The Dialogue: Learning From The Masters - Jonathan Hensleigh
"Some writers are just not capable of outlining. They don't like it. They prefer to sit down, type "Fade-In" and find their way into the story. Then twenty pages in, they know the characters and can begin figuring out the plot. I work the other way, maybe it's my legal training..."
Jonathan Hensleigh knows good action. This former attorney stopped practicing law to pursue screenwriting, and with his big break writing episodes of "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" for Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, his foray into the action/adventure genre began. After writing the screenplay for Die Hard: With a Vengeance, he worked on such films as Jumanji, The Saint, Armageddon and The Rock. Hensleigh also wrote and directed the film adaptation of Marvel Comics' The Punisher, for which he is also writing the sequel. In this no-holds-barred interview, learn his approach to developing action scenes, how the attorney in him comes out in his writing and what he really thinks about screenwriting classes.
