The feature comedy is about an aimless ne'er-do-well who
becomes a tour guide in a historic estate and winds up befriending
the manor's resident ghost. Co-writers, directors and brothers
Justin and Christian Long talk to Write On about collaboration.
Christian says: "We happen to agree a lot creatively, so there's
usually not a lot of conflict. We definitely have different
approaches as people in that Justin… has a really big personality.
I'm a little more reserved, a little more shy, so it takes me a
minute to open up to people."
Justin talks about how writing the movie helped reconnect him
with his brother: "I was working in London and kind of lonely, it
was kind of a lonely job… [collaborating on the script with
Christian] was a way to feel like I was back with my brother, and
it was an easy way to bond from a distance, and it always made me
laugh to get these scenes from him, and then he would get my
scenes, and he'd punch them up and make them better, and I would
try to make his better, and that's kind of how we worked."
