Directors Jim Rash and Nat Faxon say they had to write "letters" to get actors to star in their new movie The Way Way Back.
The pair told Newsbeat they also had to convince actor Steve Carell by filming where he and his family go on holiday each year so he could take part in the movie.
The Oscar winning duo also reveal how they got Sam Rockwell on board.
They were talking to Newsbeat's Entertainment Reporter Chi Chi Izundu.
