“Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders Talks About The Croods
The Croods, featuring the voices of Nicolas Cage,Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds, is about a modern (as modern as modern gets in the caveman era) family, learning many firsts—such as how to make a fire, wearing shoes, using a creative form of a cell phone—while they journey to “tomorrow” to keep safe from the end of the world. Great for all ages, the movie is relatable and very family-friendly. Tribute had the opportunity to talk to the talented directors, Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco (some spoilers).
How did you guys make up the names for the characters?
Chris: Their first names, we really wanted names to sound a little bit like we thought their personalities were and Grug, you know feels like a Grug, especially at the beginning of the movie. And Eep, we wanted just a bright, cheerful tone. And then you know the Gran [self explanatory]. Sandy makes no sense, we just threw that out there as the two-syllable little toddler. And then Guy was one that we just wanted him to be the new guy and just be generic, with his “Belt” and it just made sense for the whole fanciness of who he was, is to just have a really simple name.
The movie has so many one-liners, how did you come up with all the great Grug-isms like “Never not be afraid” and “Anything new is bad?”
Kirk: Well the “Never not be afraid” is actually my motto that I live my life on, it’s not just a line—it’s a lifestyle (laughs). So, I think that just came naturally to me. Chris, talk about some of the other one-liners.
Chris: Oh golly, you know what, these things never happen overnight. We worked on these for such a long time. Every once in a while, you’re just in the right place, at the right time and a line just comes to you and it’s one of those fun things about writing actually.
Is it normal for it to take eight years to write a script?
Kirk: Yeah, well some movies, a lot of movies bounce around development. You know with Dreamworks, we only make two, sometimes three movies a year and with sequels, the originals do take time to get right because we love the worlds that we’re exploring, but we have to find the right story for that world.”
