Hot off his Netflix apocalyptic comedy “Don’t Look Up” and double HBO hits with “Succession” and “Winning Time,” filmmaker Adam McKay has already set his sights on his next project.
As part of a Q&A at the Tribeca Film Festival, McKay revealed he’s at work on a new script that will be satirical like “Don’t Look Up,” but shift attention from climate change to financial system corruption:
“If the last movie [“Don’t Look Up”] was about the outcome of what’s broken about us, that we’re staring at the collapse of the livable climate, this one is more about the actual arterial blocks in our hearts, what’s causing it, which is, of course, big, dirty money. And it’s a comedy as well… blended with drama, but I would overall call it a comedy.”
McKay is also at work writing HBO Max’s anthology series “The Uninhabitable Earth” based on David Wallace-Well’s bestseller. His next credit is as a producer of the upcoming Ralph Fiennes and Anya Taylor-Joy led dark comedy “The Menu” in November.
