The site on Wednesday released a 50-minute faux television adaptation of Trump’s bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal."
Oscar-winner Howard directed Depp as the eccentric real-estate mogul at the peak of his business career, brokering deals and breaking hearts.
Funny or Die co-founder Adam McKay said the movie was released to coincide with Trump’s first-place finish in New Hampshire.
“It was a crazy, completely nuts idea that somehow we pulled off,” McKay told The New York Times, adding that they had to keep the movie a secret for several months.
It opens with a shot of Howard in the director’s chair, who explains that the movie was originally filmed three decades ago, but was bumped after a football game went into overtime and was “thought to be lost in the Cybill Shepherd blouse fire of 1989.”
In addition to Depp, the movie features a star-studded cast, including Alfred Molina, Robert Morse and Patton Oswalt.
