You may know Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon from Reno 911! or their earlier collaboration with The State, but did you know that they also have co-written screenplays that have earned more than a billion dollars in global box-office receipts?
They not only want you to know this, but they've also decided to share their insights with you in their new book, Writing Movies For Fun and Profit: How We Made a Billion Dollars at the Box Office and You Can, Too!
Here's an ad they produced with Funny or Die (also featuring Rob Huebel and Brett Gelman) to promote the book's launch this week. Roll it!
Garant and Lennon have screenwriting credits for Night At the Museum and its sequel, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, as well as for Balls of Fury, Reno 911! Miami, Let's Go to Prison, Herbie Fully Loaded, The Pacifier, and Taxi (aka the Jimmy Fallon cab movie). Of course, it's the two Night at the Museum movies that brought in almost a billion dollars combined.
