Stephen King Porn - The Tale of Josh Boone

Reactions:  
This is a coming of age tale of a screenwriter.

Josh Boone is a good friend of mine who went to California to try and break into the Biz. He had a script and he had an idea. It might have taken him ten years, but he just hit it big --- and I mean big with a Adam West Batman --KAPOW!!!

WRITERS just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. Starring Kristen Bell, Jennifer Connolly (Yes--Labrynth) and Greg Kinnear.

(L-R) Actors Patrick Schwarzenegger, Nat Wolff, Lily Collins, Liana Liberato and Greg Kinnear and director Josh Boone arrive at the "Writers" Premiere at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival at the Ryerson Theatre on September 9, 2012 in Toronto, Canada.



"Wildly funny and deeply touching in equal measure, Writers is a promising debut for Boone, aided in no small part by the stellar cast he's assembled. Veterans Kinnear and Connelly shine, but keep your eyes on the trio of Collins, Wolff and Liberatto: these expressive young talents nearly steal the show." - Jane Schoettle, Toronto International Film Festival
