For Sam Mendes, 1917 is a real passion project Based on a real-life story his grandfather told him, Mendes is a producer on the film, directed it, and co-wrote it as well. He was able to deliver the exact vision he wanted for the film, and he told us that by shooting the movie as a story that takes place in real time, he wants audiences to feel like they’re on the characters’ mission with them.
