#Sundance: Mark and Jay Duplass Talk Cyrus

Thompson on Hollywood

When Mark and Jay Duplass convinced Fox Searchlight to back their new movie Cyrus, they insisted that they be allowed to make a Duplass brothers movie: strong story, naturalistic acting, hand-held digital cameras. But they jumped from a $50,000 budget to $7 million, and hired name movie stars. In this bizarre, intimate, unpredictable and often hilarious family drama, Jonah Hill gives the performance of his career as a pampered mother’s boy who freaks when his mom (Marisa Tomei) brings home a new boyfriend (John C. Reilly).

In this two-part flip-cam interview, the brothers explain their process. They start with a script, but allow their actors to take off from there.
