This week on The Moment, Brian Koppelman talks to Scott Rosenberg, the writer best known for his movies Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead, Beautiful Girls, and Con Air. The two discuss the impact of Scott's father passing away, creating languages in movies, and the themes that run through many of his films. Plus, Scott talks about how the Hollywood machine turned Gone in 60 Seconds into a different movie and why the true emotion of Scott's screenplays have rarely (if ever) been captured on screen.
