John and Craig look at three current news stories from a screenwriter’s perspective, discussing how each lends itself to becoming a movie.
Would FIFA’s Stepp Blatter make a better Coen Brothers hero or a Sorkin villain? Could the Large Hadron Collider lend itself to a romantic comedy? Is there even a movie to make about campus sexual politics and academic freedom?
Also discussed: the trap of “Do what you love.”
