A stellar cast joined a dedicated crew in the fall 2011 to create this jewel of a film.
Set in the 1940s, The Screenwriters tells of the once-great Stewart Harvey, and the bumbling new kid in town, Chip Leninskovich, who together must hash out a feature-length screenplay in under twenty-four hours. With core ideals clashing and studio pressures mounting, will the tenuous partnership last the night?
Interrupting the writers throughout their ordeal, studio coworkers and enemies impose their ideas on the burgeoning script. Diva director Forrest Woods, glamorous actress Elaine Gibson, philosophical guards Frank and Henry, and Stu’s ex-flame Agnes DeMint inject comic relief as they complicate the writers’ journey.
