Adam Mckay, writer and director of the Oscar-nominated “Don’t Look Up” (2021) is announcing a new project, titled “Average Height, Average Build”. When the announcement hit, a list of the cast was included, them being Robert Pattinson, Robert Downey Jr., Forest Whitaker and Amy Adams among others. Mckay became a well known director thanks to Step Brothers (2008), Talladega Nights (2006) and Anchorman (2004) but moved later on to politically charged satire films such as The Big Short (2015) and Vice (2018).
The project is described as a part serial killer thriller, part comedy, centered around a serial killer who uses politics to change laws for the purpose of making it easier to kill. The film has been cooking up for sometime and was announced by McKay during the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival but was only then described as a comedy, tackling big, dirty money.
The project has been passed on by several studios with them not being fond of releasing a dark political comedy. Both Netflix and Apple have not put in a bid yet, but if the film were to go to a streaming service, the A-list stars would require an up-front buy-out. McKay is looking to shoot the film in Boston this summer, if the project has got a hold on a budget by then.
