Post-Halloween, also at the Goldwyn, AMPAS will present the roundtable discussion, "Perspectives on Screenwriting," on November 2.
The participants include Oscar nominees Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich), Ehren Kruger (The Ring), and Andrew Marlowe (Air Force One). Grant will address translating biography onto film, Kruger will discuss writing for films that lean on visual effects, and Marlowe will focus on writing for action films. The discussion celebrates the 25 year anniversary of the Academy's Nicholl Fellowships (all three screenwriters are past recipients). This year's recipients, to be announced later this month, will be selected from the 6,304 submitted scripts, hailing from 50 states and 60 countries.
