The Huffington Post just today came out with a video interview with Oscar-winning screenwriter and director John Ridley taped at the SXSW Festival.
Ridley is currently in Austin to both attend the U.S. premiere of his Jimi Hendrix film with Andre Benjamin, All is By My Side, and also directing the pilot for his new TV series for ABC, American Crime.
He mainly talks about the Hendrix film and other things, but yes, he does bring up the issue about that feud with Steve McQueen and whether there is one or not. (And Ridley has had feuds before with other directors such as David O. Russell and his film Three Kings).
So is there one or not? You’ll have to watch and find out for yourself.
