While you may not know the name William Goldman (though, if you're reading this site, you probably should), you've likely seen one of his movies. "Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid," "The Hot Rock," "All The President's Men," "Marathon Man," "The Princess Bride"... they speak for themselves. But if you really wanted to get inside the man's brain, here's your chance.

Even if you aren’t morally opposed to the idea of sequels, it’s hard to fathom that a long-dormant – yet still incredibly popular – title or franchise could produce a sequel that would live up to the expectations of the fans. For every time a studio thinks that a “Ghostbusters 3” or “The Dark Crystal 2” is a good idea, there’s examples like “The Godfather Part 3,” “Tron: Legacy” or at the bottom of that barrel – “The Son of Mask.”

The Stath is heading for a particularly busy year with "Safe," "The Expendables 2" and "Parker" all on the way, but he's just signed on for a new project, one that sees him working with a pair of Hollywood greats who haven't been heard of much lately.

"If you were to ask me, 'What would you change if you had your movie life to live over?' I'd tell you that I'd have written exactly all the screenplays I've written. Only I wouldn't have come near 'All The President's Men'" -- William Goldman, "Adventures In The Screen Trade: A Personal View Of Hollywood And Screenwriting"
