On the morning after Donald Trump’s “yuge” win in the New Hampshire primary, it has been revealed that the comedy website Funny or Die has created a Donald Trump movie starring Johnny Depp that they have been working on for months. It is a TV movie adaptation of the Trump bestseller, The Art of the Deal.

Or actually, they “found” a Trump movie from the 1980s.
The humor website Funny or Die on Wednesday began streaming a 50-minute comedy that finds Mr. Depp portraying the businessman turned politician, full-blown comb-over and all. Kept a secret for months — no small task in Hollywood — “Funny or Die Presents Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie” was released to coincide with Mr. Trump’s victory on Tuesday in the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary.
“It was a crazy, completely nuts idea that somehow we pulled off,” said Adam McKay, a co-founder of Funny or Die, which also counts Will Ferrell and Judd Apatow as principal partners and produces exclusive material that often features well-known stars. Mr. McKay, the director of “The Big Short,” which is a contender for best picture at the coming Academy Awards, added that the site’s newest skewering of Mr. Trump will “with any luck” annoy the presidential hopeful.
According to the movie’s own mythology, told in narration by director Ron Howard, Trump himself made the movie in the 1980s as writer/producer/director but he angrily ordered it into a vault after a football game went into overtime.
In addition to Depp, many other notable actors appear in the movie including Johnny Depp, Ron Howard, Alfred Molina, Robert Morse, Patton Oswalt, Jack McBrayer, Henry Winkler, Stephen Merchant, Christopher Lloyd, Kristen Schaal, Andy Richter, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, Tymberlee Hill, Alf, Jordan Coleman, Joe Nuñez, and Jeremy Konner. The role of Ivana Trump is played by actress Michael Watkins. It even sticks to its 1980s lineage with a theme song written by Kenny Loggins.
The site has taken shots at Trump before, with a video called “Mexican Donald Trump” starring comedian George Lopez, which has been viewed over 10 million times.
