SDCC Exclusive: Film School Rejects Captures The Mystery Team


One thing you can’t accuse Film School Rejects of is sitting on their laurels and being quiet when it comes to singing the praises of Derrick Comedy and Mystery Team. Seriously, this movie deserves both your eyeballs and your dollar bills. Possibly your ears as well, but if you can read lips then you’ll still enjoy. it. We caught the flick at Sundance, and haven’t been able to shut up about it. Part of the reason for that you’ll be able to see in this video interview straight from Comic-Con: these guys are damned funny.

We sat down with Donald Glover, D.C. Pierson, Dominic Dierkes, Dan Eckman, and the lovely (hey, those guys are lovely too) Meggie McFadden to talk about the film, Comic-Con, and what’s next. If you head beyond the break and watch the full (and hilarious) video, you’ll see why Derrick Comedy should be on your radar as a group to watch in the next few years. They feel like they’re teetering on the cusp, and will hopefully land in America’s lap soon.

And by soon we mean this Fall, as the movie rolls out in a tiered released and will be coming to a city near you. If it doesn’t, start saving your gas money now, and get your butt to a theater that’s showing it. You can thank us later.

I was raised in the Metroplex of Dallas/Fort Worth, and fled at the age of 18 to Austin, Texas, where I was inundated with a whirlwind of new pop culture experiences by mainlining movies, television, and video games. I now live on the fringe of Los Angeles and work at Riot Games.
