Gotta put a big RECOMMEND on this event if you are in or can get to LA on June 9th.
Scott Neustadter is a writer on a tear. 500 Days of Summer is one of the wittiest screenplays in recent memory. Then he goes on to write The Spectacular Now which wowed Sundance. And now his most anticipated film, The Fault In Our Stars, opens mere days prior to this event. He should be on a career and emotional high at the event that will not be duplicated. The timing is too good. We’re talking about getting facetime with arguably the hottest screenwriter in town at the time of this event. I wanna buy a plane ticket and get out there!
