CWC Ep21: Screenwriting Advice from Edward Ricourt (Now You See Me, Jessica Jones)

Edward Ricourt got his spec read out of college, when he met Boaz Yakin. This led to Edward writing a horror script and going to film school at NYU.

(Boaz, by the way, is interviewed in our book, Creative Writing Career 2)

It was when Edward wrote “Year 12” that he really got his big break, and got into the Marvel Writer’s Program (with Nicole Perlman, who wrote Guardians of the Galaxy).

Listen to the podcast to hear the rest of the story, and what Edward recommends for getting established, approaching film festivals such as the Austin Film Festival, and how he got on Jessica Jones and now Wayward Pines.
