Speaking to Entertainment Tonight in an interview published on Thursday, The Shining star discussed her experience returning to film after 20 years of being on hiatus from acting in the upcoming horror film The Forest Hills.
“It’s actually so much fun to act in a movie. I should appreciate every minute of it”
Duvall is set to appear in the upcoming horror film The Forest Hills, in which she plays the role of Mama in the werewolf movie, mother to Rico (Chiko Mendez) and Emily (Linda Flores). Directed and produced by Scott Goldberg, Forest Hills’ cast also includes E.T. and The Howling alum Dee Wallace plus Terminator 2: Judgment Day’s Edward Furlong.
Meanwhile, director-producer Goldberg told”The best part of working with Shelley is that she fills the room up with her kindness and love. She is kind, and you can see that even after all these years since her retirement from acting, she is still a true professional.”
Cinematographer-producer Scott B. Hansen added, “Working with Felissa Rose and Shelley Duvall was an amazing experience, and you could see the chemistry on set.”
Duvall’s last film role was in 2002’s Manna From Heaven, after which she announced her retirement from acting. She recently told that her character in Forest Hills has a “quiet rage, which sometimes turns explosive.”
She also praised the “fantastic” two-man crew as “real professionals,”.
