HOLLYWOOD – Movie rights of Michael Wolff’s bestselling book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House have been sold to Judd Apatow.
Judd Apatow today confirmed that he has bought the rights to Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. The book has topped best seller lists all over and has rocked the political world. Apatow spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec about the movie version:
It was a no-brainer that this was going to be a great film. Aside from the palace intrigue and the thousands of great moments that are packed into Michael’s book, it is also a flat out comedy. It turns out that we can do a gross out comedy in the style of Dirty Grandpa and it still be the most politically astute portrait of our times.
Who will play the role of Donald Trump?
Again a no-brainer! Alec Baldwin has essentially been auditioning for this movie, even before the movie existed. Other roles are going to be more challenging to fill. We don’t necessarily want to go completely Saturday Night Live. After all, this is also supposed to be a realistic account of what happens inside the corridors of power and we need to make that credible.
So who’ve you got?
We want the guy whose head melts in Raiders of the Lost Ark to play Stephen Miller and for KellyAnne Conway we’re looking for the Jim Henson workshop to give us something. We were modelling it on a Fraggle. Steve Bannon is a major character – Mel Gibson is a little old, but for sheer insanity James Woods would be perfect. Jared Kushner and Ivanka are going to be played by Sasha Baron Cohen in one of those half and half costumes, so that viewed in one profile he’ll be Jared and then he’ll turn around and he’ll be Ivanka.
Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House will be released in 2019.
HOLLYWOOD – Oliver Stone rushed to hospital with a suspected overdose of conspiracy.
Filmmaker Oliver Stone was rushed to hospital last night following a suspected conspiracy overdose. Fortunately this morning he was well enough to talk to the Studio Exec via one of those voice scramblers serial killers use when they taunt the police:
Hey Exec! How’s it going?
Good. How are you Oliver?
I’ve been better. This is a dark period for me. Trump is in the White House. Hillary Clinton is in the woods. The FBI and the NSA are testifying in a hearing. The chairman of the hearing is running round to the White House to tell the President what’s going on. Thereby sabotaging his own hearing. It’s dark times indeed.
Is it as bad as when you directed Alexander?
Let’s not go over the top. It’s bad but nothing can compare to Colin Farrell in a tunic.
So what happened?
As you know I’ve been someone who has been interested in secret machinations of power all my life. Whether it’s Nixon or JFK, or producing my Secret History of the USA documentary. But this stuff is the good stuff. I’ve never mainlined something so pure before. You have Russians, Wikileaks, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. And I haven’t mentioned Jeff Sessions and Michael Flynn. Or the Christopher Steele dossier or the fact that the Russians mentioned have started dropping like flies. Flies that have been shot and poisoned. Goddamn this stuff is powerful.
Are you going to make a film about it?
I’d love to, but who will believe it. I mean, we’re watching it unfold right now in front of our eyes and we don’t believe. I guess you could just watched Natural Born Killers again. That pretty much sums it all up.
What do you think is going to happen?
I don’t know. The doctors have prescribed that I watch nothing but Sesame Street for a year.
But Trump’s budget is going to cancel that.
Oliver Stone’s Secret History of the United States of America Volume Ten Trumped Up will be released in 2018.
WASHINGTON – Donald Trump’s cabinet firms up with Secretary of State confirmed to be Beast Rabban.
First, Rudy Guiliani out. Then Mitt Romney goes back to the binders. Beast Rabban will be President Elect Donald Trump’s Secretary of State. Emerging from Trump Tower, the Harkonnen issued a brief statement:
The Spice must flow.
Although the Beast’s appointment had been widely predicted, it still stirred some criticism as Democrats pointed out that it directly contradicted an election pledge to keep the spice out of politics. Kellyanne Conway, however, welcomed the move.
We are going to make Arrakis, I mean America great again.
Donald Trump will be president in the satirical movie which is about to become reality.
