Austin , Tx 78750 In his lively debut as a director, screenwriter Shane Black creates a movie that is defiantly smartass and too cool for the room. I couldn’t have liked it more.”
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
One of the Austin Film Festival’s most popular panelists – if not the most popular – Shane Black made his mark as a screenwriter when his action/buddy script “Lethal Weapon” became a runaway hit at the box office. With his tongue-in-cheek sensibility, Black immediately became known as a writer who could create memorable and complex characters. Follow-up screenplays include “The Last Boy Scout” and the seriously underrated “The Long Kiss Goodnight”.
We hope you’ll come and take part in what promises to be a fascinating and entertaining discussion on creating timeless tough guys and even tougher women, Ponzi schemes, exhilarating plot twists, directing your own script, the meaning of life, and what smashes into what else and what explodes when that happens.
