Fans are fired up about the rumors on “The House” sequel. It was one of the funniest movies in 2017, and Will Ferrell’s character got recognition. Amy and Will’s collaboration was so perfect that fans are waiting for the second part.
The movie had a budget of $40 million. After serious promotion and advertising, worldwide gross went up to $50 million. It was a successful project not only from a financial standpoint but also on a comedic level.
The original storyline from Jay Cohen
“The House” had a fascinating and unique storyline. Will Ferrell and Amy can’t get the money for their daughter’s university. The council of town decided to create a big attraction area instead of helping young students. Amy and Will’s characters are very interesting from various angles. Parents are willing to do everything to get money for their daughter’s university. They come up with exciting ideas – opening a casino at home.
During the interview, director Andrew Jay Cohen said that it was fun to work with Amy and Will. Andrew noted that they had visited dozens of casino resorts in North America. Both writers have visited casinos in the USA and Canada. Countries have very popular casino resorts, and visiting those resorts was important for the actual atmosphere.
The atmosphere of the actual casino
In the movie, we see real-life casino scenes. The director of the film focused more on real-life casino operations. People working on movies know that roulette, Black Jack, and slots are leading games in the casino industry.
Jay Cohen admitted that Canadian and American casinos gave him an excellent atmosphere. Director has copycatted the exact same aura in the movie. Jay Cohen said that it took him continuous hours to make a perfect copycat on how people play roulette or other games in the casino. Director and the movie writer had created an eye-catching scene solely related to roulette and Black Jack.
“The House” has an exciting concept. Jay Cohen’s main idea was to create a real-life casino. As mentioned above, the director has visited dozens of gambling venues in North America.
Will Ferrell’s and Amy Poehler’s collaboration
Fans were thrilled with creative collaboration. Amy and Will are Hollywood stars for many years, but they have never collaborated on a high level. Their sense of humor was the leading indicator of the movie’s success.
Will Ferrell‘s character is fascinating. Scott Johnson’s development is different and creative. Writers of the movie have transformed him from a regular and weak guy into someone who we all should be afraid of. Will Ferrell is also happy with character development. He loved playing Scot Johnson. During the movie premiere, Will hoped for a sequel and another chance to play Scott’s character.
There is a room for improvement
Can we see the sequel of “The House”? The question is – how far can Will’s character go, and can they actually run a casino at home? In the first movie, we saw that Amy and Will earned money for their daughter’s university.
The second part could be about the next level of the home casino. Money for the university was the main object of the first part, what would be the main goal for the second part? Maybe they can build the biggest home casino in the USA?
