The Dialogue: Jim Uhls

2006 NR

In this installment of the Learning from the Masters series, screenwriter Jim Uhls explains how he wrote the screenplay for Chuck Palahniuk's seemingly unadaptable novel &NFi;Fight Club&NFi_;, which became the subversive 1999 hit directed by David Fincher. Uhls describes how to adopt a journalistic strategy when developing a killer pitch, as well as his peculiar approach to interviewing his own characters.
