Screenwriter David Koepp is a true master of hammering characters emotionally as they struggle to survive “summer blockbuster” stories. That sounds odd, but take a look at the films he’s written and it makes sense:
Snow White and the Huntsman 2 (announced)Angels & Demons, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, War of the Worlds, Spider-Man, Panic Room, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible, Carlito’s Way, Jurassic Park
A few years ago the WGA posted a series of videos titled “Angle On” – short interviews and/or helpful tips from the top screenwriters working in Hollywood today. In this Angle On, David Koepp talks about the one thing every screenwriter should know about writing.
