This weeks guest is Sean Durkin, the writer and director of not only of the ace Martha, Marcy, May, Marlene but of the excellent The Iron Claw which stars Zac Efron, Jeremy Allen White, Lily James and Harris Dickinson.
Dom Lenoir sat down with Sean and had a wonderful chat about his process as a writer, producer and director.
Challenging the misconceptions of wrestling and putting that onto film.
How to adapt a true story, and meeting real life wrestlers.
Going through the development process with Tessa Ross.
Making an important decision of cutting a character out of the movie.
Getting his career start through a major festival success at the Cannes and Sundance labs.
And the importance of collaborating with his own “brat pack”.
