This week on The Moment, Brian Koppelman talks to Scott Rosenberg, the writer best known for his movies Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead, Beautiful Girls, and Con Air. The two discuss the impact of Scott's father passing away, creating languages in movies, and the themes that run through many of his films. Plus, Scott talks about how the Hollywood machine turned Gone in 60 Seconds into a different movie and why the true emotion of Scott's screenplays have rarely (if ever) been captured on screen.Topics mentioned:Things to Do When You’re Dead in DenverBeautiful GirlsCon AirGone in Sixty SecondsRoundersBoston UniversityUniversity of Southern CaliforniaThe Moment with Tony Gilroy: 10/28/14Sunset BoulevardThe Black Ice by Michael ConnellyOctober RoadA Clockwork OrangeHouse of GamesMarathon ManChinatownLethal WeaponLeaving Las VegasJumanjiGreaseElectra Glide in BlueThe Wanderers by Richard PriceLadies Man by Richard PriceMagnum ForceThe Longest YardThe Deer HunterGrosse Pointe BlankSolitary ManDisturbing BehaviorZooKangaroo JackPeople mentioned:Gary FlederLeslie EpsteinJoel SilverMike De LucaQuentin TarantinoHarvey WeinsteinShane BlackJon FavreauSteve GaghanPeter BergWilliam GoldmanStephen KingSalman RushdieDonald WestlakeDonna LangleyDennis LehaneBruce SpringsteenVin DieselJames PattersonTed DemmeThis episode of The Moment is brought to you by Braintree.
