Will Someone Please Give Danny McBride Money to Make His Hick Heist Movie?

Here's Danny McBride telling GQ about a screenplay he wrote with Jody Hill after The Foot Fist Way, based on a real-life 1997 bank robbery in Charlotte: "These rednecks robbed Loomis Fargo for over $17 million. And they would have gotten away with it, except they stayed in the town they were living in. They literally moved from trailers into the richest neighborhoods in town, lived like kings, bought their wives tit jobs. Jody wants to make it like a southern Godfather." He also says he'd be interested in making it next, and it sounds awesome. Okay, Hollywood, make it happen! [GQ]
