Robin Wright’s feature film directorial debut

Land (2021) is Robin Wright’s feature film directorial debut.

Previously, Robin Wright directed 10 episodes of “House of Cards” (including the 2018 series finale) and also the short film ‘The Dark of Night’, but this marks her first time behind the camera on a feature.

Robin Wright was initially attached only as the director but stepped up to star as well because of a scheduling issue. Wright says: We were losing our window of time. We had 29 days to shoot this movie, and we had to capture four seasons over two years and we were running out of time and worried about, “Are we going to be able to get someone in that time and not be dealing with other schedules?” Because some actors are doing two things at the same time. And we just couldn’t afford to take that risk. The producers said, “Robin, we’ve been talking about this movie for months in prep.” And every time we talk about it, I would kind of act out the scenes. And then they started laughing. They’re like, “You’re acting the part. Why don’t you just play it? You’re here.” And I was like, “Well, I’m going to be there anyway. Might as well.”
