Filmmaker Adam McKay recently spoke with Deadline about how the reaction to COVID-19 from certain global political leaders reflected the events of the upcoming film.

“I was just as shocked as anyone else when the pandemic hit, although some climate scientists predicted an increasing rate of pandemics from changing weather and animals moving into different areas. They do not quite know that this pandemic is not separate from the climate crisis.

“I’ve never seen this come, and so when it happened, getting real beats from our movies played in front of us? It was both weird, incredible and scary and at the same time. But not so unexpected. It’s definitely one of “The strangest experiences I have ever had working on a project as far as reality is concerned. I have never experienced anything like it.”

Mark Rylance plays tech billionaire Peter Isherwell in the film, a character comparable to Mark Zuckerberg or Elon Musk.

McKay talked about writing the character of the billionaire before people started flying into space.

The instructor insisted: “No human being is meant to have so much power and money. These individuals are worth as much as many small countries and some medium-sized countries, and run these massive companies that have transcended our culture and our government. ..I do not know if I would behave much better if you gave me $ 80 billion.

“I think it makes you an insane person right away, and when I see someone who is worth the billions and billions who is not an insane person, I am amazed. They remind me of the kings of the 14th and the 15th and 16th centuries, the inbred megalomaniacs claiming to be God.So yes, they are a disaster, every time a failure emblematic of our society’s inability to function properly.

“Their space race is embarrassing. They look like giant children. I honestly have compassion for every person, and I’m not sure anyone could handle that kind of wealth and power. But I really can not say enough bad things about them. “

“Don’t Look Up” hits theaters on December 10, before launching on Netflix on December 24.
