Reptile Director Grant Singer responds to the widely discussed Reddit theory suggesting that the colors worn by the characters in the film relate to their intentions.
During an interview with Collider, Singer discussed the Netflix movie Reptile color theory that gained popularity. While he acknowledged that this question might be more appropriately directed to costume designer Amanda Ford, he did recall engaging in conversations with her about the characters wearing colors that subtly allude to their intentions in the film.
“That’s one of the things where I was like, ‘Wow, people really read into those things.’ Again, that’s a question for my costume designer,” he says. “She might be like, ‘Absolutely!’ I don’t wanna answer that actually because I wanna let Amanda take responsibility over that because if she were doing that, I don’t remember if we had specific conversations. I know we had certain conversations in terms of maybe color things, in terms of color stories with each character.”
He continued, “I did read that. Again, those are when I’m like, ‘Oh man, people really engage with the movie. They’re going color beat by beat.’ That’s pretty cool… Oh, by the way, now that you say that, I do remember Amanda and I having conversations about the color for specific characters.”
