The Los Angeles Times film pundit Steven Zeitchik sat down with Anna Boden and Ryan Flack, the filmmaking team behind the upcoming It’s Kind of a Funny Story With Keir Gilchrist, Zach Galifianakis, and Emma Roberts).

While the directing duo is known for their tough realist work, they emphasize that this is “kind of a funny story.” Fleck tells Zeitchik, “The first thing we thought when we read the book is that this could be a modern-day John Huges film.” Boden adds:

There's something of The Breakfast Club in it, where these characters are stuck together and forced to interact….The thing about setting it in a mental hospital instead of high school is that it forces Craig to meet people he never would have met. It opens up his world.
