Peter Hanson, director and co-writer of Tales From the Script, has first-hand knowledge of the difficult and sometimes downright cruel business of screenwriting. Luckily for us, he hasn’t given up yet. Instead, he and creator/producer Paul Robert Herman have gathered 50 screenwriters — some you’ll know and some you won’t (yet) — to trade war stories. Script sat down with Hanson to discuss the film and a few personal stories. Tales From the Script is the first film in Script’s new screening series, in partnership with American Cinematheque.
