'After We Collided' Director Opens Up About Choosing Trevor Over Zed For Love Triangle

'After We Collided' Director Opens Up About Choosing Trevor Over Zed For Love Triangle

If you didn’t know, After We Collided was supposed to have two love triangles!

In the book by Anna Todd, there was a love triangle between Tessa, Hardin and Trevor, and another one between Tessa Hardin and Zed.

For the sequel, the director, Roger Kumble, chose to only have one due to a limited amount of time in the movie.

“The initial conversations with Trevor were more like going back to the book and knowing that she had two different love triangles going on in the second book. She had Trevor and she had Zed,” he told ET. “I said to Anna, ‘I can’t do both in a 95-minute film. It’ll short-trip everybody. I think we should pick Trevor because he was opposite of Hardin.’ And she agreed with that.”

“When you don’t have a lot of screen time to devote to this, he better be charming right off the gate. And that’s where I was leaning into some of those rom-com moments because it pushes the story along a lot quicker. And it’s fun to watch,” Roger continued. “In terms of why we didn’t continue that story through, that’s more trying to stay true to the other books. Knowing that Trevor character isn’t really a pivotal character in future books, it’s like, well, we should close this out.”

Hero Fiennes-Tiffin Talks Hardin & Tessa's Toxic Relationship In The 'After' Movies

It’s here! After We Collided is OUT NOW in the US and many other parts of the world!

Hero Fiennes-Tiffin recently opened up about the main characters’ toxic relationship and people criticizing it.

“People criticize it for advocating, like, a toxic relationship, and we need to stress that this is entertainment,” Hero told EW. “It’s not a rulebook for people to follow and take into their lives. But I think it is super entertaining to watch people try and get through that because Hardin and Tessa don’t want it to be toxic, they’re trying to fight through it, and it is for whatever reason.”

“A lot of the time, other scripts may have shied away from that because of the scrutiny that you may get for people saying you’re promoting a toxic relationship,” he added. “It’s the realness behind the fact that this is the case sometimes, unfortunately, and hopefully you can make it work and if it’s not good, it shouldn’t be. It’s super complex topic but that’s what is so interesting about it.”

“Ultimately you want to find out if they can make it work and if they do, how they do, and if they don’t, why it didn’t work,” Hero shared.

Josephine Langford & Hero Fiennes-Tiffin Dish on Intimate 'After We Collided' Scenes

Josephine Langford and Hero Fiennes-Tiffin are opening up about their new movie After We Collided!

The sequel is hitting US theaters and digital THIS Friday (October 23).

In a new interview, the stars of the franchise opened up about the intimate scenes in the movie, which bumped it’s rating up from PG-13 to an R rating.

“I mean I don’t think it was ever tough. It’s a job. We’re professionals, you know what you signed up for. You turn up and do your job,” Hero told TooFab. “But, 100 percent, this goes for all scenes, I think when you get to know the whole crew, and the whole cast, and we worked together before every scene becomes easier because you don’t have to break that ice anymore.”

“I think you always find something new that’s nerve-racking, or at least me personally,” Josephine added. “You always find something new to be scared of even if it’s like, ‘Oh I’ve done this before… but I’ve done this before, so can I do this differently?’”

'After' Movies 3 & 4 Announce New Cast Members For Upcoming Films

The After movies’ production team just announced some cast shakeups!

Fans had already figured out that a handful of characters were being replaced, and now we have all the official information.

Chance Perdomo has joined the cast as Landon, who was previously played by Shane Paul McGhie. See Shane‘s note to fans about leaving the series.

Carter Jenkins will also join the cast of After We Fell and After Ever After in the role of Robert, a potential love interest for Tessa.

Other cast shakeups include Stephen Moyer taking on Charlie Weber‘s role of Christian Vance and Mira Sorvino is replacing Selma Blair as Carol.

Another new addition is Arielle Kebbel, taking over as Kimberly from Candice King, who is pregnant with her second baby.

The changes in the cast are due to them filming in “Eastern Europe because the COVID numbers are far lower than where we shot movies 1 & 2 and this safeguards our cast. We are also shooting the films back to back, which means some of the original cast were not available to return for various reasons, whether it be scheduling or other commitments.”
