Your new movie Murder, Anyone? - in a few words, what is it about?


It's about two writers that are writing something that comes to life in front of them.


What inspired you to turn this play of your late father Gordon into a movie, and was he in any way involved in this project before his passing?


My father had put on the play and that is one of the last creative endeavors he had before he passed away, and it's my way to honor his legacy. Sadly he was not involved in the process of making this movie.


How close did you actually remain to your source material when turning it into a film, how much artistic licence did you grant yourself?


I was very faithful to the source material, the only change is from screen to stage, as well as the additional mid credit scene.


Do talk about Murder, Anyone?'s brand of comedy for a bit!


The brand of the films comedy is very much my Dad, like the TV shows he did.


There is an intentionally stagey qualities to the scenes of the play within the film - so how did you achieve that, and was that intended from the get-go or just developed while making the movie?


It was intended from the get go, I always intended the movie to feel like that in order to honor the source material, and the struggle the characters are having inside the film.


What can you tell us about your overall directorial approach to your story at hand?


I very much tried to honor what my father did with on stage while putting my own spin on it


Do talk about Murder, Anyone?'s key cast, and why exactly these people?


Maurice LaMarche, Charles M. Howel knew my dad longer than I did, Carla Collins was an in the play. Outside of that you cast the people that are friends of mine and those that are connected with the material.


A few words about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


I think seeing the whole thing coming to life, it's nice to see everyone help me honor my father's legacy.


The $64 question of course, where can Murder, Anyone? be seen?


It's available on VOD wherever you rent a movie.


Anything you can tell us about audience and critical reception of Murder, Anyone??


I am just very grateful that people have enjoyed the film and very excited that people have fun with it.
