Funny or Die’s 50-minute Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie is ostensibly a TV movie of Trump’s 1987 memoir and stars none other than Johnny Depp as the reality star turned presidential candidate.
“We make a lot of spoof film trailers. Essentially this is just a longer version of that,” says Chris Bruss, Funny or Die’s president of digital content, to Adweek. “There are certainly some stories from the [real] book that make their way into certain scenes in the film. But really, this was a comedic premise of this crazy, absurd person and having fun with that. It’s highly fictionalized. I mean, Alf is [Trump’s] best man at his wedding. But, he really did sue the NFL and he really did have to secure that property to build Trump Tower. All of those things really happened, but they didn’t happen exactly the way that we portrayed them, obviously.”
