Write On: A Screenwriting Podcast

Nov 29, 2021

A soldier has been tasked with preventing an imminent terrorist threat to the Vatican in this action thriller from filmmaker Abel Ferrara starring Ethan Hawke. "[The film is a] real inside take on the CIA but it's also the understanding of truth,” Abel tells Write On. “We're living through the pandemic, so it's news, it's fake news, it's Photoshop, it's images, it's 'What's the truth?' What are you seeing?"
Abel goes on to talk about his writing process: "I'm writing [the script], and I don't know where the film is going. I'm writing it, and I’m feeling it, and I'm feeling it organically from scene to scene. I don’t have anything structured, I don't have any outline; I'm letting it surprise me."
