    As for filming the flick, Hendricks said, "We'll start when I finish the next season of Mad Men, so we'll start shooting in May."

    "I know that Ryan's calling the whole movie a fantasy noir, that's the best way to describe it," Hendricks says of How to Catch a Monster. "I play the mother of two young boys in this town that's really down and out. A lot of people are moving out, a lot of people are being kicked out of their homes. And I'm a mother who's really trying to find a place for my boys and protect them the best way I can."
