Screenwriter Stuart Wright talks to screenwriter, TV writer, producer, filmmaker & comic book author, BRYAN HILL.
Currently, he is working on the HBO Max show TITANS, the upcoming POWER RANGERS movie, the adaptation of the comic book BITTER ROOT for Regina King.
In the comic book world he’s written BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS, DETECTIVE COMICS and his own comic book CHARIOT that’s being developed now by Joseph Kosinski (TRON: LEGACY, TOP GUN: MAVERICK).
We touch on adapting comic books for the screen, but in short, our discussion could be summarised as: What you grew up with isn’t the best. Things were different before, and they will be different in the future. Don't grieve what changes. Find opportunity in what's emerging.
In what way is the seat of cultural power – in the entertainment business - changing?
In what way is the current state of flux redefining "celebrity"?
Young people aren't cherishing things, they're, but they're personalizing their media in a different way.
Why are changes accessibility not a threat, we just need to adapt?
And much more...
This episode was inspired by twitter thread that Bryan started in response to the 1st August 2021 - SUNDAY TIMES interview titled - "Is Matt Damon the last of Hollywood’s leading men?"
The opening para reads: Matt Damon is baffled by how his children watch films — infuriated as they pause and chat their way through the art form he adores. “The way they watch is different to how we did,” he says. “How can you watch a movie if you are texting? As someone who makes these things I can’t say I love that. Movies as we know them aren’t going to be a thing in our kids’ lives. And that makes me sad.”
