John and Craig tackle eight questions on the profession of screenwriting, ranging from studio execs to sharing credit to pitching via video.

It’s a big show. We cover a lot. And then we talk for quite a while about the unique beauty of Zoe Saldana and Bradley Cooper, because that’s what real screenwriters talk about.

And there’s news! Hangover 3 is in production, Big Fish has announced its Chicago dates, and Frankenweenie comes out October 5.

All this and more in episode 54 of Scriptnotes.
