Rawson Marshall Thurber (director)

The movie went out in the USA three days ago and it is going very well. The audience really liked the film, according to what I read on Twitter – it is very rewarding.

I had two goals. Number one: make people laugh. Number two: say a little something about family.

Drug trafficking is a very serious subject – and there are great films about it, such as Traffic. But we are not Traffic, just a light version of that.

Every film is a challenge, from a logistical point of view. For shooting We’re the Millers we had three separate RVs – one of them was put in a closed studio.

There are two great pros in being a director. First: hiring the actors that you admire, and I worked with great comedians. Two: making choices about what's in and what’s out during the editing. But I would be a bad director if I ordered to act only according the script. I love improvvisation, and the funniest jokes in the movie are given by Jennifer Aniston’s and Jason Sudeikis’ talent.

Why did we choose “Miller” as family name? I should ask Bob Fisher and Steve Faber, but actually I think because it is a very common name in the States, but not so common to be banal.
