Script-to-Screen: Dracula

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

James V. Hart, writer of Contact, Hook, and  Epic, will “take a bite” into his internationally successful Bram Stoker’s Dracula for a very special and spooky Script-to-Screen. Using specific excerpts from his screenplay and clips from the final film, Hart will discuss the adaptation process, the script’s evolution, the writer/director relationship with Francis Ford Coppola, and how he sees the film now, 23 years after its release.

Those who enrolled in the advance sign-up for this session are required to show up 15 minutes early and will be admitted first. The panel will then open to remaining Badge holders.
