Variety shares details about the film that was directed by Ron Howard.

“The 50-minute “The Art of the Deal” film — which FOD says is “The New Film (Not) Based on the #1 National Bestselling Book by Donald Trump” — is directed by Jeremy Konner (“Drunk History”) and written by Joe Randazzo (The Onion, “@midnight”). The movie includes an intro from director Ron Howard.”

Additionally the movie stars Patton Oswalt as Merv Griffin, Alfred Molina as Jerry Schrager, Michaela Warkins as Ivana Trump, Jack McBrayer as Der Scutt (Trump’s architect), Henry Winkler as Ed Kock, who was New York City Mayor and Jacob Tremblay (Room), Andy Richter, Stephen Merchant, and Alf as themselves. Country crooner Kenny Loggins also appears and sings “The Art of the Deal” theme song.

The backstory to the film, a faux backstory to be more exact, involves 1988 Trump writing, directing, and starring in a made-for-TV movie that’s based on his very real and best-selling book entitled, The Art of the Deal. The film, however, never aired due to Trump allegedly becoming furious that his movie was bumped by a Monday Night Football game and refusing to let it be released.
