Video: Comedy Writing & Pitching

When your movie has Will Ferrell attached, you got yourself a go picture and you don’t really need to convince anyone that it works.

Still, Adam McKay has a few words of wisdom for comedy directors and writers preparing for a big pitch.

With thanks to Louise Lee Mei and Niels Abercrombie.

  1. At first, I was like, GARGH! He’s the idiot behind “Step Brothers”!

    And then I looked it up… and found out it made 40 million bucks – profit – box office alone.

    So the question is, do you want to make a “clever” film, or make 40 million bucks?


    1) First make 40 million bucks
    2) Then make as much “clever” crap as you like!

    (Protip: Get Will Ferrell attached first)
