Latter-day Saint screenwriters talk about their movie careers, 'Despicable Me 2'

Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio are screenwriting partners, but they prefer to work independently.

They divide up scenes before coming together to read pages to each other.

“The goal is to make the other guy laugh,” Daurio said.

For them, the arrangement works.

Their resume includes such films as “Bubble Boy” (2001), “The Santa Clause 2” (2002), “Where is Fred?” (2006), “Horton Hears a Who!” (2008), “College Road Trip” (2008), “Hop” (2011) and "The Lorax" (2012). Most notably, the duo wrote “Despicable Me” (2010) and its forthcoming sequel, “Despicable Me 2,” which hits theaters July 3.
