The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

(2013)

Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have ruled the Las Vegas strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt's growing ego. But lately the duo's greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they've grown to loathe each other. Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show looks stale. But there's still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act—both onstage and off—if Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.

EXCLUSIVE: Steve Buscemi Talks ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’

Steve Carell. Jim Carrey. Steve Buscemi. Which of these things don't (seem to) fit?

Steve Buscemi is, perhaps oddly, one of the most versatile and unique performers in Hollywood. He's played a guy who lamented being named Mr. Pink. A foul-mouthed, José Feliciano -loving kidnapper. A former high-school outcast who holds a grudge against his classmates as an adult. A dim-witted bowler with a weak heart. A lazy-eyed eccentric. A misanthropic blues fan. A chameleonic lizard. A political animal who wields control of Atlantic City. And in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, a childhood best friend who becomes co-star of the title character's Vegas magic act.

EXCLUSIVE: ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’ Writers Interview

Writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein take us inside the magical world of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, in theaters March 15

Screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein both took very different paths to where they are today as one of Hollywood's hottest writing teams. John Francis Daley got his start in acting with the cult classic series Freaks and Geeks and films such as Waiting before landing a role as Dr. Lance Sweets on the hit Fox series Bones in 2007. Jonathan M. Goldstein started out writing for TV shows such as Big Wolf on Campus and The Geena Davis Show, which is where he met John Francis Daley for the first time. In 2011, their writing skills were put on the map with the hit summer comedy Horrible Bosses (they're also writing Horrible Bosses 2), and they return to the silver screen this weekend with The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. I recently had the chance to speak with the scribes about how they first started writing together, where the The Incredible Burt Wonderstone idea spawned from, their Vacation reboot/sequel with Ed Helms, and much more. Here's what they had to say.
