Interview: ‘Godzilla’ Screenwriter Max Borenstein
  |  @   |  

Hey geeks, FamousMonster here! I recently had the opportunity to speak with Max Borenstein, screenwriter of Gareth Edwards‘ upcoming Godzilla film, as well as a graphic novel tie-in, Godzilla: Awakening.

Borenstein wrote, edited, directed, and starred in the 2003 film Swordswallowers and Thin Men while a senior at Yale University. The film starred Peter Cellini, Zoe Kazan, Fran Kranz, and Graham Norris and won Best Feature and Best Screenplay at the New York Independent Film Festival.

What Is Life Worth?, Borenstein’s 2008 screenplay based on Kenneth Feinberg’s memoir, was honored with inclusion on The Black List, an annual list compiled by Hollywood executives of their favorite unproduced screenplays. His 2009 script Jimi, commissioned by Legendary Pictures and based on the life of guitarist Jimi Hendrix, was also included on The Black List.

Borenstein’s script for Legendary Pictures’ Seventh Son, inspired by Joseph Delaney’s young adult dark fantasy novel, The Spook’s Apprentice, is scheduled to be released on February 6, 2015. Godzilla, which comes to theaters on May 16, 2014, will be his first major motion picture screenplay to hit the screen.
