Mega-hit Megamind, written by Emerson grads
November 12, 2010
Congratulations to Alan Schoolcraft ‘95 and Brent Simons ‘97, who wrote the screenplay for the #1 movie in North America. Last weekend, DreamWorks’ Megamind scored $43.7 million at the box office.
The colorful animated film is brought to life by Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Brad Pitt, and Jonah Hill.
Boston Globe film critic Wesley Morris calls the film “a deliriously handsome DreamWorks comedy.” And goes on to praise the writing and animation. “All the wit in Brent Simons and Alan J. Schoolcraft’s script is matched by the sort of painstaking visual ingenuity that makes most live-action production seem lazy with cynicism.”
