Scott Frank: 2/2/16
Scott Frank is a distinguished screenwriter best known for movies such as Get Shorty, Out of Sight, Minority Report, and A Walk Among the Tombstones. Scott’s new novel, Shaker, is written in the same vein as Elmore Leonard's finest books and is out today. This week, Brian and Scott discuss the story of how Shaker came to be after more than 20 years (1:05) and why he has never had a better experience in the arts (56:31). Plus, Scott talks about how he manages a creative collaboration (13:53), battles his writing fears (36:23), and how things are finally lining up on his longtime pet project, Godless (59:30).Topics mentioned:Shaker by Scott FrankLittle Man TateMinority ReportA Walk Among the TombstonesOut of SightGet ShortyThe WolverineDead AgainHokeMarley & MeThe LookoutScott Frank’s BAFTA speechDog Day AfternoonButch Cassidy and the Sundance KidThe Frontpage by Ben HechtA Child of the Century by Ben HechtMonster: Living Off the Big Screen by John Gregory DunneThe Tim Ferriss ShowPeople mentioned:Scott FrankElmore LeonardDonald WestlakeCarl HiaasenPeter GethersBill GoldmanLindsay DoranSydney PollackDerek HaasBen HechtJodie FosterSteven SoderberghSteven SpielbergJohn Gregory DunneCraig MazinEmail: firstname.lastname@example.orgTwitter: @BrianKoppelmaniTunes: itunes.com/themoment
