Director Gillett reveals to Entertainment Weekly that even cast members were kept in the dark about important plot details, at least during the early days of the shoot.

"We were really careful to protect the big reveal of the movie," says the filmmaker. "We went as far as to withhold those moments in the script from the actors. We wanted everybody involved, to the degree that we could, to be a part of the whodunit. Obviously, you get to a point in the shoot  where you have to let the cat out of the bag, but we went pretty far into prep and into production with a surprising amount of secrecy maintained."
