Screenwriters on screenwriting: the best in the business discuss their craft

Book Cover
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
Before any lights, camera, or action, there's the script--arguably the most important single element in filmmaking, and Screenwriters on Screen-Writing introduces the men and women responsible for the screenplays that have produced some of the most successful and acclaimed films in Hollywood history. In each interview, not only do the writers explore the craft and technique of creating a filmic blueprint, but they recount the colorful tales of coming up in the ranks of the movie business and of bringing their stories to the screen, in a way that only natural-born storytellers such as themselves can. These and other screenwriters have garnered the attention of the movie-going population not only with their words, but with headlines announcing the sales of their scripts for hundreds of thousands and sometimes millions of dollars. Anyone interested in writing, making, or learning about movies will enjoy reading this fascinating behind-the-scenes compendium that brings together some of the most prominent and talented screenwriters in modern-day filmmaking. Screenwriters interviewed include: Bruce Joel Rubin ( Ghost ), Ernest Lehman ( North by Northwest , Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? ), Amy Holden Jones ( Indecent Proposal ), Ted Tally ( The Silence of the Lambs ), Horton Foote ( To Kill a Mockingbird , Tender Mercies ), Andrew Bergman ( The In-Laws ), Caroline Thompson ( Edward Scissorhands ), Richard LaGravenese ( The Fisher King ), and Robert Towne ( Chinatown , Shampoo ).
