In a tweet he sent out Wednesday, Iannucci proposed this destined Hollywood blockbuster:
The tongue-in-cheek post got a lot of traction, being retweeted thousands of times while receiving more than 45,000 likes.
“Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, whose character will be running for president again next season, got on board.
Actor Rob Delaney of “Catastrophe” and “Deadpool 2” chimed in.
So Iannucci asked the internet, what next?
And “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling answered:
Twitter users came up with titles such as “The Untrue Man Show” and “The Trumpman Show” in reference to “The Truman Show,” the 1998 film in which Jim Carrey’s character Truman was living in a reality show without his knowledge.
But one title won over Iannucci: “Fake America Great Again.”
Another plot was revealed Wednesday that sounded like a movie but was apparently real: A New York Times op-ed written anonymously by a senior White House official claimed a resistance movement within the administration aimed to secretly “thwart” the president from making bad decisions.
We’re not sure which has more comedic possibilities.
