We believe that THE WRONG GUYS FOR THE JOB is a fun story that fits the desired male-driven comedy genre while maintaining a relevant and accessible theme. The LGF team is excited to continue its partnership with Massify by working with a writer who we feel has the ability and drive to come into her own as a screenwriter.
Barbara’s project hits all the comedic notes that a broad comedy should, while also maintaining a witty connection to current affairs. The story takes a universally familiar situation and has made it light-hearted and entertaining. The concept of botching interviews to make other candidates stand out provides both physical and situational humor that will allow audiences to both identify with and laugh at these characters.
This pitch has all of the necessary elements to make a great short film. THE WRONG GUYS FOR THE JOB is a fresh story – and with the right director and excellent execution could potentially blossom into a full-blown feature film.
Thanks again to everyone who submitted during this phase, and we are all very excited to take the next step towards production.
