Opening in theaters on March 2nd is the new comedy Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie, which is based on the popular Adult Swim series Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Just like the series, the film stars Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim as themselves, while the two comedians also co-wrote and directed the movie together. Much like the series, the film features appearances by several famous actors and comedians including Zach Galifianakis (Due Date), Will Ferrell (Everything Must Go), Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park), John C. Reilly (Terri), Will Forte (MacGruber), Erica Durance (TV's Smallville), Twink Caplan (Clueless), Ray Wise (Robocop), William Atherton (Die Hard), Robert Loggia (Scarface), and Michael Gross (TV's Family Ties) as the Narrator. 

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim to discuss Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie. The two comedians talked about their new film, the fictional research company that helped them develop it, their writing process, adapting their humor from the series for the big screen, the film's remarkable cast, and what type of film they would make if they really had a billion dollars.
