The film you know as ‘Super Troopers’ is a film that almost didn’t happen. The script was originally commissioned and developed by Miramax, but when it failed to get a green light, Harvey Weinstein was kind enough to give it back to us so we could make it elsewhere.Jay Chandrasekhar
A lot of comedies in the 1980s and 1990s had all these colors and were so brightly lit. But John Landis had this dark style, like a Scorsese film.Jay Chandrasekhar
With ‘Puddle Cruiser,’ the first 15 minutes are the weakest. When you’re total unknowns and you have a weak opening, it’s a real problem. At some screenings, we’d see the odd walkout before the movie even got going. But to counteract that, we’d do sketches before the show to introduce the film.Jay Chandrasekhar
That movie – ‘Airplane!’ – it influenced so many of us.Jay Chandrasekhar
We can’t make movies without scripts, and there’s no cost to writing a script, so my advice to newcomers is do it yourself: Write your own script, shoot your shorts, edit your shorts.Jay Chandrasekhar
