“Well, I ain’t a lawyer, but it sounds like a good contract to me.”
Recognize that line? It’s the first words uttered in the classic movie, 42nd Street, written by Rian James and James Seymour.
How about - “I don’t want to be a product of my environment. I want my environment to be a product…of me.”
That line is the opening voiceover of The Departed, written by Sui Fai Mak, William Monahan, and Felix Chong.
Before a movie can ever start shooting with the glamorous cast, a writer has to sit down at the typewriter.
