In-Depth Interview – Max Borenstein


If you’re a fan of monster movies, Max Borenstein is the guy who is about to make all your dreams come true. It’s been a good while since Godzilla and King Kong had their heyday, but they’re making a comeback in a big way. Max most recently wrote “Godzilla,” “Kong: Skull Island,” and he’s set to write another Godzilla and then ….. “Godzilla Vs. Kong.” After just having seen “Kong” in theaters, I have to say I’m excited to see what they’re going to do with this.

I dug up a great interview with Max, and thought I’d share it with you all. Here are a few questions from the interview.

Your reputation as a screenwriter was built on character-driven features that were relatively small in size. How did that lead you to Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island?”

You’re obviously very involved with what’s been dubbed Legendary’s MonsterVerse. Did you have any special affinity for movies like King Kong or Godzilla while growing up?”

Kong is one of the most recognizable icons of cinema. Is there anything you specifically wanted to do in Kong: Skull Island that hasn’t been done with Kong before?”
