The film is set in the beachside neighborhood in the 1950s, a place and period Woody knows well. The filmmaker shares with the publication, "I grew up fairly near there, and I always thought it was a very colorful atmosphere to have a story in," adding, "[In] 1950, I was 15 years old and a perfect age to spend time there, so many of my fondest memories of Coney Island are from those years."
Speaking about the leading lady, Kate, Woody says, "There are certain actors and actresses that I consider great - there's Cate Blanchett, there's Meryl Streep - and Kate Winslet is one of them." According to him, "there are really just a few actresses that are deep enough to really give me a sensational rendering of the character."
"Wonder Wheel" also stars Juno Temple and James Belushi among others. Before hitting U.S. theaters on December 1, the film will premiere as the closing night film at the New York Film Festival on October 14.
