John interviews screenwriter and director Drew Goddard for a Writers Guild Foundation event.

 

The first part covers Drew’s early history in Los Alamos, and how bleeding for Olympia Dukakis helped get him ready to work on Buffy and Lost. We talk about working harder, making connections, and saying yes.

 

We then discuss Cloverfield and Cabin in the Woods, and how he transitioned from TV to features.

 

Finally it’s time for Daredevil, Sinister Six and The Martian – the timing of which forced him to make some hard choices.

 

Audio comes courtesy the WGF. The recording is rough in places, particularly at the start. But there’s enough really good stuff here that it’s worth pushing through the tough spots.

 

My thanks to Drew, the WGF and the audience for a great night.
