First-time writer/director lands Will Ferrell in his indie comedy EVERYTHING MUST GO

Everything must go, except the A-list actor. This is how a first-time director makes his mark. At least, that’s howDan Rush, writer/director of the new indie comedy, Everything Must Go, starring Will Ferrell, made his.

“Small scope, big actor,” says Rush, of the advice a trusted colleague gave him on how to make his debut as a feature film director. What did that mean for Rush? He scrapped his big budget projects, and on the advice of fellow screenwriter David Benioff (TroyX-Men Origins: Wolverine25th Hour), he picked up a short story by Raymond Carver. The story was about a man living on his front lawn. The idea was just small enough to do the trick. Rush signed on Ferrell, and the big funny man brought his acting chops. The film is proof of Ferrell’s range and of Rush’s diligence on how to keep it small but deliver big.
