That’s a picture of Craig finding out what was just officially announced: his movie The Skeleton Twins (which he co-wrote with our friend Mark Heyman and which stars Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader) is going to premiere in competition at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival! Needless to say, we’re over-the-moon excited about this; it was a journey seven years in the making. Now we’ve just gotta find some heavy coats and snow boots, it’s gonna be cold in Utah in January. Congrats to him and all of the talented people who worked on this movie. I can’t wait for all of you to see it.

hooray! here’s an article I wrote on Craig’s journey of 7 years, for Filmmaker magazine. Congrats to you both (hope you’re going with him to Utah, Adam!) http://filmmakermagazine.com/60950-second-time-director-craig-johnson-and-the-skeleton-twins/#.Up-aqPRDs40
Congrats to both of y’all! But especially to Craig. (hehe)
Hurray! I can’t wait to read all about it here.
Yay! Congrats to Craig! Good luck guys. Have fun.
Wow!!! You guys have it going on! Since I would personally love to turn my 7 year lawyer gig into a book/blog gig or a screenplay gig, I will take this all as encouraging news that there is potential for those who have a voice and a thing to say that is possible. Pending of course readability, interest, being discovered and all the other things that are important to making itlas a writer outside of the traditional channels these days
Ps, Sundance is so exciting that is really really awesome!
Congrats, Craig! The movie sounds great – and what a fun cast! I’m sure you’ll have a blast at the festival. Also, I don’t know how you get this fixed, but there seems to be a typo in the synopsis on imdb.com: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1571249/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 (sorry – I’m an editor, and I can’t help it!)
Adam, I live in Salt Lake and would be more than happy to meet you and Craig at the airport and take you to Park City, or wherever you are staying. It would be a pleasure to meet you after all these years!
Go to Forage in Salt Lake City, you won’t regret it!
Aw, Mazel Tov! What an awesome year it has been for you two – you’re a power couple! Craidam?
