Our guest today is screenwriter Stephen Susco. Over the last decade Stephen has optioned many scripts, been hired to adapt various materials by major studios, and experienced first hand what it’s like to work within the system. His screen credits include The Grudge, which grossed over 110 million dollars domestically. In our discussion Stephen explains how he got his break, the way he pitches a project, and what a wild ride the development process can be. Later this year he’ll direct a project that he’s adapting from a Tim Lebbon’s novella entitled “White.”
