One I Love stars Top of the Lake‘s Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed) as a troubled couple struggling with their marriage. The pair embark on a weekend trip in an attempt to fix their relationship only to find themselves faced with an unusual dilemma along the way.

Though McDowell, Moss, and Duplass are keeping tight-lipped as to what unusual situation transpires in the film, McDowell did tease that it’s a pretty big turn that happens early on in the film.

Sundance 2014: Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass try not to fight in 'The One I Love' -- VIDEO

ONE-I-LOVE-MOSS.jpg

The One I Love resembles a certain type of Sundance movie on its surface, especially since it stars Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss and indie filmmaker (and The League funny man) Mark Duplass as a married couple on the verge of separation. But not everything is as it seems in Charlie McDowell’s movie, which premieres at Sundance on Tuesday, Jan. 21. The couple’s therapist (Ted Danson) sends them on a weekend retreat, which seems idyllic but quickly turns weird. Perhaps otherworldly. “The most exciting thing about this movie is that there’s a very unexpected twist as to what you think this movie will be, and it happens very early on in the film,” says Duplass, who also executive produced. “Lizzie and I are predominately known for doing in-depth personal relationship type films and TV, and we wanted to do something that at once embodied and at the same time flipped that on its head.”

So what’s the twist?

Duplass won’t say, though in the video clip below, his character Ethan seems to be acting as though the wife he went to bed with is not the same woman who’s cooking him breakfast.

McDowell, whose parents are the actors Malcolm McDowell and Mary Steenburgen, was also challenged by Duplass’s cryptic brevity. The producer pitched the seed of a plot in a one-sentence email. “This was the first time that I gave so very little information of what I thought the movie could be and about, kind of purposely,” says Duplass. “That initial concept I gave him was, ‘Okay, here’s about nine words. There’s something interesting in here. Can you build a movie out of it?’ And he totally did it.”

And you thought you were stressed out.

The new movie Bad Milo!, executive produced by Jay and Mark Duplass, centers on a guy (Ken Marino) whose crazy anxiety and stomach problems are being caused by a demon living in his intestines. When he gets too upset, the demon comes out and attacks whomever is driving him crazy.

Or, as Marino previously told EW, ““I got a call from Mark Duplass, and he’s like, ‘Hey, Ken, do you want to be in this movie about a monster that comes out of your ass? I was like, ‘Where do I sign up? And when’s the fitting?’”

Casting Net: Edward Norton versus Michael Keaton in 'Birdman'; Plus Liam Neeson, Keri Russell, more

Yesterday we reported the initial casting for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman, but one of the key parts was left out of the announcement: Who would be the foil to Michael Keaton’s character’s comeback. Wednesday it was announced that Edward Norton would take on the role of the egotistical theater actor, which sounds like another inspired casting choice. We’re also kind of excited to see the failed Bruce Banner go head to head with one of history’s most beloved Bruce Waynes. Norton just wrapped The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson’s follow-up to Moonrise Kingdom. [Deadline]

• Liam Neeson is in talks to join Seth MacFarlane’s sophomore film, A Million Ways to Die in the West. Amanda Seyfried and Charlize Theron are already set to star in the film as MacFarlane’s ex-girlfriend and an outlaw’s wife, respectively. If the deal goes through, Neeson would play Theron’s outlaw husband. [THR]
