- George R.R. MartinEveryone needs a little magic in his life.
So come join us at the Jean Cocteau next week, for MAGIC & MYSTERY WEEK. Starting this Friday, the whole week will devoted to wizards, sorcerers, illusionists, and practitioners of the dark arts (like screenwriting).
THE PRESTIGE... well, what can I say? Based on the novel by Christopher Priest, this tale of a bitter feud between two rival magicians is becoming a classic, and may well be the best film about the world of magic ever made. Directed by Christopher Nolan, adapted from the novel by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan, it stars Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Scarlett Johanssen, and Michael Caine.
on Sunday February 23, we will be joined at the Cocteau by JONATHAN NOLAN, screenwriter on THE PRESTIGE and MEMENTO, showrunner on PERSON OF INTEREST, and all around terrific talent. Jonathan will be introducing THE PRESTIGE and answering questions about the film... and he and I will also be doing a dialogue about scriptwriting and adaptation on Sunday afternoon. Should be fun.
Advance tickets to the movies, the magic shows, and the dialogue are all available on the Cocteau website.
So come join the fun. We promise not to saw you in half.
Will be cool to see two of my heroes together, I'm sure we'll get pics. Hopefully someone films the dialogue and uploads it to youtube.
