Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber On Writing

Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber were the duo that were recently nominated for having written the Adapted Screenplay, “The Disaster Artist.” This movie is based on the book, which was written about the filming process of what’s known to be the worst movie of all time, “The Room.” If you need some inspiration, just know that even the worst movies can be major successes. Don’t aspire to be the worst though. Please don’t.

There’s a full article on why “The Room” became the major success that it is. It’s a fun read: Vox – The Room: how the worst movie ever became a Hollywood legend as bizarre as its creator

Scott and Michael are well known for writing together. Other movies they’re known for are “500 Days of Summer,” “The Spectacular Now,” and “The Fault in Our Stars.”

Here are a few questions from the interview this week:

First of all, how did you guys discover The Room? Did you see the film in its first theatrical run? Was it the infamous Los Angeles billboard?

That’s interesting. I was going to ask about this: Do you recommend someone see The Room before they see The Disaster Artist?

How did you guys get involved in the project? What was the hook that attracted you?
